Four sponsored monks progressing in their studies

Four Novice monks sponsored by donations through the GVI Charitable Trust – Somphone, Boun, Khak and Khamsan have been studying at Mekong English Centre for the past 6 – 8 months.

These 4 Novices are noticeably diligent students at the Monk School – the Secondary School which they attend and which GVI volunteers and the Manager of the project teach at. They are more vocal in class and have often asked questions during and after class. This change I believe has come about due to the increased confidence they have in speaking English. The daily lessons they attend at MEC have been a large part of this development.

They are very grateful for the support they are receiving and are showing this gratitude by full attendance and participation in all of their English classes.
