“What initially started as something as simple as me wanting to get a shirt made for myself ended up as a sewing project with 15 young women coming five days a week to my home. I designed lots of different products for them to make and I then planned on selling them once I returned for a visit in Australia. I had no idea how to run a social enterprise and thankfully not long after I met a woman named Monika who had a knitting project in Phnom Penh. I was super keen to learn from her experience and create a product that we could work on together.” – Veronica Sherman
