Building Dreams- Our student roster is growing !

Building Dreams- Our  student roster is growing !

For nearly 15 years, our   programs, such as our AIDS Patient Family Support Program and our Rural Assistance Program have  focused on protecting   children from trafficking and victimization by empowering them with education. Education  combined with a stable home environment  will allow them to break the cycle of inherited poverty. Our strong focus on education enabled many  children to complete middle school, high school and now, thanks to this program, have the opportunity to go to  college.

The potential long term impact of these efforts is immense for these students. It is our hope that this opportunity to access  a college education  will be the catalyst to move these students to  move solidly to the middle class and  a professional level lifestyle. 

Our students

At the present we have retained all of the six initial students who began courses last year . They have now completed their first year and are enrolled in  their second year course of study.

Of the universe of eleven possible  candidates that  we had identified from our Rural Assistance Program  in summer 2013 , four successfully completed  the application and interview  process  and were viewed to be ready to be able to make a  successful transition  from rural family life to independent living in the capital city and maintain  their desired course of studies. One additional candidate withdrew  from consideration as her parents were able to secure a place for her at Christian mission college.

Classes for the students have started in October and November.

In addition to the students from our Rural Assistance Program, we had identified 2  students from our Aids Patient Family Support Program ( FSP) , who have now successfully begun classes . Of the four students  coming from the FSP, two are AIDS orphans, and two themselves have AIDS.

This brings our  2013  student roster up to a total of 12 students currently enrolled in colleges in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city.

For all of these students, your support is vital to help these young students to achieve their dreams of completing a college education.

Thank you for your continued support.
