In 2012, Voeut became one of our first scholarship students. Voeut, like all our scholarship students, is from Kralanh, and moved to Siem Reap in order to continue his studies at university and the PEPY Empowering Youth Learning Center.
Voeut is currently in his third year of studies at Build Bright University, where he is working towards a degree in Information and Technology. During his first and second years at university, Voeut spent time developing soft skills by regularly attending lessons run by PEPY Empowering Youth in the Learning Center. These skills, such as communication and English, helped Voeut to secure full-time employment at Lo Scoiattolo Onlus where he teaches ICT. Voeut’s students are very impressed by his knowledge and teaching ability, noting how quickly they have seen an improvement in their own understanding. Although he is a third year student, and therefore no longer regularly attends lessons at the Learning Center, Voeut still continues to meet with PEPY Empowering Youth staff on a regular basis for support and guidance.
Voeut’s family is very proud of all that he has achieved so far, and they are grateful to PEPY Empowering Youth for supporting him. Voeut is a fantastic role model for his community and fellow scholarship students; In the future, he hopes to encourage more children from Kralanh to continue their education as he has. We are confident that Voeut will go on to fulfill this dream, as well as that of becoming an IT manager at an NGO or hotel. Everyone at PEPY Empowering Youth is very proud of his accomplishments!
