For Highland Children - One step closer to school
July 05, 2016
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2016
A sad reality:
Do you know that 60% of poor children in Vietnam are ethnic minority children? The percentage of poor children in the Northern moutains is highest , 78% in the Northwest and Northeast. Because of poverty and the cost of education is too high, 1/3 of ethnic minority families have dropouts.
GIVE HIGHLAND CHILDREN A HAND!!! Why not?
Like many of young people, I have a passion for travelling. Every summer, I try to visit at least one or two places. And one time, when I visited a mountainous area, I found out that: there are many children who have never had a chance to travel far from their villages. I even saw some of them, same age as me, already had a baby and had to stop the studies at school to take care of their families. There are just a few children who have the chance to go to school although it is pretty much far from their houses to school. Especially, the road to school is so bad, tough and steep and almost all of them have to go barefoot. Plus, books, notebooks and pencils are always too old and sometimes the children even don't have enough pencils to write. At that moment I realized that I need to do something for the children. And that's how the idea of the project "For Highland children" was born.
FOR HIGHLAND CHILDREN: One step closer to school
The project is a series of programs which will be held in 12 northern mountainous provinces in Vietnam for 1 year. Each month, we will choose 1 province to hold a assistance program for poor children. The goal of our project is to help the poor children go to school and have better education condition. For each program, we will have a trip to the province to survey in advance so that we can truly understand the difficulties and know what they really need. Then we'll make plans, prepare everything carefully with the hope for a successful program. After that, we will plan to ask for donations: books, school supplies, facilities or cash... Besides, the members of the project will also raise funds by selling handmade items or teaching English...
MANG THUONG - A new beginning for a long journey.
We have decided to choose Mang Thuong, Tan Son District, Phu Tho Province as the place for the first program of our project. Mang Thuong is only 120 kilometers away from Ha Noi but the education condition is totally different: The children have to go to school on barefoot because of the shortage of shoes whether it is sunny or rainy. If they are lucky to be at school, they also do not have enough books or pencils to study well. They dream that: “my family will be happy”, “I will have notebooks” or “I will have color pencils to draw”….
They really need a miracle in life. And so we come for them..
