I enjoyed the read and hope this project becomes a great success to the people of this small village. I am also happy to learn that the Nippon Foundation has donated time, money and efforts in teaching the Cambodian villages new pottery skills. I have in the past purchased many prized pieces of Cambodian and Thai pottery. They are eve so beautiful and truly enhance the decor of my home here in Salt Lake City. I pray for the success and future of these people and wish them well.
