Choy Ratana, 13 years old and in grade 6. He is living with his mother, grandmother and his nine siblings. The family has no farm land, just the house that was left to them by his step-father.
Ratana needs a bike cycle to go to school and needs some cash to support his study. We have been told by his mother and the officer of the District Social Affairs that because of his family difficulties and the distance to school he wants to quit his study.
