The first cake I make myself will certainly be for Mum!

Ngân is a girl who just turned 20 this year, living with her Mum in Bình Chánh District. After finishing high school, Ngan couldn’t imagine stepping into university due to the financial strain on her Mum. Instead, she opted to work at an eatery, and earned VND 4.5 million ($170) per month. A few years later, Ngân realised this unstable job wouldn’t secure her future, so she sought a different path to both improve her skills and increase her income to ease the burden on her Mum.

Through a fellow beneficiary, Ngân learnt about saigonchildren’s vocational training programme and has been supported in participating in a Western bakery training course at a partner vocational college since last month. This June, she will graduate and plans to either work at a confectionery company or start her own baking business. At that time, she promised to make her first-ever cake for her Mum.

Ngân once shared that her Mum seemed to have never truly experienced joy because the pressures of life and the family’s hardships continued to weigh heavily on her heart. However, saigonchildren now believes that her Mum is experiencing moments of happiness more than ever, witnessing her daughter growing up day by day and taking firmer steps in life.
