The Story Behind the Store:

Wrestling with homesickness was a challenge during our migration to Australia, but it was even harder with limited English and low level of skills for employment. These limitations were a major hurdle to work and most social situations —no matter how hard we tried. This often eroded our self-confidence, and it only worsened when accompanied by abuse and neglect. Angkor Flowers & Crafts's mission is to enable wider economic participation, financial sustainability and quality of life through moral and employment support. Through training and experience, skills are established resulting in the confidence to achieve ultimate independence and self-empowerment for disadvantaged women. 

With this combination of personal experience and professional skills in both business and welfare, Sophea Jones, the founder of the organisation, came to realise that there was a need to create opportunities for migrant women. Many of these women have grown up in a culture that believes that women do not need to be educated and that their role in life is to look after the home and children. This has created a cycle of financial dependency, either on partners or welfare. In combination with neglect, abuse and family violence, these women have been robbed of choices in life and deprived of the ability to stand on their own two feet. Angkor Flowers has been established to provide these women with an opportunity to enter the workforce and create a stepping stone for future employment opportunities and choices. The business provides women from disadvantaged backgrounds with emotional support, skills development and employment opportunities so that they can blossom into a life with a greater degree of financial independence and opportunities for a better quality of life, both for themselves and their families. 

Since establishing in 2014, Sophea has presented and led many benefits of her enterprise, none of which the least have offered untold hope and fruitful labour to disadvantaged women. “There were times when I stumbled and fell, and there were times when I thought I wanted to give up but my family and my peers has always held my head up high, showing the true importance of teamwork. So I keep moving forward,” Sophea enthused. “The need of this project is becoming bigger and bigger all the time; now women from other Asian communities want to be involved and who’s to deny them that chance? At the same time, we require better business resources and outlays to accommodate our growing network of fantastic individuals who desire change.” 

“And now it is your call and you have the power to make a difference to these women’s lives….”
