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.

They have two hectares of rice fields which has produced 2,000 kg of rice per year. Furthermore, this is only the ideal output because they need to barter for fertilizer and other expenditures during the farming process, but the family still lives in the poverty. Her parents have not enough food or money to buy school supplies for the children. Therefore, Koemleng needs to help her mother housework when she has free time to study.
