Vong Touch, 16, plays with his classmates during their break at Pang Rolim Secondary School.
Touch and his family are originally from Prey Veng province, in the south of Cambodia. In 2013, two years after Touch’s father passed away, his family was forced to move out of their home because of a debt they could not pay off. His mother, Path Nuon, had borrowed around $2,000 from a neighbour to pay for medical treatment when Touch’s father got sick and had to be hospitalized for about two months.
