Alex is a student at Seattle Pacific University and is pursuing Global Development Studies. His gallery of photographs showcase Cambodian entrepreneurs and their hopeful ventures.
Alex traveled to Cambodia with World Vision ACT:S in June of 2012. He traveled with a group of other college students and their task was to get inspired by what they saw and to collect stories. They traveled around visiting different micro-finance clients and listening to their stories. Each of the clients had taken a loan from Vision Fund (World Visions Micro-fiance organization and used the loan to start a business. These $50-$250 loans have a massive impact on the families that receive them. These loans have a much larger impact than increasing revenue elimination poverty and creating businesses. They can help prevent people from being subjected to human trafficking and slave labor and simply elimination desperation, The emphasis on the ration between micro-finance and human trafficking flows out of the SPU’s campaign against human trafficking All the proceeds from the sales of this art will go towards supporting a micro- loan in Cambodia through World Vision Micro. If you would like to learn more about Micro-fiance and or human trafficking and get involved please contact Alex directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Alex’s art will be on display at the Q through the months of November and December 2012. Please feel free to drop by to experience his work firsthand.
