9 Novice Monks benefit from Sponsorship

Recent donations to this project have funded the sponsorship of 9 novice monks from Wat Pasa Viet for 12 months of English lessons in 2012. 3 of the 9 monks will be progressing onto their second year of study at the Mekong English Centre in Luang Prabrang. The other 6 monks will be commencing their first year of study.

Each sponsored novice was selected by the Abbot of the temple who considered the qualities of a hard working student and their disadvantaged background. The beneficiaries of the sponsorship come from families who would not be able to fund the cost of further education for their sons leaving them at a disadvantage.

English language is an important requisite for further education opening future opportunities for gainful employment. As such these funds will make a tangible difference for these monks and their families.

In addition, recent donations have been used to tile the floors of classrooms at the centre, a request from our partners. This simple improvement will create a much comfortable environment in which to learn.

Thank you very much for your support for this project.
