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.

Huy Rina

Huy Rina is a 16 years old student in 9th grade at The IROHA School #470, which is located in O Svay village, O Svay commune, Thalaborivath district, and Stung Treng province.

Rina was born in a poor family and she has gotten three siblings including her. She is the third born in the family. They have owned one hectare of farmland which produced 1 ton and 700 kilograms of rice’s output per year. Rina pronouncedly confirmed that the amount one ton of those rice’s outputs was sold out to the merchantmen because her parents needed some revenues to reserve for daily food, ailment’s treatment and also paid back to shop owner for the cost of fertilizers.

Even though, Rina said that the revenue that her parents earned from rice’s output wasn’t sufficiently covered for her needs as such as clothes, stationery supplies and school uniforms. Therefore, she sometimes asked permission from school for a few days in order to work and find little revenue with her parents in order to pay for daily food and her schooling as well.

For her future goal, she wishes to become a specialized teacher of mathematic, history and English language because she prefers to teach these subjects to the kids of a next generation.
