Afesip Fair Fashion Creates Design and Clothing Products in Cambodia

— January 22, 2013 — Social Good
Founded in 2003, Afesip Fair Fashion (AFF) works in and around commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) in Cambodia. The social enterprise, which is based in Phnom Penh, offers job training and fair trade employment. As a company with several bottom lines, products created by the producers are for sale and range from a home collection that includes pillows, aprons, drapes and more to men and women's clothing and accessories.

AFF's model is one that is growing in prominence whether it's through a cooperative or a loose cooperative-like organization that promotes economic self-sustainability through economic means while at the same time offering other programs more broadly related to social and personal life.
