Three years ago I went on a backpacking trip that unexpectedly changed the course of my life, and I feel very lucky to have found a way to continue to support a place that so profoundly impacted me, especially since you all get to share in this special connection. It was in a poor, remote village during that initial visit to Cambodia that I first witnessed the joy of a child receiving a new school uniform. Each child beamed with such immense confidence and glee as they received this critical key to an education. It was then that it clicked that this was one small yet significant way to invest in the country’s future.
From supporting local artisans in the traditional art of weaving, to commissioning seamstresses to sew school uniforms, to establishing a trusted partnership with BFT Center to facilitate our giving process, having a direct and sustainable impact on Cambodian communities on several levels is at the heart of the krama wheel cycle.
Our vision is to inspire other wanderers and wonderers to embrace opportunities to make a positive impact in the world. Whether through our store or an experience of your own, the possibilities are endless. I am ever-grateful to all of you who are reading this and contributing to the krama wheel journey in your own special way. You put the wheel of positive and sustainable change in motion and I cannot wait to see where this momentum takes us in the years ahead!
