Annual Visits to Partners 2013

Somalin Showing Off Her Certificate
Somalin Showing Off Her Certificate

Hello CCEdFund Family!

Our apologies for a bit of delay with this report but we have been doing our annual partner visits and since we are wrapping the up, we wanted to share some highlights and some pictures! Jessica Garber, one of our longest-serving volunteers/leaders, has been in Cambodia for 5 weeks and visited our partner schools, partner children's centers, families, and a few nominated students. We are thrilled to share some of her notes on a few of our students:

Somalin - Grade 3, Siem Reap
"Somalin is doing very well. She is a happy, growing big sister who is very excited to welcome her new baby brother in a few months. Her English comprehension and speaking skills are excellent, as she was able to maintain a conversation and relate stories to me over a 10 minute period with ease. Her ability to write Khmer very clear and fluent, and she was able to give me a number of demonstrations of her writing and reading ability through reading a short story and writing a couple sentences that her father made only minor corrections to. She scored very well in her reading, writing and speaking skills in English, and her Khmer classes are going well as well. So the dual enrollment in both New York School and ISSR appear to be serving her needs very well."

Khouch, Sreyheng, Channa, & Tony - Phnom Penh, Cambodia
"I was able to spend time with Sreyheng, Tony, Channa, and Kouch. Each of them likes their current schools and wishes to continue in their studies. Kouch really likes studying at ICS International School and would like to finish her schooling there before going to university." These girls are attending different partner schools in Phnom Penh and are in middle or high school. Their academic records show continued progress and determination to complete their studies.

We will keep you posted as we evaluate nominated students and work with partner schools to find the best fits for their goals and abilities.

Have a wonderful rest of the summer! It is almost back to school time....

Warm regards,
Carrie and Jennifer
