Progress in the time of COVID

GlobalGiving Update

Build Dreams.  Send Cambodia kids to college

 

As the Covid virus continues to spread in Phnom Penh,  schools, including the universities, remain locked down and students still study remotely. 

Two of our three scholars continue to pursue their undergraduate degrees, one in English language and literature and the other in international relations. Our students participate in their classes online only as the city remains largely locked down.  Our third student is on a recent and   involuntary pause.

The English language major is now in the first term of her fourth year of study and she is expecting to graduate in June of next year.  After that she hopes to work as an English teacher at her university and later to move to teaching English in one of Phnom Penh’s many private schools.

The International Relations major is in the final term of her third year of study and expect to graduate in 2022.  She hopes to pursue a Masters degree in International Relations after which she wants to pursue a career with either a foreign NGO or one of the multinational organizations such as UNICEF  which has  a presence in Cambodia.  She has a particular interest in working to help disadvantaged children to attend school. 

Our third student  is a nursing student. The “all hands on deck” approach to fighting the pandemic has meant that even nursing students have been called on to help in the hospitals.  She does her classes online during the daytime and works at the hospital in the evenings.  Since Sunday, July 25 she has entered a 14 day quarantine which requires that she remain isolated in the hospital because a doctor with whom she works at the hospital  has contracted Covid.

The good news is that her grades for her first year of nursing school were exceptional and she remains very highly motivated and excited about her future career as a nurse.  

Covid  has presented new challenges to all of us. We are very proud of our dedicated students who , despite unexpected challenges, continue to work hard to achieve their goals and dreams of a college degree.

The progress of these three exceptional young women are only possible because of the generous support of you, our wonderful donors.

We deeply appreciate your support. Truly these three young women are shining examples of lives changed because of your support.
