“I am the oldest son in my family but my family has always been very poor. My father is addicted to alcohol and my parents fight a lot. When I was younger I started to sniff glue to cover my hunger pains and got addicted. I went through a drug rehab program and was able to stop sniffing glue but I still didn’t have money to go to school. I started working for Justees in 2009 and it has provided me with the money to go to school. Ten years later, I have finished university and graduated from Justees.”
Justees is a social business in Cambodian slums providing employment and producing fair-trade clothing.
But more than that, they are addressing widespread social problems in Cambodia by mentoring the next generation of men.
