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.

Dorn Saboeurn

Saboeurn is an 11-year-old student who is attending in 4th grade at Torn Lorng Le School in O’ Chum district of Ratanakiri province.

Saboeurn is an ethnic minority student who has only one brother and no any sister. She is the second kid in the family. Her parents are farmers and they have a small rice field for sowing rice. Every year, her parents harvest about 400kilograms in per year and for the amount of that rice is not sufficient to feed her family for a whole year so that besides producing rice her parents must work as a cashew picker and get earnings about 5 US dollars for each one in per day, Saboeurn said.

In the future, Saboeurn wants to be a Khmer teacher because her favorite subject is Khmer literature that’s why she wants to share her Khmer knowledge to kids of next generation. Anyway, she doesn’t want to be a farmer like her parents.
