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.

Minh Phary

Minh Phary was born on 09, May, 2006 in Svay Chek village, Svay Chek Commune, Romdoul District, Svay Rieng province. She is in the 8th grade at The Svay Chek Secondary School, which is located in Anlong Spean village, Svay Chek Commune, Romdoul District, Svay Rieng province.

Phary has 3 siblings and she is the Second in the family. Her father‘s name is   Mr. Noun Samon and her mother name is Kong Mom, both of them are farmers. The family owns one hectare of farm land; in which they can earn up to $300 a year in rice production. As this is not enough to support the family’s needs, Phary’s father commonly has to work for others. He has to dig the land put to the car. One day they can earn $4 or $5. This means, that even with this additional income, the parents do not have enough money to support the family and their children’s everyday needs. As a result, Phary commonly has to come late to school to help her siblings or help in the rice field and other housework.

Phary’s goal wanted to be a Teacher; she thinks that become a Teacher could help her family to be better and improve her life.
