Online learning can be ok
University tuition bills all arrived this month along with the first term grades. So far everyone has excelled and we are delighted to continue investing in their futures.
The high school team took a short break to enjoy Halloween preparations, but they were back at their computers at 8 am for online classes.
Naan is still studying nursing from early morning until late evening but has been a great help with the colds and fevers that come with the change in the weather. (It does get chilly at night this time of year.)
Joy came home for a mid-term break from her senior year at Rajabhat university to help her mother bring in the rice crop.
Tanqua, now in her fourth year of nursing school was initiated into the National Nursing Association
It was a delight to hear from Nat Danai, who is working in Cambodia as a computer tech for a casino. He is hoping that the cruise industry starts to recover and he can pursue his dream of working around the world.
Akanit started her second year working at the Jesuit Refugee Service. It's based in Bangkok, but with COVID office closures, we have enjoyed having her nearby in Chiang Mai.
She has started to repay back into our higher education fund while saving for grad school. She started researching master's programs in social work and just sent us a spreadsheet with her top three choices - all in Europe. We are hoping for a scholarship.
Thank you all for continuing to invest in our students! We have 10 in university and 16 in high school right now, all made possible from your support.
P.S. #GivingTuesday is almost here. We would greatly appreciate your support of our Harnessing the Power of the Sun campaign on November 30.
