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.

Prum Marineth

Prum Marineth is a 9 year- old in Grade 4 at The Shintoshin Rotary and Speros (Hawaii) School in Pal Hal Village, Rik Reay Commune, Rovieng District, Preah Vihear Province.

There are five members in the family and she is the second daughter in the family. She has two siblings: a sister and a brother. Her poor family earns a living by doing farm work on 500 m2 of farmland, but their yearly harvest cannot cover their needs throughout the year. In addition to farm work, her mother is a worker: clearing up grass and doing other farm work that neighbors hire her to do. Sometimes Marineth helps her mother to do house work and looks after her brother when her mother is away.
