HN Issue 18 | Vegetable Garden Lifts This Mum Out of Poverty

To get an inside perspective on the changes in Anlong Veng, Cambodia from the start of FH programing seven years ago to graduation in 2015, we interviewed four community members. They each described their unique experience of partnership with FH and their development journey.

Chea Charka is a 43 year old mother of five children and active volunteer in Toul Treas. This is her story.

CHEA CHARKA'S FLOURISHING CUCUMBER JUNGLE
"After FH came to help develop my village, I became a volunteer. During that time I also learned some agriculture techniques. For example, vegetable planting, animal raising, making organic compost and natural pesticide. FH staff is such a great encouragement to me; they always came for home visits and were coaching me. Through them I understood the value of education and why I should allow my children to go to school and join a children’s club.

Now I grow a vegetable garden using the techniques I learned from FH. I plant cucumber, wax gourd, morning glory, mint, pumpkin, corn, long beans, cabbage, onion leaf, chili, cassava, and rice. Our food is not a problem anymore and I can earn 30,000 R to 40,000 R ($9.46 CAD - $12.60 CAD) per day by selling my vegetables.

Now my family is very happy because we are far from who were before - we have enough food to eat, our health is good, and our children go to school regularly. We appreciate all you do from your country to see good things happen to us.”

To partner with more moms like Chea Charka, buy fruit and veggie seeds!
