Visit and donation to support education of girls from minority tribes

Today I was able to meet the son of a lady who has set up a group in Italy who meet regularly to have English lessons with her, and they the students then make donations that go towards charity.

This is the second time they have donated to CEF. Her first donation went to scholarships for three minority tribe girls near the Laos border to enable them to complete their last year of high school.

This donation will be used towards the costs of tertiary education for the most hard working of the three; the girl with the highest standard of the three girls she has helped. For a girl from a poor minority tribe family to go to university is wonderful and unusual. This means she can have a very different future to her mother and grandmother. It is very exciting what donations can do and we are very grateful for these two donations!
