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.

Van Srey To

Van Srey To is 10 years old student in the 5th grade at The Kirivorn School#90, which is located in Kirivorn village, Steung Chhay commune, Kampong Sela district and Preah Sihanouk province.

There are five members in Srey To’s family such as her parents, one son, and two daughters including Srey To who is the youngest daughter in the family. Currently, Srey To’s parents do not own any farmland and her family’s living conditions heavily based on her father’s profit from cutting down the small trees to make handles of knives, handles of hoes, handles of spades, and many varied tools.  Her father earns from $5 to $6 per day from his job but her father’s benefit still insufficiently support in her whole family.

Srey To’s mother is a housewife. She takes care of her children and raises hens and a few pigs at home with her older sisters.  Srey To frequently helps her mother’s housework when she comes back from school.

In the future objective, Srey To wants to become a bank employee because she thinks that the bank is very standardized to provide good benefit to the staffs as well as to improve her better life.
