2022 High School Graduates
Here is an update on our students and graduates in our higher education program. The K-12 school year ends in March, the universities end later, in May or June. All our students have managed to learn and complete their studies both online and some in-person, due to COVID restrictions. The Thai economy is opening very slowly, but our graduates have been finding jobs to support themselves and send some funds home. At the same time, they are building their networks, with hopes of finding jobs in their chosen fields.
This year, we have three high school graduates and two upcoming university grads. We have 7 graduating from 9th grade and starting high school
"Jiu" graduated from Phrao High School and is accepted and registered at Payap Nursing School in Chiang Mai. She joins 'Naan", who is finishing her first year.
