News from Kosal

Do you remember Kosal? This gentleman was one of our first scholars in 2017.

Kosal comes from a farmer’s family in Cambodia. He has 4 brothers and sisters. Without the support of Children of the Mekong, he would have never been able to receive a higher education.

After his stay in London, Kosal returned to Cambodia. He now works as a CAD operator for Daiho Corporation, a Japanese Construction Company.

He contacted us on the occasion of Pchum Ben, a Cambodian religious festival, where families gather to spend time together and offer food and gifts to monks.

“My family and I are fine. My new job in my hometown is going well”.

It seems that Kosal has a good influence on his family: one of his younger brothers has decided to continue his studies as an electric engineer at the same university where he studied (ITC). His younger sister too is following in the footsteps of her big brother. Kosal writes:

“Next to me is my youngest and dearest sister. She grown up a lot. She  starts 6 grade in November.”

We are delighted to see that Kosal is inspiring his younger brother and sister to continue their education. Together, we’re certain they will achieve great things. We wish them the very best!
