The coronavirus pandemic and flooding in central Vietnam have destroyed the livelihoods of families and communities, pushing them into deep poverty. Without targeted support, many children will be forced to stop studying in order to earn an income.
As a sponsor, your monthly gift gets disadvantaged children back to school and gives them the key to breaking the poverty cycle – forever.
Rather than supporting a single child, your gift of $33 a month will provide uniforms, books, stationery, classes, training programs, and alternative education options for many children and teens who would otherwise be shut out from schooling.
As a sponsor, you will receive regular updates with photos and stories of how you are changing lives.
Your contribution of around $1 a day will have an impact for a lifetime.
“I love going to school. I really like my teachers, hanging out with my friends, and I think learning is so much fun.”
Hien comes from a tiny, isolated village in northern Vietnam. To get to school from her wooden hut, she travels winding dirt paths every morning.
Rain or shine, dry or muddy trails, Hien is always at her desk right on time. That’s how much this 12 year old loves school.
Out of all her school subjects, music is Hien’s favourite. In fact, she dreams of becoming a singer one day!
But without a helping hand, Hien’s dream will never come true.
Hien’s mother is raising her daughter all by herself. She works on the fields as hard as her medical condition allows her, but despite her efforts, that’s barely enough to provide food for the family, let alone to pay for Hien’s education.
Will you ensure children like Hien receive an education?
Without support, it’s only a matter of time before Hien leaves school to start working. And all these difficulties not only threaten Hien’s chances of staying in school. They also put her at a high risk of being trafficked.
You can prevent that from happening.
Give children like Hien the opportunity to stay in school and break the cycle of poverty.
