Mission

The mission of Bridges to Learning is to provide education, health and social development programs to empower impoverished Vietnamese children to change their world.

We believe all people deserve the opportunity to pursue their dreams, experience love and contribute to the common good, without fear of prejudice or discrimination.

At this time of fear and uncertainty, due to a global pandemic, hurtful rhetoric and violence in our communities, we condemn acts of violence and racism reaffirm our commitment to love, equity and inclusion for all.

Students in online class on Skype, Anh Linh School Saigon HCMC Vietnam
Here, There, and Everywhere Needy students celebrate Tet Vietnamese Lunar New Year. Anh Linh School Saigon HCMC Vietnam.
The good news is schools are now open for in-person learning for primary and secondary kids! Also, the older students returned to the school prior to Tet, took standard exams and had a mini-Tet celebration. A little bit of normalcy in a crazy couple of years. For Tet, generous donors from B2L made special contributions to provide “lucky money”, which was supplemented by B2L general funds. Each child received lucky money and a number of especially impoverished families received additional funds to start their new year.
 
The bad news is Covid is infecting students, so while some schools have switched back to all online classes, Anh Linh has kept the doors open and is offering online classes too. Online students are logging in either locally or from remote villages where they returned when the city shut down last year. 
 
So the struggle continues as the teachers are teaching, engaging and nurturing the students, here, there and everywhere!   
 
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!
