A CEF visit to a lovely and determined CEF student ~ Guest blog by CEF's Australian Manager

I recently went with one of our staff to visit children and their families. Several of them live in a local fishing hamlet at the mouth of the river. One of these was D. She was in good spirits doing very well at school and planning to do a hospitality training course locally when she finishes school next year so she can then study close to her family.

Over the Tet holidays she worked at a local restaurant earning good money. She enjoys earning as she then can help her mother who is very poor and has to support her children from a second marriage on her own. It was so good to see such a bright girl in difficult circumstances working so hard, having satisfaction from working, and having such clarity and determination regarding her future.
