How it works

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.

That is why we believe in Community Economic Development through Social Enterprise approach.

Here is how you can support our initiatives. 

Step 1  We identify an aspiring entrepreneur and find out what their true passion is.

Step 2  Sonas team supports 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  We share their journey of progress with the other like people who want to follow their footsteps.

Step 4  They then mentor one more person to create a multiplier effect and help us scale the impact.
