U. S. Ambassador Mr. William E. Todd At Don Bosco Vocational Training center for Girls, Tuol Kork.

The Don Bosco Vocational Training Center for Girls had a very special guest this week. After several days of practice and preparation, the students, sisters and staff were honored to welcome His Excellency Mr. William E. Todd, the US Ambassador to Cambodia. Ambassador Todd was also joined by other members of his staff, including Mr. Sean Callahan, the Deputy Director of USAID.

 Sister Leeza John,gave a welcoming address on behalf of the sisters and teachers. Samret Srey Leak spoke on behalf of the first and second year students. The girls sang ‘Love is the Greatest Gift of All.’ The song says that anything is possible with God’s love.

That message was echoed by the Ambassador, who told the students that if they work hard and believe in themselves, they can do anything. In his speech, the Ambassador spoke about the day that changed his life forever. It was the day his daughter was born.

 This event inspired his crusade to empower women. He said Cambodia is changing and it is the young people who need to seize the day and create a brighter future for their country. Ambassador Todd encouraged the girls to study hard, to listen to the guidance of the sisters and teachers and to believe in their own potential as young women, because someday they will be the leaders of Cambodia.
