Bunthon was born on 05 April 1999 and joined our Scholarship program in November 2014 when she was in grade 8. She graduated from Monivong High School in 2019 and is currently in her fourth year at Build Bright University in Battambang, with a major in Accounting. She has a job working in the office of NKL, a company that supplies clean water to homes in 6 districts. Bunthon lives in the Cambodian Village Fund Dormitory with the other college girls. Her family is very poor because her mother is a widow and has been ill. Her family owns no land for farming. Bunthon's mother works but gets little money to support the family. The family's financial situation makes it difficult to buy study materials for Bunthon. In her application for the Scholarship program Bunthon said, "I would like to get a good education, but my family doesn’t have enough money to support my studies. I hope you will help me. I don’t want to give up my studies."
