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

Tha Sreysrorng is 14 year old, student in grade 7th at The Milton School, which is located in Toul Prich village, Mean  Commune, Prey Chhor District, Kompong Cham  province.

Sreysrorng was born in a poor family and she has gotten five siblings including her. She is the third born in the family. They haven’t had their own farmland to produce rice and every year her parents have hired farmland from other neighbors to produce rice. Sreysrorng expressed that her parents could gather from 13 to 15 sacks of rice’s production per year. For one sack of rice contained 50kgs to 60kgs.

Sreysrorng pronouncedly confirmed that amount 8 sacks of rice were sold out to the merchantmen because her parents had needed some revenue to recompense to the landlord and to pay for the cost of rice’s fertilizers.

Even though, Sreysrorng said the revenue that her parents earned from rice’s output couldn’t cover sufficiently for things like clothes, school supplies and school uniforms. Therefore, she sometimes asked permission from school for a few days in order to find little supplementary income with her parents in order to pay for food and her schooling as well.

In the future, She wished to be a good nurse because of she prefers to treat her family and other people in her village either.
