This fall, help Vietnamese orphans turn over a new leaf. Equip them to succeed in life after they leave the orphanage.
Autumn is in the air. The trees have turned their brilliant hues; the seasonal pumpkin-flavored craze has hit the markets; and the night chill makes that extra blanket feel warm and cozy. The kids here have also settled into their typical school routines. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, orphan students in Vietnam have an opportunity to begin a new kind of education.
Preparing Orphans for the Job Market
Linh was abandoned at an orphanage at birth and will likely spend her entire childhood in this institutionalized setting. There are 2.1 million marginalized orphans in Vietnam like her, and only 1% of them will qualify for university.
Linh is now 9 years old. Before she has to leave the orphanage at age 19, let's equip her and other orphans for the tech-dependent job market they will face.
Help Bring Classes to 2 More Orphanages
Our goal is to raise $7500 to bring computer education programs into 2 new orphanages in Vietnam. Both orphanages are remotely located where children have few, if any, opportunities after leaving the orphanage. Between the 2 orphanages, more than 60 children will participate in the classes, scheduled to launch on November 7th. Your contribution will help provide the computers and equipment they need to implement the program, which is the platform for change and impact. Here are some examples of what you can donate toward.
When children come trick-or-treating at your door this weekend, remember the orphans in Vietnam who need your help. Candy will be quickly consumed; computer training will last a lifetime.
