Continued success for Students in Cambodia's Vocational Training Project
CAMBODIA. Khmer Times (03 January 2024) - A young man from a poor family in Stong district, Kampong Thom province, is very happy to continue his technical education at the Preah Kossomak Polytechnic Institute in Phnom Penh for free and to receive a grant from the Royal Government under the National Project on Vocational and Technical Training for Young People from Poor and Vulnerable Families set by the head of government.
As a poor student, Khea Sokun said that this course can improve the lives of poor families and provide clear skills and full ability to find a better job with a decent salary that can help the family and the country.
In addition, young people from this poor family thanked the government leaders for providing opportunities for them and other vulnerable families to attend free technical skills training.
Khea Sokun, originally from Kampong Thom province, aspired to be a small company owner in his homeland, using the skills he obtained in Phnom Penh as a vehicle.
On November 14, 2023, Dr. Hun Manet, Prime Minister of Cambodia, officially launched vocational and technical training for 1.5 million poor and vulnerable families with 4 months of free education. On the other hand, young people from poor and vulnerable families will receive a monthly stipend of 280,000 riels until graduation. AKP
