Racing for the finish line !

Please mark your calendar: Little by Little Donor Donor Match Campaign April 4-8 

 

In this update, we are so pleased and proud to say that three of our scholars are fast approaching the “ finish line” in pursuit of their goal of a college education.  Today we will spotlight two  of our three students who work full time at our dance and art school, Champey Academy, handling accounting, reporting and other administrative tasks.

Ms. S.P., now 26 years old,  has begun her final term of study in  her  fourth year of her Bachelor’s degree program in English language and she is on track to graduate in August

After graduation,  Ms. S. P. ,who currently works full time while at  Champey Academy, will begin to work  half time  as she seeks a job as an English teacher to gain teaching experience.  Her  near term goal is to be able to teach half time and work half time.  Ms.S.P. is  hoping to continue her education and work towards a Masters Degree.  During Covid, Ms. S.P, had, on her own initiative ,  begun to teach English to  some of the Champey students.

Ms.  SM., now 23 years old, is also in her fourth and final year of her Bachelor’s degree program for International Relations.   She now expects to complete the program of formal study in August , after which she will be required to complete a six month internship before receiving her degree. Ms. SM, too, is  hoping to pursue a Masters Degree in support of  her long term career goal, to work for an organization which supports education for disadvantaged children in Cambodia.

Our third student, Ms. SW is now 21 and she is  in the final year of her three year Associates program in nursing and she is on track to finish her program in November of this year, after which she hopes to eventually pursue a Bachelors degree in nursing abroad.

It is worth mentioning that these three   students have  managed to keep on track despite classes being switched back and forth from  remote learning during COVID, as well as unexpected  schedule changes and other challenges. With eyes on the prize, these three remarkable young women are shining examples of the impact that education can have in breaking the cycle of inherited poverty. These lives are being  forever changed  after receiving  the opportunity  to  explore and develop  their potential.

Despite the  personal tragedy and hardship that  each of these young women experienced during childhood, they  have remained in school, excelled in their studies and  they are now on the very edge of realizing their life long dream of achieving a college education and the ability to step into a new life.

Your support makes this possible.

None of this would have been possible without the support of  you, our generous donors, for which we are deeply  thankful. Not only did your donations help us to support these three young women during   perilous times of great hardship during their childhood, but your support now has  empowered  these three young women to break the cycle of inherited poverty by seeing the  possibility of a different world and working, bit by bit  towards their goals.

We hope you will join our celebration by participating in GlobalGivings Little by Little Campaign Apriol 4 - April 8 

GlobalGiving will host its “ Little by Little” matching fund event from  April 4 through April 8, offering a 50% match ( $25)  on donations up to $ 50 per each individual, unique donor.  We are hopeful that you will continue to support the efforts of Kasumisou Foundation in this or one of our other programs as a way of expressing your appreciation and celebrating  the achievements of these remarkable young women. 

We are deeply thankful!
