Soukaina's experience at Children of the Mekong!

This week was Soukaina's last week as a Project Manager Intern at Children of the Mekong. We are sad to say goodbye to someone as hardworking and committed as Soukaina but we wish her all the best in her future career!

Below you can read a testimony by Soukaina herself:

I was a member of the Children of the Mekong international team for 5 months and my experience was unique. I decided to join the Children of the Mekong adventure to do something meaningful which could match with my business school background. Working on various projects as fundraising, while being in a constant relation with customers helped me improve my skills in complementary tasks. But more than that, it was the opportunity for me to appreciate the positive impacts of my job on children’s lives in Southeast Asia. I knew that every of my smallest action would have a huge impact abroad, which is the most rewarding thing I could have ever asked for. As an intern, you can work on various projects and help in administrative tasks as for example : accounting, marketing, communication, managing eBay platform, taking part in the recruitment of the team… Thanks to Children of the Mekong, I could polish my skills in every field that I am interested in. This 5-month experience will truly be a support for my future career. I am proud to say that I’ve contributed to the wellbeing of children in South East Asia while being a member of the COTM Family !

Ho ho ho! Christmas at Children of the Mekong

Last Friday, Children of the Mekong held their Christmas party for all the trustees and the team. And we are proud to say that the party was a hit and everyone had a great time!

The party was filled with laughter, chatting and beautiful testimonies by our two lovely Cambodian scholarship students, Kosal and Chhengtay, and our COO, Eugenie. Chhengtay and Kosal held a heartfelt speech about their time in London and their departure this Thursday.

We want to thank everyone for coming and contributing to the great atmosphere of the party and we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the next Children of the Mekong event!
