Introduction – 23rd May 2016

Thorn Sreyneth is sponsored by Rob from England for US$50 per month.

Sreyneth, is nine years of age, born in  April 2007. She is the eldest of four siblings. Her parents both toil as low paid construction workers. In the evenings, her grandmother is tasked with preparing food for the whole family.

Every week day, Sreyneth makes the trip to the Choice centre in the Choice water truck. She studies in grade 2 at government school.

Much of her free time is spent washing clothes for her family members. Despite her devotion to helping at home, she still finds time for running, reading and drawing.

A girl who has deep respect for her teachers, Sreyneth’s aspiration

is to follow in their footsteps. She may indeed be a Choice English teacher in years to come.

Update – 11th August 2017

Sreyneth is a happy and quiet girl but she becomes more confident and talkative now. Her grandparents brought her to live in other province and she missed the class about a week. Luckily her grandparents decided to come back to the village and let her come back to class . Finally, she still managed to pass her English exam.
