A few photos of homes, students and their families from our interview trip in the mountains of Phuoc Son this week.
All have challenging situations, some have one parent, or no parents, an ill parent or two, and all families are without enough of an income to make ends meet, as well as keep the girls in school.
We are in the process of discussing each girl and her situation, and how much help she will need.
We have funding for some girls but not all. If interested in a scholarship please get in touch. They are US$300 a year, which covers all education and education related costs, that are not covered by the government, plus enough for uniforms and for monthly necessities.Hien is supported by Hanh now
Nien, aunt and cousin
Nien has a scholarship thanks to Richard. She's an orphan and her aunt, and uncle who's had a stroke, took on the role of bringing her up and in return she helps them with housework, farming work and baby and child sitting. Although a little unrealistic, we were happy to hear she did have dreams of being a professional volley ball player, although she is very short, as it showed she dreams of a future and that she has a passion. She is realistic enough to know: "I can have a much better job if I finish high school".
