How to make a donation

Donations are always appreciated and make a big difference to the life of a child in Vietnam!

Your donation will help the work of Children's Education Foundation - Vietnam in many ways. Donating will help a child to receive what we think of as a basic right - an education. Education is a valuable gift for life.

Funds help us to continue sending young girls to school so that they become educated women better able to contribute to their family and wider community. They are then more likely to earn a much greater income, be knowledgeable mothers better able to care for their children’s health, and they are less likely to be abused.

And your donation will substantially reduce the risk of a girl being trafficked for prostitution or sweat shop labour, because she’s at school.

Here are a few specific examples of what your money can do:
$100 - annual food supplement for a child in our sponsorship program who hasn't got enough to eat
$150 - education per anum for child in primary school  - grade 1-5
$200 - education per anum for a child in grade 6-9
(for a child who doesn't need extra food or accommodation costs covered)

$300 - high school costs for each year of high school (with food or accommodation assistance)
$400-$500 - vocational training for a school graduate or for the basic fees for a college education for a yr
$800-$1000 - university cost per anum

Donations are needed for the medical needs of the children in our education programs: to pay for medical examinations, x'rays, eye tests and eye glasses, medicine and nutritional supplementation, and transport to doctors or hospitals.

 Some non-specific donations go towards education related costs and administration. Some examples of the use of funds are: bicycles for children to get to school, and winter clothes and winter bedding for a child in our education program who can't afford bedding or winter clothing. Some funds are needed to pay for my assistant to check on the children on a regular basis, write reports, translate letters, transcribe, do bi-annual local, district, provincial and national government paperwork, and also for transport to visit families, and many other things.

When you make a donation please specify if you wish your funds to be used for a specific purpose.

The quickest and easiest way to make a donation at present is:
Make a check out to ‘Children’s Education Foundation – Vietnam’
Post it to our USA Coordinator - Stephen Jackel
277 Broadway, Suite 1010, New York, NY 10007.
If you want more information or have questions contact Stephen or Linda:
Also do not forget that all donations will come under our 501 (c)(3) status which will be through any day and all donations from the last 18 months also.

Donations are always appreciated and make a big difference to the life of a child in Vietnam!
