Only yesterday CEF decided to help more ethnic girls receive scholarships at one of the schools we visited recently in Dong Giang, in the mountains of Quang Nam, a district with a large Co Tu ethnic community.
We are all thrilled that we can help more girls from the surrounding poor communities continue their high school education and hopefully go onto university.
When they are from families who are struggling to make ends meet, they are under a lot of pressure to drop out of school, whether that pressure is from parents or siblings, or self-induced.
We look forward to working with this high school and their Co Tu students.
