A student I spoke with at Savong's School Cambodia

Chanthou Thy is one of the students I spoke with at Savong’s School this month. A bright student (he scored 76% in recent his recent English exam) he is hoping to go to university. Born in the late 1990s, he seemed to me to be a generation removed from Savong’s generation, even if less than 15 years separate these two. Where Savong grew up in the years of poverty, before democracy was introduced to Cambodia, Chanthou Thy has grown up in a period of stability. And where Savong has built a school to serve rural students, Chanthou Thy is studying at the school (and at the local High School in Bakong). He has more assistance to reach his potential.
