Samatoa was founded in Cambodia in 2003 on the three pillars of sustainable development : economic efficiency, social equity and protection of the environment.
Following strict ethical practices which, as symbolism of the lotus, are purification of the body, the speech and the spirit.
It is after numerous experiments and so many researches in remote villages, that Samatoa revived in Cambodia a forgotten expertise.
It is not the slightest pride of Samatoa to move closer thereby, by fair trade, the world of the richest in that of the poorest, and allow training, emancipation and international recognition of the latter. To make it possible to every man and in this case for vulnerable women to overcome their condition, to rise and to accomplish, “just like the lotus flower grows tall and flourishes above the muddy water.”
