This is a story about the rice production in Cambodia, since it is the main product which hopes to uplift the economic situation of the poor farmer. Our soil is very adapted to growing rice so i believe that maximizing our potential to be a huge exporter of rice is not only a dream but will be a reality in the future..not only exporting to our neighboring countries but the region and the world as well. But it needs thorough research and study to adapt to the changing economic situation, demands, weather and climate of the region. By doing so, it will create job opportunites and attract local investors in cultivating our own soils through modern technonlogy and machinery.
I choose this story, hoping it will open the eyes of local and foreign investors to focus on rice production, not just start any other agricultural endeavors that are supposed to improve the lives of the people but it is proven to be effective only from the beginning and no sustainability because of unforecasted variables that destroys the production process may it be natural or artificial causes.
Upon viewing this photo story, they will see the relevance of collective rice production and the role of women in the society which are often missed out and taken for granted because of the wrong notion of being weak and “stay in the house” belief. I hope that they will look very closely and see the deeper message these photos bring.
