HOW is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in the USA, whose staff consists of all volunteers. Its mission is to provide hope and care to neglected, abandoned, and orphaned children in deprived areas of the world with a specific focus on VietNam.
So, we were there, at the appreciation party. This was the first meeting of our volunteers and also the first opportunity for us all to know more about each other. We had a lot of fun there with our new friends who HOW brought together. We were singing, playing and having a good meal side by side as a family. We were delighted that our work was taken seriously.
Our work in this program is to help the kids at Bình Triệu Center with their studying. We have been working with the kids at the center for almost one month. This is nothing much yet, but we are in progress. The kids’ studying will be better with our help. They are nice, and eager to learn. If they keep the good work, they will sure have a bright future. All they need is just a little help because the Sisters at the center can’t support them all with their studying. So, we try our best to give them all we have. Tutoring is not an easy work, but our team as well as the kids work hard together to have the best result. Later, we will help them learning English with the program HOW provides. Thanks to this, the kids will have necessary Basic English, which is really important for them to be successful in the future.
Working with the kids is fun and we enjoy it. They are all good and obedient, so there is little difficulty tutoring them. The kids love there tutors, and we also love them. There studying is hard, but we try to make it easier for them. Though the schedule is not comfortable, we still manage to come to the kids place with HOW’s help. Our program has gone well so far.
We are happy that we can make a huge different to the kids’ life with our little contribution. Children are the nation’s future so helping the kids also means helping our nation. And what’s more? This program doesn’t only benefit the kids. Through it, we have a chance to know wonderful friends and to improve our social relation as well as our English and teamwork skill. In addition, taking part in this voluntary work makes us much more self-confident and active. With the activities we’ve been through in this program, though not much, we are not shy or hesitative as we were before. This program has changed us a lot.
So, we want to thank HOW for what they have done to help the kids to have a promising life, to bring us, the volunteers, together as an efficient team, and lastly, to give us a chance to contribute to your program. We are really happy and proud to be apart of HOW. We volunteers will stay with HOW as long as HOW needs us. Thank you, HOW.
