We awarded scholarship to 10 students of disadvantaged families in Vinh Loi district of Bac Lieu province, Vietnam.
The ceremony of our first round of our scholarship program for 2023 took place today (07/02/2023) at the People’s Committee (City Council) of Vinh Loi District, Bac Lieu province, Vietnam.
11 students of disadvantaged families were nominated for receiving our scholarship for 2023. Unfortunately, we were informed at the last minute that one of the students (Hồ Ngọc Thanh) dropped out of school. 10 students received 3,000,000 vnd (AUD $180), which will cover their school fee, health & accident insurance, 2 sets of uniforms, and books for entire school year.
We would like to thank:
Vinh Loi Education Department for facilitating the ceremony and arranging the students from various schools in the district.
The school staff, who accompanied the very young students to attend the ceremony.
Vinh Loi People Committee, for making the hall available for us and students
Our biggest thank to our donors (Mr. Pierre Verlinden, Mr. Neil Tothill, Mr. Parsottam Odhavji, and Ms. Rebekah Sturt) for sponsoring the education of these children and helping them to achieve their dreams. We hope that these students will continue with high school performance to receive our scholarship next year.
