These unique scholarships not only cover the costs of tuition, uniform, books and stationery, but also provide 10kg a month of rice for the poorest families, and social care for all of the children to ensure that nothing prevents them from getting their education and going on to a secure and prosperous life. The support brings an opportunity not only for the children but for their family also.

There are many stories to tell because of the kindhearted people who are willing to help the most deprived kids fulfill their potential. The scholarships will support kids  like TrungSonMạnhYen, and many other students who live in difficult circumstances but have never stopped learning and dreaming.

 

Our Child Development Scholarship Programme removes barriers to education by providing scholarships – including tuition fees, books, rice, uniforms, stationery and social care – to children from disadvantaged backgrounds from primary school to university.  The donation from our kind-hearted donors will help change lives by allowing children to continue their learning path instead of dropping out of school to earn for a living. If you didn’t get a chance to donate, you can follow this link to make a donation to saigonchildren by Bank Transfer or GiveLively.
