February 20, 2016

Good Morning : )

I feel like a broken record, yesterday was another great day.  This has been a wonderful trip full of learning and deeper understanding.  In fact I will be brief today as we are heading off on a boat trip on the Mekong River with our students soon.

We had a meeting a RUPP in the morning with the Director of Community Development Studies. This is a new program in its second year.  Community Development is a big need in Cambodia as the country itself develops and this program shows a lot of promise for the students in our program.

In the afternoon I felt a bit like Harry Potter as we went to the Ministry.  Specifically, the Ministry of Education where we met with the Secretary of State (yes, we are a big deal ; ).  He was a very kind man who helped us gain a better grasp of the Cambodia 2030 goals for education and how we can help support those goals.

Finally, we had dinner at Romdeng-click here to learn more  This restaurant is part of Friends International which works to train street kids for employment.  I had a very delicious Cambodian specialty fish amok.

I am so very thankful for all of the great connections we've made in Cambodia to move our work in support of education forward.
