For years, Phany, a rice farmer living in western Cambodia, struggled to grow enough healthy crops to make a living due to recurrent water shortages and environmental changes.
Her family experienced food scarcity and she was forced to leave her young daughter behind to take up construction work in the city.
With the support of people like you, Phany joined a program supported by Caritas Australia where she learnt farming and irrigation techniques to maintain crops year-round.
With her newfound skills, Phany was able to return to her village and earn enough to support her family and send her daughter to school.
You can help provide vital training to vulnerable people like Phany so they can break the cycle of poverty.
