Apart from the founder, all the staff at Ammo is Khmer, coming from disadvantaged backgrounds. To lift them out of their conditions and provide them with employment, Ammo offers to these young Cambodians apprenticeship training in design and production of jewellery. As part of the AMMO ethos, staff are supported to design their own jewellery, and these special pieces are on sale at the shop, with 35% proceeds going directly to the artisan.
