Nak is a young woman who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship thanks to your help. This is her story:

“My name is Nak and I am from Cambodia. 

Due to love, sympathy and understanding the importance of knowledge, income, and standards of living with dignity, I want and plan to become an expert in Economic, Social and Cultural Rights within the OHCHR. The current goal for now towards human rights is boosting Women’s Right to Education in Cambodia. I believe that through education, those women will be independent and be able to access the right they are entitled to. Through knowledge they obtain, they can dare to express their voices on what they need, and contribute to their communities and societies. I understand that improving Human Right to Education will boost women’s rights directly - economic right mainly and social rights potentially. 

In order to achieve my goals as well as supporting other women in this field, I earned a bachelor degree in Law in an English language program of the Royal University of Law and Economics. Having known that higher education is needed for critical thinking and professionalism, I am pursuing a dual master degree in International and Public Law in a French program within the same university which Wedu’s funding helped me access. 

My next and progressive plan is to write a book on my personal experiences in fighting against conventional thinking or mindset undermining women since I wish to share experiences and knowledge with them, inspire them, encourage them and lift them up. And Wedu Global is a significant part of my achievements and life. I have received leadership training, mentorship and funding for my master's degree in Cambodia. Without support from Wedu, I would not be able to see how far I can be like me today.”

We want to send our deepest gratitude to you for supporting this effect and helping us by donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Scholarship. Your contribution directly supports women like Nak by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive social change. Thanks to you we have been able to raise a total of $5,400 total in online donations to contribute towards scholarships, an amount that can provide financial support to more Rising Stars this year than ever before. Thank you again so much for your donation and we look forward to sending more exciting Rising Star updates and achievements in coming months.

 

Thank you for helping our Rising Stars keep rising!

Pondchanok is a young woman who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship thanks to your help. This is her story:

“My name is Pondchanok and I am a Thai citizen. I strongly believe that teaching is the most respectable profession in this world.

From the very beginning of my childhood, I always dreamed to be a good teacher and serve my nation for the better. Mathematics always attracted me and hence I pursued my bachelor degree in Actuarial Science from Mahidol University with the support from my Thai government student loan fund. Throughout my bachelor study, I served as a private tutor to support my personal expenses.

In 2017, I accomplished my master degree in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT). This time, I got the RTG Fellowship from Thai Government. As I want to be a teacher, I wanted to continue my higher education after my master degree.

Finally, in 2018, I was accepted into the Doctoral program in Knowledge Management and Innovation Management at Bangkok University, Thailand and also as a candidate to be part of the dual degree program in Management at the University of Grenoble Alpes, France. This time, I discovered that managing funding for doctoral study is not only difficult but also a matter of luck.

I feel really lucky in this particular circumstance that I met with Wedu team in AIT during my Master study and I would like to express all of my gratitude to them for standing beside me during my critical time. This funding will not only help me to pursue my doctoral degree but also help me to develop my career as a good teacher to serve my nation.

Thank you to Wedu and my mentor from Wedu.”

Lucy, is a young woman who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship to fund her studies thanks to your help. This is her story:

“Having grown up with traditional values from a Chinese background in Indonesia, I never thought of pursuing graduate study abroad. Traditionally in my culture, a female shall marry, have children, and continue her family business. However, I believe that only education can change the destination of life and that education is the best investment.”

Lucy is a professional pharmacist from Indonesia currently pursuing her PhD in Applied Biosciences at Hokkaido University in Japan. Access to education was a real challenge for her, with financial and cultural constraints being large barriers to overcome. However, with perseverance, hard work and scholarship support, Lucy has been able to achieve her educational goals. Now as part of her research, she has uncovered the potential of bioactive compounds extracted from local medicinal plants in Indonesia for prevention and treatment of diabetes mellitus.

Lucy has been involved in numerous volunteer work including providing medical service during the Yogyakarta Earthquake in 2006. Her short term goal is to start Research Assistant work in the center of environmental health sciences. In the long term, she dreams of pursuing a professional university career and establishing a comprehensive community health center to provide medical care and sanitation education.

Thanks to your help, Wedu was able to provide Lucy with a scholarship to partially fund the final year of her PhD and help her achieve her goals.

Lucy is one of over 700 young women Wedu currently supports. We call these young women Rising Stars and support them through mentorship and funding to complete higher education and become changemakers in their communities. Each Rising Star is passionate about creating positive social change in her community and at Wedu, we believe that investing in women's leadership not only empowers women but also has a multiplier effect on improving the development of communities and countries as a whole.

We want to send our deepest gratitude to you for supporting this effect and helping us by donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Scholarship. Your contribution directly supports women like Lucy by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive social change.

Thank you for helping our Rising Stars keep rising!

Sanju, is a young woman who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship to fund her studies thanks to your help. This is her story:

“I was raised in a remote village in Nepal, where obtaining an education was difficult due to both the geographic location and the prevailing conservative mindset, which made it especially challenging for girls to pursue their education. 

In 2014, I worked with the United Nations in Liberia at the height of the global Ebola crisis - an experience that taught me how to truly care for humanity and for those in need. I am now a third year nursing student at Purbanchal University in Nepal, and wish to further my education in order to learn how to save more lives.

Around the same time that I started working towards my Bachelor’s degree, I gave birth to my daughter. Most Nepali women are encouraged to put their career and education on hold after having children. However, I was still committed to my life goals, so I took on a challenge that few people expected I would be able to face, and kept working towards my nursing degree.

The experience that I have gained as a Wedu Rising Star has made me feel more confident and empowered, and my mentor has been instrumental in helping me improve my communication, speaking, and thinking skills.

Thanks to your help, Wedu was able to provide me with a scholarship to fund the final year of my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing and achieve my dream of providing better care for patients in my community.”

Sanju is one of over 700 young women Wedu currently supports. We call these young women Rising Stars and support them through mentorship and funding to complete higher education and become changemakers in their communities. Each Rising Star is passionate about creating positive social change in her community and at Wedu, we believe that investing in women's leadership not only empowers women but also has a multiplier effect on improving the development of communities and countries as a whole.

“I am willing to make the best access of health care service to all Cambodian people, especially the poor by starting to provide them the basic information about health and any prevention.”

Sopheng, pictured above, is a 24-year-old Wedu ‘Rising Star’, selected for her leadership potential and keen desire to be a changemaker in her community. Thanks to your support, Sopheng received a scholarship from Wedu to cover her educational costs. This is her story:

“I was born in Kampong Trach, Kampot Povince in Cambodia, and attended school there. My father is a self-employed vendor, and my mother is a farmer.

I am studying to become a doctor and am specializing in neuroscience. I am pained by the fact that there are many poor people who die because of a lack of access to medical care, especially in rural areas. I hope to eventually work in these areas. I am supporting TYDA, a voluntary organization of Doctors, while waiting to formally join them soon. I have also volunteered with New Day Cambodia, which educates children from the ‘scavenging’ community.

Wedu’s leadership development and mentorship program and has given me clarity on my goals, and the confidence to pursue these. I am encouraged and motivated when meeting other Rising Stars too. My big dream is to expand access to medical care for the rural poor in my country, in a sustainable way. Thank you for supporting me with my dream!”

Sopheng is one of almost 700 women that we support at Wedu. We want to send you our deepest gratitude for supporting Rising Stars like Sopheng to achieve their dreams.

Thank you for helping our Rising Stars keep rising!
