One of the incredible women who work for the Cambodia Charitable Trust is Sem Chrean, our Sponsored Children Manager in Cambodia (pictured here with the Minister for Education, Youth and Sport and CCT Founder Denise Arnold).
Chrean is also a teacher in the Takeo Provincial Office of Education Youth and Sport and a mum to a six-month-old baby girl.
Chrean has a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the Asia Euro University (Phnom Penh) and has attended learning and development programs at SEAMEO INNOTECH in the Philippines.
She grew up in a rural area where education is less valued and little information about study or career options.
“My current position and responsibility at CCT can help people, especially female students in the rural areas, to have the opportunity to receive higher education and make their own decisions for their future.
“My work gives me excitement and happiness when I can see our sponsored students who come from poor families can sit in the classroom with a smiling and hopeful face. They have enough study materials, new school uniforms, a bike for riding to school, money for buying food, hygiene materials to use, new clothes and shoes to wear, and some money remaining for the family needs.”
