Thanks to our donors and friends in Switzerland we are able as well this year to invest in Bai Huong’s education. In June 2011 we bought school books for ALL kids in the village:
26 curriculums for primary school
20 curriculums for secondary school
On July 7th we disibuated the books to the kids.
The upcoming project in the next month is to evaluate the family situation of the children and to see which children need a further scholar ship. We will be able to support about 20 children during the school year 2011/2012!
We are actually hoping that with the homestay tour the village will get more independent in the coming years and need less help from outside. Our dream is it to see the children go to high school and be able to dream and life there future. At the moment there are young people in the village who don’t know what to do. The education ends after secondary school and the possibilities are very little.
This program will be continue in 2012 and 2013 and every year to make sure that every kids have school books .
After the library, finally we were able to set up as well the scholar ships. During our stay in Bai Huong end of August, we checked all the families one by one, to see their living situation and be able to select who really needs support. It was very emotional and also difficult for the families to speak about their problems. We decided from beginning to support only children from secondary school, as they have to study in Bai Lang (the bigger village on the island) and stay during the week there. Therefore the families have major costs for accommodation and food. Luckily the most families have relatives in the other village where the kids can stay. The next day we valuated all the families and chose 15 children for the scholar ship. The yearly school fees are VND 600’000 ($ 30). We sponsored the kids with VND 1’500’000 ($ 75).
Furthermore we promoted four children with the best grates during the school year 2010/2011 with VND 500’000 ($25) to encourage them to study. Also we had one special case: A 16 year old girl (in Grade 11 this year) who suffers from epilepsy. Generally this is not a problem, as she only has a few attacks during the year. Still she needs to see the doctor and get some medicine. To cover this costs the family could sign her at the government like invalid, and they would get medical support. In Vietnam to be signed as an invalid means no carea. The girl doesn’t want to this as she is very good at school and want to go to college one day. To ensure the future of this child we decided to support the family with the yearly medical costs of VND 2’500’000.
It’s a great pleasure for us to introduce you now to the children. They are very grateful for the support and want to say thank you. I’m sure they will even study harder next year.
