Changing Lives through Education in Orphanages (Feb, 2021)
What started as an education program for orphans is now bearing fruit. We are so excited to see that 9 students that we have supported through our Sponsorship program have graduated in Medicine, Teaching and are now working. We can’t be more proud of them and can’t wait to see how they continue to help their community.
The Global Hand Vietnam Education Program started in late November 2017. Over 185 children at Dong Hoi, Can Tho and Da Nang Orphanage centers in Vietnam have received close to $65k in funding over the last 4 years. With your help, we have supported between 40-50 kids each year. A dollar a day may not mean much for many of us, but for the orphans in Vietnam, it means they can have a future and potentially help change the community. See what your support has delivered:
- 2 students have graduated in 2020 in the Medical field. One now works at Hue Hospital and the other, works for the Catholic Church.
- 2 students graduated in 2020 in Teaching. Both have moved to Ho Chi Minh City to start their careers in teaching.
- 5 students have finished year 12 and are make their own living.
It truly is a gift that keeps giving.
