For every one of them you give a free western university place, one of yours doesn't get to go.

As a foreign student, there would have been upfront fees same as for other foreign students.

These are designated places for overseas students, not keeping anyone out 

Someone or some organisation paid.

If there were no foreign students, all the places would be for locals.

Or do you think they'd just take less students?

Great story, all the best for her!   CCF is a great organization, doing great things in Cambodia, I learned about them a couple of years ago watching a story on them.

And I am more than happy that this happens. 

 

I dont want a world where the poor have no way out. Giving something to those less fortunate is a humane way society should operate.

 

im sure anyone missing out will find somewhere to go or study better.

Plenty of poor in our own countries, no need to look for poor foreigners.

Got a point there, they'd most likely take lessor students.
