I met a young monk, Boworn Saensong, on my travels in Thailand this year and his dedication and motivation to obtain an education touched my heart. He became a monk at the age of 12, leaving his family and loved ones, as it was the only option to gain a free education. Boworn was a monk for 6 1/2 years and was only able to see his family once or twice a year.
Fighting against the odds he successfully got accepted to Maejo University in Chiang Mai a few months ago. I wanted to start a gofundme account to help him achieve his dream of becoming a computer programmer. I believe that with the love around the world we can come together and make his wish come true.
All funding will go towards Boworn's college tuition and expenses. He is currently actively looking and applying for jobs but it is a struggle with no previous work experience but he's determined to make things work. We sincerely thank you for your love and support in helping a monk complete his dream of finishing college ,obtaining his degree and starting a new life for himself and his family.
