The importance of education flows through our lives so frequently that I think many people forget that it is still an issue in our global society. Like food, water and shelter, I feel that education is a basic need that everyone deserves to have but there are millions of children out there who are not about to attend school.
Developing a stable educational opportunity for children in an unstable environment can be the key to changing communities. That is why my organization Thought Threads and I support the Children's Education Foundation - Vietnam. We are proud sponsors of Linda's work and a little girl named Dieu. Our partnership is created out of a mutual agreement that education is an important aspect of helping children and families combat poverty by giving girls that opportunity for economic independence in the future.
By nurturing girls through sponsorship, we hope to make literacy a priority, economic independence possible and change inevitable. We recognize the educational privileges that we have and would like to share it with others less fortunate and that is why our partnership with the Children's Education Foundation - Vietnam is an important step toward making a difference.
