For our students, moving from the province to Phnom Penh and starting life at university was challenging. It took a while to gain confidence. But now, their lives have changed for the better!
One student, Sreyneth said, “I feel interested at university and happy because I met a lot of people from different places.”
CFF students live together in a house purchased by members of the international board. The house serves as a boarding facility and the CFF headquarters.
The students live together in peace and harmony. All students have their duties and responsibilities to take care of their team members and the center. They divide themselves into shifts of cleaning, shopping, cooking, bookkeeping, and team leading.
Every month a Team Leader is chosen. The Team Leader ensures duties are performed and there is enough food. If someone is absent the Team Leaders replaces him or her.
Students have chosen activities at their school and those prepared by NGOs (charity events, workshops, training, and networking). They also want to explore Phnom Penh with friends.
For example, Yan Vosong says, “I joined a charity event to help Khutheak Botha Hospital and many events at CJCC. I went to a workshop at my school to learn how to apply for an exchange program and how to use technology in business.”
After the students finished high school and moved to Phnom Penh the challenges of their new life put service on hold. Now that the adjustment period is over, the students are ready to become involved in their service work again.
After the students moved to the boarding facility, CFF has continually provided workshops for them such as:
- Living Value: (setting goals, making plans, putting plans into action, self-value, and peaceful living).
- English Course: CFF has hired a part-time English Teacher.
- Technology: CFF center has wifi, students use technology for their studies, learning English, and communication.
