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.

Bun Chanthol

Bun Chanthorn is an 11 year olds student in 4th grade at The Vasaskolan School in Angbaksey village, CheangTorng commune, Tramkak district Takeo province.

Chanthorn has three siblings: two brothers and two sisters. She is the second child in the family. Her parents are farmers but the rice harvest is not enough to feed their family. Besides working on his or her own farm, her parents are day labor in village. They can earn $ 5 per day from harvesting rice, clearing grass, and making fence. Unfortunately, this work is not regular for Chanthorn’s parents. Sometimes Chantorn and her friends in the village often go to catch fish at the pond, which they use to cook for their daily meal and sell them to the villagers.
