“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” (Nelson Mandela)
Change the world of Vietnam’s children now!
In central Vietnam’s Quang Nam province, access to education can be severely limited, because families are responsible for the total cost of sending their child to school. Living on just $1-$2 a day, the costs of school fees and supplies are a large financial burden for the families, and children often stop attending classes at a young age. The educational structure in Vietnam requires that children attend extra classes during the school year and summer holidays. Students who do not have this extra educational support struggle to achieve sufficient grades to continue their education.
The Children’s Hope in Action Educational Sponsorship programme gives the opportunity to children from the poorest families to receive a complete education. We believe that education is the stepping stone to success and provides a path out of poverty.
The sponsorship includes:
- school fees
- school supplies, such as books, pens, pencils
- school and sports uniform, including socks and shoes
- transportation costs (a bicycle when required)
- extra classes as needed
In a family of multiple children, sponsoring one child makes a huge difference. The financial burden becomes significantly lighter, and this means that the parents are better able to support the other children. Additionally, your sponsorship will help to support other children in need in the community. As a sponsor, you will receive an update every six months and school reports, so you can see your child’s progress.
How much does it cost to sponsor a child?
Grade 1-12 sponsorship: $570USD /year
Tertiary/University Sponsorship: $1200USD /year
Kindergarten Sponsorship: $1200USD /year *
*In Vietnam, kindergarten is not subsidized by the government, which is why sponsorship fees are substantially higher than grade school.
Payments are preferred yearly, with a commitment of a minimum of three years. This allows us to provide consistency for the child so he or she can achieve to their fullest potential.
The children below are an example of children you can sponsor. There are many children in need whose futures you can secure by sponsoring them today!
