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.

Bou Sreyneang

Bou Sreyneang is a 19 year- old student in Grade 10 at The Margaret & Derek Jerram School in Kraul Chi Village, Kraul Chi Commune, Boribo District, Kampong Chhnang Province.

Sreyneang is the eldest of her siblings, and her mother is the main caregiver, as her parents got divorced many years ago, and the father no longer kept in contact with the family. The children now live in small house with their mother and own a small amount of land that allows for planting various vegetables such as eggplants, papayas and pumpkins. However, this small amount of land cannot support the family for all their daily needs, thus, they have to borrow money from their neighbors to buy food for the family.
