At Golden Futures, we have a policy that we never have a young person start a course that we can't afford for them to finish. We hold the money in our reserves, in trust essentially for the young person we are supporting. This is a luxury we have as an organisation, but one that sadly isn't always possible for individuals. When Linda's course changed length and cost midway through, her sponsor was not able to keep supporting her to the end. Luckily, we were able to step in, and provide the funding for the final years of Linda's course.
Below are the pictures of Linda graduating with her Associate degree - she will continue to study for another year to reach the Bachelor's degree. She has already worked part-time as a pharmacist, making a positive contribution to Cambodian society. If things had been different, her potential could have been wasted. It's thanks to our supporters, her sponsor, and NFC, that it wasn't.
I'll finish with Linda's words: "I will try the best for my bachelor degree even though it is sometimes a little difficult, but I can do it. Many thanks for always staying beside me and helping."
