Collaboration in Action
Human and Hope know that we can’t do everything by ourselves – collaboration is the key. That’s why we partner with numerous NGO’s and socially responsible businesses in Siem Reap so we can expand our impact in our community.
Women’s Resource Center – Women’s Resource Center provides women and girls in Cambodia with emotional support, referral services, and informal education so they can be empowered to make informed decisions about their lives. The sewing students and staff at Human and Hope partake in their women’s health workshops, which cover family planning, contraception, pregnancy and pre- and post-natal care, safe abortion, anatomy, nutrition, safe sex and sexually transmitted infections.
Eco-Soap Bank – Eco-Soap Bank is a humanitarian and environmental non-profit organization working to save, sanitize, and supply recycled hotel soap for people living in low-income countries.

Via online programs and in person workshops and consultations they address the issues around plastic consumption, pollution and solutions. Human and Hope’s staff have participated in workshops that have provided them with ample knowledge on the issues of plastic and waste management, which they pass onto the students to create long-term change.
