Sreinoch comes from a very poor family. Her father was injured when Sreinoch was 3, when a tree fell on him. He is bedridden and can’t work or even feed himself. Sreinoch’s mother and sisters take care of him. Sreinoch’s mother, who also has health problems, is the sole breadwinner for the family, earning money farming a small rice field and selling food along the road. Sreinoch ranked 4th out of 48 students in her 12th grade class. She wants to go to university so she can get a good job and support her family. but she didn’t have enough money. With financial support from the Gendercide Awareness Project and the Cambodian Village Fund, Sreinoch is now a freshman studying accounting at the University of Battambang.
