On behalf of the entire Orphan Impact team based in Vietnam, I can say that we are thrilled to be joining the East Villagers community! There are so many great stories here about the creative ways small non-profit organizations are making impact in vulnerable communities around the world. As a small project working in Vietnamese orphanages, we are very aware of the challenges facing organizations with limited resources, but also know firsthand that significant good can be done on a limited budget. It is privilege to join a community of individuals and organizations who share these same challenges and understand the commitment and perseverence required in running a non-profit organizations.
We were so fortunate to be recent recipients of a generous $20,000 grant from the Chao Foundation. It will be a great joy to work in partnership with the Transparent Fish Fund/Chao Foundation throughout 2013 to bring high quality computer & internet training to orphaned children in Vietnam. Throughout the year, we hope to use this forum to share our stories - both successes and challenges - as we work to grow our project and expand from 5 orphanages and 148 participating children to 13 orphanages and more than 500 participating children.
Many thanks to our new partners in the Transparents Fish Fund & Chao Foundation. Thank you for providing us with the support we needed to expand our model (a model we have been working hard to develop over the past 3 years) to reach a significant number of orphaned children in some of the most impoverished provinces of Vietnam. We are so grateful to you for your support!
