School’s On!

(On-line that is!)

During 2020, Vietnam escaped the brunt of the pandemic and the students spent the better part of the year in the classroom. However in spring of 2021, the Delta variant of Covid hit the country with great force resulting in near total lock downs and devastating impacts on the economy. The teachers, staff, and some of the older students, worked doggedly throughout the hot summer distributing limited resources of food and medical supplies to neighborhoods throughout the area. Fortunately, while some teachers and students have contracted Covid, they are recovering.   
 
The fall brought a return to school, albeit on-line. The teachers and students are working hard to make a go of it until they can return to the classroom.  Incentives such as phone cards and trophies are encouraging the students to log in and work hard while having fun.
 
The year is off to a good start, but your support is needed now, more than ever, as the schools are educating the poorest of the poor, and the economy continues to suffer. Please help provide quality education and nutrition to the kids who need it most!
 
A huge thank you to our donors and sponsors who are providing this critical resource for the kids!
