Artisan Update: Sok Chan

Sok Chan lives in Battambang, Cambodia.  She is a single mother and is bound to a wheelchair, but she does not let these challenges keep her from trying to live a happy and productive life.  Ever since she was given the opportunity to sew wallets and purses for Elevita, Sok Chan has been able to afford the luxury of a little recreational activity.  Now she is the leader of a Women's Wheelchair Basketball Team!  If a picture is worth a thousand words, about six-thousand words are presented here as snapshots of Sok Chan's life:

Elevita is pleased to help this optimistic and industrious woman by selling her products online.  If you are interested in supporting Sok Chan by purchasing some of her beautiful and unique gifts, please visit
