Success stories

Sor Phorn Son

Hello, my name is Sor Phorn Son. I was an English teacher for the kindergarten class at GKS from 2010 through 2014. I was very glad to work for Green Umbrella. I could help the children who live in my commune by sharing my time and knowledge with them. I always had fun when teaching, because all of my students were very small but smart. I noted that many students through Green Umbrella could study English, computer, and learn other skills such as sewing and painting. This had never happened before, in this community.

As well as gaining teaching experience, I was happy to receive some incentive money to support my own studying. After high School I moved to Phnom Penh to work and attend university. I worked as a receptionist for 1 year and am now teaching English at Florida American school.
