Mekong Quilts (Phnom Penh)
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Mekong Quilts was founded in 2001 as an income generation project under the umbrella of parent NGO, Mekong Plus. They sell quilts made by women in poor and rural communities across Southeast Asia.
Mekong Quilts employs women in communities northeast of Ho Chi Minh City as well as, offering employment opportunities to Cambodian women through Mekong Quilts.
All profits generated from the sale of the quilts are reinvested into the community through Mekong Plus: scholarships for children, agricultural training and micro-finance programmes, etc. As a result, not only does tourism provide sustainable employment to women, but the profits from the sale of the quilts also benefit the poor communities in which they live.
They have multiple locations around the city, and around the region, so check their website for further specifics.
