Heourn dreams of one day becoming a teacher and seeing his three sisters educated.
But times are tough for the 14-year-old and his family in Cambodia. His parents don’t have secure work and can’t afford medical care, and he feels scared when his cramped family home shakes in the wind. Heourn works hard to help his family get by – feeding cows, carrying water, and labouring in the field.
“I really like going to school. I have lots of friends and fun there,” Heourn says.
“I don’t go there regularly. I need to look after my sisters and cook for them when my mum and dad are out finding food. I also help my mum earn money and get food.”
