Find out how HUSK has helped create income generation opportunities for unskilled vulnerable women. Our Softies project has enabled women to support their families and allow them to buy things like food and medicine.
One of the major challenges faced by vulnerable families is the ability to provide safe, secure housing. By working with families we build stilt homes using local materials like wood, bamboo and thatch to build a safe family home.
In 2014 HUSK created a small community team & together created Pon Lork Thmei or the New Growth nursery. The nursery provides fruit trees which are mostly planted within the local community. The proceeds provide additional income for the nursery team and 45%of the proceeds support projects at the local government primary school.
Through our work with the community we have identified a number of major health and hygiene focus areas. Our team are working hard with local partners to improve awareness, educate and help implement solutions.
With your support we have provided over 200 families with bio sand water filters. Capable of producing 60 litres of safe drinking water every day. Importantly our job only begins with the filter the bigger task is the education and follow up visits that go along with change projects.
This fantastic tour is run in conjunction with Beyond Unique Escapes and was specifically created to provide a way to help assist villagers with identified needs and give them an opportunity to benefit directly from tourism.
Many of the families HUSK works with have extremely small land, or land that's flood prone. Growing vegetables in these conditions is extremely difficult. Vertical gardens provide an easy way to grow vegetables to supplement the families diet or earn some extra income.

No school uniform = No school.

Can you imagine your childhood without ever picking up a story book, or having a story read to you? For most Cambodian children this is reality. Our school library is giving children the opportunity to experience the joy of reading, to explore beyond their world and a chance to learn.
