New sponsor from Italy and new student in Cambodia
Our new student in the project is Sea Sony, he is 20 years old, his father died in 2000 and left his mother with 7 children, 5 boys and two girls. Sony dream about a better education and better life in the future for him and his family.
His mother is a rice farmer, and she supports his dream. She sold already 4 cows out of 5 in order to send him to university in Phnom Penh. It is nearly "mission impossible" for his family to support him through 5 years of study.
He needs to have very cheap housing in Phnom Penh so he stay in the Catholic church, live there for 50 USD per year.
He started his studies in September this year in a very cheap university and he already got a job in a supermarket in the city.
I visited his village in November, met his mother and family and saw the condition of life they suffer. I promised him to do my best to help him as soon as I will have a sponsor. Told him to find a better university, the cheapest is not so well recommended and he should change to a better university as soon as he can.
We wish Sony good luck with this new opportunity in life and thanks to all the sponsors who support the project.
