Sure you have heard the quote, ” Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime ”
It is now proven that handing out money and free “things” (clothes, food, cows, chickens, toilets….the list goes on) disempower people, create permanent dependence and has a very limited life cycle. We believe the challenges such as unemployment, poverty, job loss, environmental degradation and loss of control the communities face—need to be addressed in a holistic and participatory way.
Here is how you can support our initiatives.
Step 1 We identify an aspiring entrepreneur whose project or business you would like to support.
Step 2 Sonas will support the entrepreneur on the ground by providing education, training and access to the market ( one of the biggest missing link in Cambodia )to help ensure their business is sustainable.
Step 3 Follow their journey by getting regular updates. You may also share your own knowledge, training and experience with the entrepreneur.
Step 4 Get your money back when the entrepreneur pays back their initial seed investment. Once you are repaid you can withdraw or reinvest.
