Dreams for the Future

Rous Thavy
Rous Thavy's dream for the future

Saved from a life of slavery, every girl has different needs.  But one need is always the same.  Education. Hagar's catch-up school in Cambodia teaches two grades per year.  Once students are caught up to their age peers, they are integrated into a private school.  

Last month, students at Hagar's School shared their dreams for the future with their teachers.  It is our priveledge to share the girl's dreams with you:

  • "My dream is to be a good hair dresser and I want to run my own business so I can train young poor children, who are victims of abuse to be experts in this skill. I am happy because at Hagar I can learn these skills."      - Rous Thavy, 16 years old, Grade 1A
  • "My dream is be a senior bank manager, because I want to be a reputable person in society.  I can also help my family and those who are poor and abused like me."  -Pov Lina, 8 years old, Grade 1A
  • "My dream is to be a manager at an organization, because I want to help abused victims like me rebuild their future."  -Ny Theary, 13 years old, Grade 1A
  • "My dream is to be a doctor, because I want to cure people who are ill.  I also want to help my community since there are not many doctors there."        - Mol Sonita, 9 years old, Grade 3

We know that education can make dreams happen.  Thank you for your continued support.

Alumni Follow-Up Training for Reintegrated Women & Current Clients

Alumni Follow-Up Training in Vietnam
Alumni Follow-Up Training in Vietnam

This week Hagar held an Alumni Follow-Up Training to provide support to women that have been reintegrated into the Hanoi Community.  These women, who had been trafficked and abused, are now working full-time and supporting their children independently. Some of Hagar Vietnam's current clients also participated.

It was a special time for these women to reconnect with one another, share their successes and challenges personally and professionally, and have fun together. As you'll see from the pictures, they participated in group discussions, creative exercises, and reflected.

The 14 women that participated on Wednesday, July 3rd, said they would love to come back more often.  Now, Hagar will be offering this training twice a month.
