A long journey to success

It is  and has been a considerable challenge to report on the very slow moving process of completing an education. There is not a lot of excitement along the way, but rather the slow rhythm  of  making progress.

But, this summer we are celebrating!  Two truly exceptional young women in our Kasumisou Scholars/Build Dreams program will mark the successful completion of their undergraduate studies and will receive their Bachelor’s degrees from local universities in Phnom Penh. 

Both of these young women have been with us since they were toddlers.  One of them is now 26 years old and the other is now 23 years old.  Both of them lost a parent to AIDS and throughout most of their childhoods their families received support through our AIDS Patients Family Support Program.   

One of them will receive her degree in English language and literature and her dream is eventually to be a professor of English.  To achieve that dream she will need to complete graduate studies in English and get some experience as a teacher of English.  She currently works in the office at our Champey Academy of Arts school of traditional arts in Phnom Penh and, in addition to her regular office duties at our school, she volunteers in her spare time there to teach English to a few students and one of our dance teachers.  She plans to continue working full time at Champey Academy before eventually pursuing a Master’s degree in English.  The other woman, who also works in the office at Champey Academy, will complete her studies in August for a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations.  She plans to continue working part time at Champey Academy while pursuing her Master’s Degree.  Her dream is to work for an NGO or international organization in the field of education with a specific goal of helping disadvantaged Cambodian youngsters to complete their educations.  

We are very proud of the accomplishment of both of these young women and expect great things from them as they proceed further in their educations and their chosen career fields.

It has been the steadfast support of you, our generous donors who have made the transformation of these two young women possible. Your belief and generosity has forever changed their life path.

We are deeply grateful. On behalf of these young women, please accept our heart felt thanks.
