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.

Chrin Marath

Chrin Marath is 15 years old, a student in 9th grade at CREDO school. If she’ll pass national exam into grade 10, she is going to study in High school. Now she lives in Angkarnh village, Metoek commune, Bakan District, Pursat Province.

Marath has three siblings. She is the youngest child of the family. Her mother passed away 11 years ago when she was baby. And her father lives far away from her in Battambang Province. Nowadays, she lives with her old aunty in Angkarnh village. Her father always sends her $15 – $20 every month. She kept those money to support her study and buy books and pens. She spends only 2,000 riels a day for the snack during study. Sometime, those money that she received from her father is not enough, so her aunty will fulfill the gab, especially, in the beginning of each academic year, she need to spend a lot of money to buy school materials and uniform. She mostly spends her free time to get the labor work from the neighbor to earn some money by herself and save it for the special need. She likes reading books. She likes Khmer and English subjects.

In the future, she wants to be a lawyer, because she wants to learn the law and regulations of Cambodia and if possible international law. And the second choice: she wants to be a teacher. Both of these jobs are her favorite jobs.
