Throughout the 25 years of our work supporting Vietnamese children in overcoming barriers to education, we saw many underprivileged children still struggling to continue their education. One of the most common reasons is financial difficulties, leading many to feel discouraged in pursuing their education as their families were unable to afford the costs of attending school.
For many of these children, it can take as long as two to three hours to go to school and back home every day. It’s not only a matter of time, but also of safety and health that continues to weigh heavy on the students and their families, begging the question, how many children can continue their studies in these conditions?
A gift of a bike would provide a student with an opportunity to overcome such barriers and continue their education, saigonchildren is asking you to support our “A Bike to a Child” fund – aiming to give 100 bicycles to children in need.
This fund provides support for disadvantaged children to be able to go school. This will open the door to a brighter future.
