SPREAD THE WORD #THELITTLEMARKET
In 2013, Rachel Dodson founded Penh Lenh, which is based in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. The organization has a mission of empowering marginalized and at-risk young females in Cambodia. Penh Lenh, which means “whole,” helps to provide a high quality of education, vocational training, career opportunities and professional skills, and finance and budget training to these young women who are part of the organization. This also ultimately benefits the larger community.
Artisans work as a team throughout the production process, and the time to make each fair trade bracelet varies depending on the piece; the production time can take 30 minutes to three hours. Penh Lenh’s artisans receive their production goals at the beginning of each day, and, based on the piece that they are making, they will often help each other with accomplishing these set goals. They receive a printed template so that they are aware of the design for the bracelets, and everyone conducts their own quality checks. Once the artisan finishes a quality check, another artisan and product manager will conduct quality checks on the product. Penh Lenh also provides artisans with training for packaging, so not only is each piece carefully handcrafted, it is also packaged with care. Originally, a goal for the beading technique was to use it for the therapeutic benefits that it provides, such as for those who are recovering from experiences such as an illness. The caring, motivated, and passionate artisans have experienced hardships in life and can take pride in the fact that they are creating a beautiful piece of jewelry that is of high quality.
Located in Southeast Asia, Cambodia has a mostly flat terrain with mountains in the southwestern and northern regions. Agriculture includes rice, corn, and vegetables, while popular industries are tourism, rice milling, fishing, wood, construction, and garments. The nation has seen strong economic growth and development in the recent past; from 2000 to 2010, the GDP grew at an average annual rate of more than 8 percent. However, Cambodia is one of the poorest nations within the continent of Asia.
