I 2007 ble et utdanningsfond for videre utdanning for barna på KFO (barnehjemmet) etablert. Mange av dem er ferdigutdannet innen områdene IT, regnskap og juss. Alle er i jobb med gode lønninger i forhold til lokal standard.
Norway House utvidet så studentprogrammet ved også å gi tilbud til barn som ikke kom fra barnehjemmet.
Siden 2007 har 25 studenter, hvorav 14 er kvinnelige fått støtte gjennom programmet. I 2017 var det 8 studenter igjen og per februar 2018 er det 2 studenter som ikke har fullført utdannelsen ennå, disse er støttet frem til 2020. I tillegg er Miss Chandy innvilget 2 år til. Siste nytt i september 2018 er at Theary Noun er innvilget master i 2 år. Vi har fulgt henne siden hun var liten jente på barnehjemmet, les historien hennes her
De fleste av studentene har vært innlosjert i et hus vi har leid, like i nærheten av vår samarbeidspartner CRF (Child Rights Foundation). CRF følger opp studentene på daglig basis.

My name is Din Kong. I used to be a Norway House student. I graduated with a degree in accounting after 4 years of study. Please read my letter of thanks:
" The first time I would like to say thanks for orphanage center that give a place to me for living and study 12 or 13 years ago. And the second Thanks to Norway House that gives scholarship and pay for all everything like Food, Accommodation, Study cost and everything that important to me, if I don’t have a scholarship from Norway House I don’t know how is my life today or further? But now my life so better than before and I hope in the further my life will be better and better. The third thanks for Child Rights Foundation organization (CRF) to give a chance to me to do volunteer and especially give opportunity from Volunteer to Full staff, and now I learned and knew a lot of thing from CRF and one more thanks for all of staff in CRF always give advice and share experience to me. I really would like to say thanks and thanks for all of u and love all of u so much. I know it is a short letter but it is really in my heart to say Thanks.
