Welcome Pon – A New Scholarship Recipient

September 28, 2011

CCEdFund recently approved a scholarship for a new recipient in Phnom Penh: Pon!  She is a hard-working student who lives at A New Day Cambodia (ANDC) with five other CCEdFund scholarship recipients.  Pon came to ANDC in March 2008.  All of her siblings live at ANDC because her parents are in terrible health.  They live in a distant province (Prey Veng) and so Pon only sees them for the big holidays (Khmer New Year and Pchum Ben).  Since they don’t own any land, they work the fields of other farmers.

Pon has great dreams for the future, and even though she is sixteen and in the seventh grade, she knows that she will continue to skip grades.  In fact, Pon was nominated for a scholarship after she skipped a grade in one year during the last academic year.  CCEdFund is providing a scholarship for Pon to attend seventh grade at the Beltei school this year and we are eager to see how she excels.  Pon is also an incredibly kind student who is always chosen first as a best friend among the other children at ANDC.

Check back in as the year progresses to see how Pon is doing this year!
