The Mekong Delta’s Soc Trang Province is one of largest Khmer-populated provinces in southern Vietnam. Khmer ethnic people account for over 30 percent of the province’s population of 1.3 million, and because of their status, they are generally left out of government-run schools, health care and other opportunities to move out of poverty.
