This is her story

Thank you Thàu Thi Mỷ

My name is Thàu Thi Mỷ and I spend most of my time working in the field. Although I would still like to continue attending classes, I had to give up studying when I was a girl to help my family to work the land. Now I am married and I have a four year-old son. Perhaps in the future I will manage to go back to school, but at the moment my financial situation does not allow me to do this. Having a better education would allow me to obtain a good job and, of course, a better-paid one. I also work on the land growing rice and vegetables. This has always been my job and nowadays it continues to be so. Feeding my family and myself depends completely on these activities.

Thank you Thàu Thi Mỷ
