Yesterday was another great day. We had good meetings with people who we have been or would like to work with here in Cambodia to strengthen the work we do and collaborate on common goals.
First, we met with the Silas Everett and Lim Siv Hong at The Asia Foundation. Part of their work has a similar program as CASF to educate university level young women. To find out more about The Asia Foundation go to http://asiafoundation.org/country/overview/cambodia.
Later, we met with Sister Luise Ahrens who runs the English Language Support Unit at RUPP (Royal University of Phnom Penh). Sister Luise is one of the most remarkable people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I could have sat and talked with her all day as she told us stories of her time in Cambodia. She arrived in 1991 to help rebuild RUPP after it was intentionally decimated by the Khmer Rouge in the mid 70's. She has been here ever since and has been integral to the rebuilding of the education system in Cambodia.
