Girls Be Ambitious

A program that enables girls who are unable to go to school due conditions of poverty to attend one of our rural schools and receive an education instead of having to work in the fields, do chores at home or take care of siblings.

Lim Reurn

Lim Reurn is a 9-year-old student in 4rd grade at The Tokyo-West Rotary Club in Peam Khvav village, Dom Bokroung commune, Phnom Srouch District, Kampong Speu Province.

Reurn has five siblings, three sister and two brothers, and she is forth child in family. Her father works as mango harvester who earns about $150 per month but it is not permanent income, it is according to mango seasons. Her mother stays at home. This family owns a half of one hectare of farmland but the productivity of their land is low because they don’t have enough money to buy fertilizer and there is limited water. So the yield is about 800kg of rice every year. Reurn has to help her mother to do housework every day. So those works has kept her away from school frequently.
