“The Local” for sponsors

What is the local?

13263900_777681648999463_3433478139516836398_n

One of our university students started a little business with two of her fellow students: “The Local”. They sell various products like bags etc. that are made from traditional scarfs (Krama).

The products are all made by former sex workers who have the possibility to get a new perspective for their life. At www.made27.com you will find more information about the production facility.

We at Kidshelp Kambodscha e.V. are happy about this proactive initiative and think that this great project is worth supporting.

Therefore we would like to give you the chance to order a present for your sponsored child or university student by ordering one of the products at “The Local” for them. It could be for their birthday, their graduation or anytime you would like to surprise them with a little gift.

You will find all the products at the bottom. They can be ordered in different colors. We will collect all the orders for three months and deliver them to your sponsored child or university students at the end of each quarter of the year. Please take it into consideration when you order.

All revenues go directly to the three students! Kidshelp Kambodscha e.V. does not make any profits from these orders.

What is a Krama?

“Krama” or sometimes “Kroma” is a traditional scarf from Cambodia.

The word „Krama“ sounds more like „Kromar“ in Khmer. The initial “K” comes from deep within the throat.

Cambodians wear this kind of cloth everywhere regardless ob being rich or poor, man or woman, in cold or hot conditions.

In Cambodia the Krama is an everyday item. It is used for carrying things like wood, chicken or babies but also as a protection against dust or sun or as a rag. It can serve as a sun sail, a pillow, a hammock, just an accessory and a lot more.

In the little village where we run our English school, you can always hear the rattling and clattering of the looms where the Kramas are being made.

There are different designs and colors, but the most traditional one is the so-called Vichy pattern which is red and white checkered and was also part of the Khmer Rouge uniform.
