Chiieng Mey & Morn
Chiieng Mey, a housekeeping student and Morn, a restaurant student, are both looking back on their experience in Sala Baï. From the start of school in September 2013 to their graduation at the end of July 2014, a whole new world opened up to them. At the dawn of their new life, these two students relate how they lived this training year.
“At 13, I had to stop school because my parents couldn’t afford it anymore. I worked in the fields and as a construction worker for several years. Studying at Sala Bai changed my life. I now work as a Patisserie chef and make over 300$/month. Thanks to me, my little brother can go to school. I am also saving some money, I want to open my own bakery one day!”’
