Many disabled women in Cambodia live dangerously below the poverty line.
Activists in Cambodia told us they urgently wanted to help lift disabled women out of poverty. So, for the last 3 years, we’ve been supporting them to do just that.
We gave the poorest disabled women, living in rural villages, piglets to raise and provided training in how to look after them, sell them and manage their finances.
