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.

Eang Makara was born on October 20, 2006 in Veal Rom Pok Village. She is in the 4 the grade. Makara has 2 siblings and she is second in the family. Her farther name is Mr. Eang Chick and her mother name is Chean Rorn, both of them are farmers. The family owns 1.5 hectare of farm land; in which they can earn up to $200 a year in rice production. As this is not enough to support the family’s needs. Makara’s farther commonly has to go on trips to be a slave. He has to carry the sack of cement. A day he can earn $4. 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, Makara commonly has to miss school to stay home and help to care for her siblings or help in the rice field and other housework.
