By Athena Pond - Founder and Director of Aftercare
Things at the Cambodia TLC continue to grow in exciting new ways! I recently returned from five weeks in Cambodia where I had the privilege of spending time with the amazing survivors in our program. Everyone is energized about their school and training and I am so proud of how hard everyone is working. We have several girls in private school, working on their high school educations, who were so proud to show me their test scores and show me some of their work. Two girls are now in art school, discovering their talent and creativity, and other girls are studying English and computers. There are constant extra curricular activities going on thanks to a wonderful intern who came to teach the girls fun new skills, and we took an amazing trip to the beach to celebrate a National Holiday.
Our Clinical Director continues to make huge strides in excellence improving our therapy program and the health of the girls, and our staff is learning and growing all the time. We have had a year filled with professional interns and volunteers and even a research project which brought us back together with some of our graduates. That was an incredible day where I was able to hear from girls who's lives we had poured into. They are thriving and building lives for themselves while striving for new dreams. It was the best feeling and I felt so much pride for them and all they have accomplished and overcome.
