Orphan Impact is pleased to announce that our computer and internet training project for orphan children in Vietnam has received a grant award of $30,000 from the Transparent Fish Fund and Chao Foundation, key strategic partners of Orphan Impact. The grant will help to support the Orphan Impact goal of developing 10 new orphanage computer labs throughout Southern and Central Vietnam in 2015.
Since 2009 Orphan Impact has provided computer and internet training courses to more than 1,200 orphan children in 20 orphanages with the goal of providing important technology training to orphans to help them be better prepared for their futures beyond the orphanage.
