Meet Chhay Meeas a Restaurant student at Sala Bai School. She hopes to one day visit Paris and her favourite food is amok, a traditional steamed fish curry with galangal, lemongrass, coconut milk and chilis.
As a student at Sala Bai, she hopes to one day support her family with a job at one of the hotels or restaurants in Siem Reap. A non-profit school, Sala Bai fights poverty and human trafficking by providing free vocational training and employment in hospitality to young adults from the poorest area of Cambodia.
Covid-19 has left Sala Bai graduates unemployed and the families who depend on them without income.
