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.

To Be Selected

Phatsa is a 17-year-old student in 11th grade at The ASIJ School # 467 donated by American School in Japan. It is located in Chub Krom Village, Svay Leu Commune, Svay Leu District, Siem Reap Province.

Phatsa is the first child in the family. She has one younger brother and 2 younger sisters. Her mother is sick, so she can’t work and she has no father in her life. After harvesting rice, her mother plants vegetables and sells them at the market to get some money to support the family. Her mother didn’t let her come to school because she is a girl and has no money to support her to continue to study. She also needed her to help earn money to support the family but Phatsa was never absent and comes to study without money every day.

Phatsa is a student who pays attention and tries to learn. She loves to study and gets good grades. She wants to be a police officer when she grows up because she wants her community to live in a safe place and would love to earn money to support her mother.
