We have just received news of our sponsored student in Cambodia, Ly Sokha. Our Mission committee has sent $675.00 to cover a full year scholarship which includes tuition, school uniforms, books and school supplies at the University of South East Asia, for the second year. What a BARGAIN!!!
Ly Sokha is a young woman who lives in Bos Kralanh Village, Siem Reap Cambodia with her family of five. Her parents are supportive of her education and very grateful to our congregation for the scholarship. So many poor Khmer women are illiterate which leaves them disadvantaged socially and economically, including her mother. Our student will have the opportunity to grow in poise and confidence, gain an improved sense of self and gain skills, knowledge and experience that will equip her for a successful life. English language classes are required for all University students and Ly Sokha’s major is English Education. She is a good learner and presents herself well. She gets along well with other students. Her record shows that she has an excellent record of class attendance and completes all assignments and homework. She has increased her proficiency in grammar, vocabulary and writing. She has been encouraged to participate in communications and debate groups to strengthen her presentation skills in English. Siem Reap Town is the base for all foreign visitors/tourists to the historical sites of the Angkor Kingdom. As a result there are many job opportunities for Khmer people who have good English language skills. Our student is aiming for that goal thanks to our Scholarship donation.
