Sewing the seeds of change
Red Dirt Road originally began its journey with a full heart, and the vision to help one woman learn to sew. That young woman was Hab Saly.
She, in turn, helped to teach seven other women how to sew. Together in their village home, deep within the Cambodian jungle, an association came to life known today as Red Dirt Road.
Hard working and inspired to enjoy a better way of life, a group of friends soon became a family of highly skilled seamstresses. AMPM had the pleasure of playing a small role in this inspiring story.
With two popular product lines, a new website, and a growing base of loyal customers in the US and beyond, Saly recently hired three new seamstresses to meet the expanding demand, and the team is working to fund a larger, more efficient and weatherproof workshop.
Your purchase of these beautiful designs enables these mothers to feed and educate their children while living at home. Before Red Dirt Road, many worked in the oppressive garment factories in the city, rarely seeing their children. All profits of Red Dirt Road are returned to the women.
