ASIA

Asia: Contrasts Are Only the Beginning

 

Asia is the world’s largest and most populous continent, covering about 30% of Earth’s total land area. Asia is notable for not only its overall size and population but its dense as well as barely populated regions within the continent of 4.4 [?] billion people. Asia has exhibited economic as well as population growth during the 20th century, but overall population growth has since fallen to world average levels. Given its size and diversity, the concept of Asia may actually have more to do with human than physical geography. Asia varies greatly across its regions with regard to ethnic groups, cultures, environments, economics, historical ties and government systems.

Cambodia: Matthew & Melissa Stock

Matthew and Melissa Stock moved to Siem Reap, Cambodia, in 2013. They served with Bloom Asia as General Managers for Blossom Café & Training Centre for five years. In 2018, they moved to Phnom Penh to volunteer with Agape International Missions (AIM) for four years. As of 2022, they are stepping into anti-trafficking ministries in Cambodia on a broader scale, working with leaders of multiple anti-trafficking organizations to connect them with resources, troubleshoot and brainstorm, and offer support. They help develop and strategize organizational policies, procedures, and best practices. They also mentor national Cambodian leaders and cultivate leadership skills among Cambodians who provide human services, such as residential care and mentorship for victims of trafficking or those who have otherwise been disenfranchised from society.
