eNett International, a leading provider of dedicated B2B payment solutions, has announced the second beneficiary of its ‘Repay the eNett Way’ CSR programme. Lavin Yongcheng, an underprivileged Cambodian student, will receive a full scholarship to learn English at the prestigious Australian Centre for Education, Cambodia. Lavin, who comes from a displaced community in the poverty-stricken area of Andong, will be given the life-changing opportunity to fulfill his ambition of becoming a translator in the rapidly growing travel industry.
“This is an amazing opportunity and I’m very thankful”, said Lavin. “Being able to study and speak English will allow me to get a good job as a translator and support my family. It’s a really good school and my ambition is to work hard and buy a house eventually. Thanks to everyone at eNett who have made this possible.”
eNett CEO and Managing Director, Anthony Hynes, said, “I’m a firm believer in education as a powerful tool in breaking the cycle of poverty. English is an immensely sought after skill in the Cambodian travel industry, and it gives me great pleasure to see ‘Repay the eNett Way’ changing lives in this way. It’s not only going to improve his prospects, but that of his current and future family for generations to come.”
Launched at the start of 2016, ‘Repay the eNett Way’ is designed to support people impacted by greater globalisation and tourism. The next stage of the programme will see eight eNett staff members travel to Cambodia to experience the problems faced by local communities for themselves. And provide a helping hand with the local initiatives started there.
The ‘Repay the eNett Way’ programme aims to draw industry attention to the issues faced by displaced communities in high growth travel destinations, and take a hands-on approach to making a difference to their way of life. Cambodia was the inaugural country selected to benefit from the initiative through its high levels of poverty, despite travel industry growth.
