In Andong Chros, Cambodia, household chores are viewed as ""women''s work"" but Soy Phe doesn''t see it that way. In early 2013, Soy Phe and his wife, Houl, joined a Heifer project and learned about more than just agriculture - they also received training in gender equality. These trainings inspired Soy to recalibrate his views on women and speak out against a common problem in his community: domestic violence. Now, he volunteers as a peer educator in his village and spends time each day discussing gender inequailty with men in his community. #genderequality #cambodia #empowerment #heiferinternational

Fish farming (or aquaculture) accounts for 50% of the #fish used for food around the world. We give farmers the training and tools to practice #aquaculture in a way that is #sustainable and beneficial to the #environment and natural ecosystems! #factfriday #vietnam #heiferinternational
