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.

Ath Sreimom

Ath Sreimom is a 14 years old student in grade 8 at the Green Family School in Takeo province, Kirivung district, Angbrasat commune, Chong Angbrasat village.

Sreimom is the youngest sibling in her family, and has three older brothers.  Sreimom’s father owns half an acre of farm land which produces up to 700kg of rice per year, and her mother passed away many years ago, leaving the family to live in poverty.  As a result of the poverty, there is not enough money to buy food and school supplies for the children.  When Sreimom is not at school she needs to help maintain the families land and other house chores.
