EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2013
This fundraiser is for my Vietnamese friends Hang and Thinh to learn English so they can pursue Ph. Doctorates.
In 2012 I worked in Saigon, Vietnam in the Ministry of Environment. There I met two young, very hard-working Vietnamese: Nguyen Thuy Hang and Ngo Thinh Nam. We worked together for almost a year and have since remained friends.
Hang and Thinh are very passionate about furthering their education. They currently have Vietnamese Bachelor degrees and Master degrees. They both want to study for a Ph. D in their fields of hydrology and water resources management but for the type of education they require, this is only possible outside of Vietnam.
Both Hang and Thinh possess sufficient levels of English but to gain a good understanding require personal tutelage, which is very expensive in Vietnam.
And so, I'm looking for people to help them!
About $10 will cover the cost of personal, one or one-and-a-half hours of tuition by a trained English teacher.
I am hoping to raise $500 for my friends which will cover about 50 classes.
If you'd care to donate, we'd very much appreciate it!
Thanks for reading and cheers,
