ReCreate operates in partnership with a New Zealand Registered Charitable Trust, committing 100% of our profits towards empowering disadvantaged people and communities in Cambodia. Since 2013 our sewing centre in Cambodia has trained students in the garment production process — from design and pattern-making through to sewing a finished garment. Throughout this process they are paid a wage to support themselves and their families as they learn.
In addition to sewing training, we also support and partner with a Cambodian NGO to provide a number of community initiatives which include:
- Family support through food assistance, financial and social support
- School sponsorship through the provision of uniforms, stationery and school fees
- Medical assistance through pregnancy and birth, serious illness and injury, hospital stays and community medical clinics
- Community development through the provision of clean water and the construction of community toilets and homes for families in need
