Somphos and Sokhua

From the Sunshine House family to a family of their own – meet Somphos and Sokhua

Sponsored by Awareness Cambodia since 2000, Somphos and Sokhua  were residents and students of the Sunshine House and Graduation House projects. Today they are university graduates, married and the proud parents of an adorable toddler named Galvin.

Somphos came to Sunshine House at age 10 after her father passed away. With both his parents deceased, Sokhua joined the Sunshine House family as a 7-year-old.

Somphos and Sokhua transitioned through our Child Development programs – Sunshine House to House of Progress to Graduation House – and in 2010 took up university studies. Somphos studied Economics  and Sokhua studied Architecture. After graduating with their qualifications, they married in October 2015.

Now living independently in Phnom Penh, the young family’s future looks bright. Both

Sokhua and Somphos are grateful to Awareness Cambodia for the care, support and sponsorship that helped them realise their dreams – good jobs and a loving family. We couldn’t be more proud of what they have achieved and hopeful for what lies ahead for their young family.
