Through the Charitable Trust, GVI sponsors 4 Novice Monks to attend English classes at Mekong English Centre for 1 year. Featured in this photo, is 1 of the sponsored Novices (the one holding the pen). As the Novices and Monks only have 1 English lesson/week at their Secondary School, it is vital that they received further tuition if they are to make any real progress in learning English. The selection of Novices or Monks to be sponsored through the Charitable Trust is made by the Abbot of the temple where they reside.
