Samnang is in a poor family. He lives in the lowest income family in the community. His older sister collects only a little rice crop from their small piece of land, which is not enough to eat for 12 months.
Upon admission, Samnang had poor hygiene and did not eat nutritional food.
Samnang needs support for his education because the family hardly makes enough money for their basic needs. Every day he lives with his disabled mother and his older sister because his father left home five years ago after the parents got divorced.
