Pu Tru Village, Mondulkiri, Cambodia, February 2019: In the small village of Pu Tru, in the North East of Cambodia, Nhek Ren has big dreams for the future of her two daughters.

“When I was young, I didn’t receive education, so I want my daughters to go to school so they can have good jobs. They could work in another country. I don’t want them to be farmers like me,” said the 21-year-old mother while her daughters were busy playing with a puppy outside.

Phum Krouch Village, Prey Veng, Cambodia, January 2019: 
It is a beautiful sunny day in the village of Phum Krouch, 70km away from Cambodia’s capital city Phnom Penh. From a distance, water buffalos and cows are grazing among the rice fields, and palm trees are rising from the tall grass. Phum Krouch community preschool is hidden on the side of a small dusty road. It is difficult to find the preschool without a local guide. Every morning, when the sun rises, Seng Noeun, a community preschool teacher, arrives at school with a full cart of students.
