You may remember I wrote a while ago asking you to consider becoming a sponsor of one of our 24 new scholarship students. The great news is that many of you decided to help change a life this year and have become new sponsors.
However, we still need five more sponsors in order to support the 24 new students in their ambition to attend university and improve their prospects.
JWOC Scholarships change lives. And you can be a part of making that change.
To help you know the difference you are able to make, two JWOC graduates, Thoum and Keang ,have written below about their experience as a JWOC scholarship student and how it has helped them and others.
My name is Thoum Lorm. I come from a small village in the forest in Banteay Meanchey Province. JWOC changed my life and I had chance study at university. I did not believe that I could study at university but JWOC gave me the power to do so.
JWOC helped me to change my life, my family, and my community. I learnt as a JWOC scholarship student general knowledge and the specific skill of teaching English as a second language. During my scholarship I helped JWOC with teaching English in the JWOC school to improve my skill. This was great experience for me because my degree is in the field of Teaching English as a Second Language.
In conclusion, JWOC is a good organization in Siem Reap, Cambodia that helps a lot of people. I wish for JWOC to grow bigger and bigger and support more scholarship students.
My name is Ms. Heam Keang . I feel that I am very lucky of my life because I got JWOC’s scholarship student since am in the first year until graduate. I am very happy to telling all of you what I did in JWOC And also what the difference a JWOC scholarship made to me.
I got scholarship in 2007 and I took Banking and Finance as my subject. During I am scholarship student I got great knowledge from JWOC day by day. As Micro-Finance’s volunteer every Sunday I was going to visit villager and collect the money and in Clean Water Project we are going on every Saturday morning to villages along the road of north Baray. When we are arrive some villager are waiting us. People are happy to get knowledge what JWOC provide, and we are completed villages one by one and improve to village to other village. This is a really good experience for me and especially I was teach to my mom and neighbor how to install, use and taking care of water filter that I got from JWOC. How we do without leaning?
I graduated on August 31, 2010, and the job I have now I think it’s nearly my goal job. I wish JWOC get more sponsor, so can have more teaching project, water project and micro finance and help more students
Sponsoring a student and changing their life costs $500 per year of their degree. This covers all their fees and books, plus all the additional life skills training offered by JWOC.
If you would like to find out more about the Scholarship Programme please visit this page on our website or reply to this email with any questions. We also have a FAQs page to answer some the most common questions.
If you have decided to help JWOC change lives you can make your donation via our donate now page. You can donate online or by check, marking your donation ‘scholarship’. We ask you make a 4 year commitment to your student. If you are able to send sponsorship for the full four years that is wonderful, but don’t worry if not, you can donate for each year individually. Please make your donation before 31st August to make sure we can match you with a student for this coming academic year.
I look forward to welcoming you as a new sponsor and introducing you to your student in September!
Very best wishes,
JWOC Managing Director
