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.
