Vietnam Education & Scholarship Project
- Kien Giang , Vietnam -
Update November 2014:
We are currently providing scholarships to 180 needy students (of which 5 are college students)
The success of our children's future is embedded in their education. With an adequate education, one can dispel the world of poverty. Sahaya International has developed an education program to provide education to underprivileged children. Living in extreme poverty and harsh living conditions, these children lack any opportunity for an education.
We aspire to provide education to these underprivileged children in Kien Giang, Vietnam to ensure a hopeful future. To this end, Sahaya International continues to collaborate with the Buu Son Monastery, which currently provides social services to the rural community in the form of medication, food, and education.
Update January 2013: Thanks to generous donations of Sahaya supporters, we distributed school supplies to many children from underprivileged families, and are supporting 51 students with scholarships.
- Provide underprivileged children a grade K-12 education
- Provide underprivileged children uniforms and school supplies
- Provide employment opportunities for these students to attain a sustainable life
- Provide awareness to parents about the importance of education
You can make a general donation to this program and we will use it to provide much-needed school supplies (notebooks, pens, pencils, back-pack, school uniform etc) to underprivileged children. If you like to support a specific child, then you can do this via our scholarship program.
The scholarship program will provide specific children with funding for school fees, tutoring, uniforms, and school supplies. Sponsors will receive letters from the sponsored child, in addition to copies of their report cards and school marks. The scholarship program will be sponsoring children in grade K-12. In the near future, we intend to further develop the scholarship program to include higher education such as vocational school, colleges, and university.
For only $ 100 per year which is only 28 cents per day, you can make a big difference in the life of poor child in Vietnam. This amount covers tuition (up to 12th grade), two school uniforms, all school supplies, text books for the year, and tutoring.
If your financial situation doesn’t allow you to sponsor by yourself, then talk to your friends, relatives or colleagues. Perhaps together you can raise 28 cent per day or $8.30 per month!
Which children are still available?
We currently have many profiles of children who are in need of your support. Please contact us Chung Truong at email@example.com and we can e-mail you a list of available children. If you have selected a child, please let us know as soon as possible so we can update our list. Alternatively, if you prefer, we can select a needy child for you.We will e-mail you also the identification number of your child, which will also help you if you like to write your child.
How is the tuition paid?
The donations are transfer to Vietnam. The Buu Son Monastery in Vietnam pays the tuition directly to the schools. Each child is interviewed and then certified to be an eligible applicant. To qualify for the education program requires the child to have financially difficulty. A stamp of approval is supplied by the each school.
