Tonight we had dinner with Pierre Tami while he was visiting New York en route back to Southeast Asia. Pierre is the president and director of Hagar International, which is based in Cambodia. His organization restores exploited women and children into a life of recovery.
Hagar International is interested in helping abused women in Southeast Asia by reintegrating them into self-sustaining jobs. Many women in his organization are designing handbags and other accessories. Because the products are made by rehabilitated women, each purchase provides those Cambodian women with employment and a future.
