ISPP Student Secures Grant for Charity Work



Hard-working ISPP student Sarah Derveeuw has secured funding to help boost a pioneering educational project she launched.

In June, the Grade 12 International School of Phnom Pen (ISPP) student was awarded the East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS) Global Citizenship Award for her work with the IndoChina Starfish Foundation (ISF), which helps educate some of the country's most disadvantaged children.

Determined to continue developing her project, Helping Through Teaching, the 17-year-old recently secured a $500 Community and Service Grant, which she will use to continue her good work.

Helping Through Teaching, focuses on ensuring older ISF students, especially those who hope to work in positions dealing with foreigners, could have a level of English sufficient enough for them to achieve their goals.

Sarah is in her final year at ISPP and is currently looking at university options and plans to study medicine.  She is from Belgium and speaks English, Flemish and French fluently.  She also speaks and reads Spanish.
