What One Degree Forward says: Yura is the older brother of fellow grant recipient Vudy, and he was raised in the SFODA orphanage in Phnom Penh. While quiet at first, Yura has an infectious personality that manifests itself in his quirky, goofy, yet genuine behavior. He is currently studying English at Beltei English school on a grant through One Degree Forward, and by helping to provide him with an employable skill, we are excited to help Yura make the transition from SFODA orphange into the larger Phnom Penh community.
