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.

Chhaoel Pisey

Chhaoel Pisey is 11 years old student in 4th grade at The Ascham School, located in Putang village, Romnear commune, Senmonorom district, and Mondulkiri province.

She is the youngest child in the family. Her parents have one hectare of farmland for growing rice, and raising chicken and 4 pigs.

Her parents have gathered 19 sacks of rice per year and some cashew but could not afford the family for a whole year because her parents have had to sell some rice to pay back to the fertilizers shop owner.

Moreover, her parents got low income from selling cashew so it still was inadequate to afford the needs such as clothes, uniforms, and school supplies, etc. Pisey promised that if she will be supported $10 per month she will try to study hard and she will use that money for her study material and help her family with daily expenses.

In the future, she wants to become a teacher because she wants to help all the kids in her location. Moreover, she wants to earn the money to support her family.
