“My name is Srey Mao, and in my country it is hard to find a good job after graduating. Thanks to Children of the Mekong, I learned that I had to adapt to my environment, I learned to take initiative and to communicate and to be honest, which is not common among Cambodia’s graduates. I have been working in a big phone company in Phnom Penh for four years, and I am now in charge of all of the agents on a national scale. The achievement I am most proud of is to have been able to establish a social project in my company that sponsors underprivileged children in the Kratie province. I would like to give a chance to young people like the one Children of the Mekong gave to me ten years ago. I promised myself I would make a commitment to help others when I graduated; to have a role in my country’s development is my priority. Children of the Mekong taught me what real love is, you changed my life, and you freed me.”

Our employees based in Asia can go out into the field to train young students in the centres managed by the charity. We have accompanied a group of students in Phnom Penh for the past four years, twice a year, with a team of 6 volunteer employees. The content and form of these training courses are built around themes that are useful in the world of work, such as “project management”, “working in a team”, “acquiring communication skills” or “job interviews”.
