CAMBODIA: ONE EGG FOR TWO PEOPLE
For a decade, the lives of young Cambodian women were transformed by jobs in the textile industry. But the global economic crisis changed all that, threatening to undo ten years of progress.
GUYANA: MIGRATION THREATENS HEALTHCARE
Who can resist the lure of better pay -- much better pay -- in a richer country? That is the temptation nurses all over the world face today. As developed countries like the US seduce them with dollars, their home countries are deprived of their skills. We take you to Guyana in the Caribbean.
HONG KONG: CHANGING PERCEPTIONS ABOUT DISABILITIES
For years, people with disabilities have been seen as a burden to society -- as helpless people incapable of caring for themselves, let alone supporting a family. But this is beginning to change. In Hong Kong, one man, determined to overcome discrimination, is changing the way society views disabilities.
