How HHA scholarship impacts to our staff’s lives

Our staff recieved the outstanding students certificates

Our university scholarship program was launched in 2013 and will wrap up this year. During this time:

  • Five staff members have studied at the Australian Centre for Education
  • Six staff members have studied at University
  • Three staff members have graduated from a four-year Bachelor of management and education.

Due to significant salary increases that are competitive with other not-for-profits, we will cease this program and place any remaining funds into our staff development program. We believe in not only empowering and educating our students, but empowering and educating our staff as well so they can lead fulfilling lives and pass on their knowledge to future generations.

“As the oldest son in a poor family, I have never imagined I could pursue a bachelor degree at university. Fortunately, through HHA university scholarship program, it became possible for me. I was able to pursue my further education at a university. Studying in university for four years, I have bettered my teaching skills and have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge. Armed with these tools, I commit to using them to develop my profession and life. Thanks, HHA for providing me a scholarship to study at university; it makes a big difference in my life.” Salin – our Education and Community Manager, graduated from Bachelor of English Literature

“Being a part of HHA team, I could see that I am developed from time to time of being a good teacher and staff. Through the HHA scholarship program, I could get out of the financial problem. HHA helps me a lot of things not only the scholarship support but also the soft skills that helps improve myself with emotional, physical, and career. HHA helps me succeed my dream to study at the university for the bachelor of English literature where I can strengthen my ability to pursue my career in the future. Now, it is four years of school life has completely finished successfully and I am proud of being working and learning with this education. Thanks HHA again for helping me to pass this level of education without any worries and become the one who have graduated from university in my family members. I will use this value education to educate my young generation and help back to the community.” Bunrong our Education and Community Assistant, graduated from Bachelor of English Literature

“A life in a poor family is not easy because we needed to work hard to help the family since we were young.  Mostly, we missed the opportunity to have a better education, and good nutrition.  Fortunately, I am one of a lucky person because I could graduate from the university, although my family was poor. This meaningful luck, I would like to thank for the HHA scholarship for supporting me to study for four years in the university. This education is very important for me because it helped me to achieve such a great thing in my life that I never thought of, especially I can use the knowledge and skills for my current job at HHA, as well as my whole life. It also taught me that education is very important, so I decided to continue my master degree for another two years and half. In addition, through this education and my experiences in a poor family I learned a lot of things about life. I learned that to achieve my dream, I am not only work hard, but also need to work smart along with passion, patience, persistence and professionalism. Especially, I learned that education is the key to move out of the poverty. That is why, I love working at HHA because I believe that HHA is doing the right thing to empower our community members moving out of the poverty bracket through education, training and support.” Thai – our Director, graduated from Bachelor of Business Administration
