The first CCC-sponsored student to study law has been awarded his degree.
CCC started supporting the education of Mr MS in 2003, initially helping him to attain a good standard in the English language. He was then ready to embark on a law degree course delivered in English. For seven years MS has persevered in part-time study while working as a freelance translator to support his family. More recently he has been employed by an international non-governmental organisation working to end sex trafficking in Cambodia.
As MS neared the end of his course, the university made various changes to its procedures making it harder for students in the faculty of laws to pass, prolonging the course for MS and other students. Finally, the school was forced to organise a final exit-exam and score the completed theses from students whose work they previously did not accept (or was regarded as ‘out of date’).
Mr MS wrote:
CCC started supporting me when I was single, about ten years ago. Now there are four of us. While Daddy is joining in the upfront army fighting against the social injustice of Modern Child Sex Slavery and Mommy is working as an accountant head for million-dollar projects of an NGO, our children are receiving one of the best educations in an International School in Cambodia.
Moreover, all of us are committed disciples of Jesus, and are taking His Words seriously daily. Anyway, by looking at what I currently have, I truly appreciate and value [my sponsors’] support for me. It has meant a lot and I can see that that meaning will never stop! May you all know that I have been thanking them every day.
MS graduated on 18 March 2014 and will receive his degree at an award ceremony in June.
