This week four PEPY Cambodia Representatives, are travelling to Ho Chi Minh, as part of the Irish President’s State Visit to Vietnam. President Michael D. Higgins is the first Irish Head Of State to visit Vietnam and all of us in PEPY Empowering Youth are extremely honored and privileged that our NGO has been chosen as one of the few organizations that to send representatives to meet him.
President Higgins, visited our partner school in Ireland (Donabate Portrane Educate Together – DPETNS) in June this year. While there, DPETNS, he saw first-hand the work of our educational partnership and met Sarakk the PEPY Executive Director, Colm our PEPY Board Member and two scholarship students. In addition Colm managed to speak to President Higgins about the President’s own visit to Cambodia in the 1990s and Colm’s involvement with the partnership.
