It's an 8!

Two posts in one day - I just can't help myself!

Our young friend, Ngoc, has come into the center today to tell us the results of his first ever school exams. He scored an 8! (Out of 10, that is).

My November 26 blog told Ngoc's story in brief - he was trafficked to Ho Chi Minh City but with our help has left the streets behind and at age 13 is now in school, where he should be.

The school year started in September, but Ngoc commenced study in November - which makes his score of 8 an even bigger achievement.

Congrats, Ngoc! You're a champion.
