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 http://tree-alliance.org/our-restaurants/romdeng.php?mm=or&sm=rd. 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.
