Sally Hetherington OAM is the founder and CEO of Human and Hope Association Incorporated (Australia). At the age of 25, Sally bought a one-way ticket to Siem Reap, Cambodia, with the goal of helping people living in poverty. A few months into her journey in Cambodia, Sally realized that the sustainable development of a community cannot be achieved through the involvement of short-term foreign volunteers. The realization led Sally to transform a community center that was reliant on foreign volunteers, into a locally run NGO registered organization - Human and Hope Association (Cambodia).
