Mao Sreylin

Mao Sreylin is an 8 year- old student in Grade 3 at The Lotus School in Prek Dambouk Village, Kampong Chamlorng Commune, Khsach Kandal District, Kandal Province.

There are four members in the family. She is the first daughter in the family. She has one brother. Her parents have some land for growing rice. However, this land can hardly support the family’s daily needs. Thus, they have to borrow money from their neighbors to buy rice and other food to feed the family. Because of this difficult situation, Sreylin must help with the housework and look after her younger brother when her mother goes to field. That is why she is often absent from school.
