Case Study – Dina

Dina is 13 years old and she has been attending SCAO II school in Som Roung for the past 4 years. Dina began attending SCAO when she was 9 years old because she wanted to learn English. She is a very bright and attentive student in school, and she enjoys SCAO because she gets to meet volunteers from all over the world and talk to them. In her free time Dina likes to play and sing with her friends.

Dina’s parents work in a garment factory that is close to Som Roung Village. They earn $170 a month each; however her father has had a recurring illness in his leg that has prevented him from working. Dina has three older brothers that also work to support her family. Dian is the only child that is attending school. Her parents are very proud of her achievements in school. They are sure she is going to be successful.
In the future Dina aspires to finish High School and go onto study Journalism. She hopes to be a News Reader in the future
