Mission Statement

The Viet Nam Scholarship Foundation (VNSF) provides direct support to impoverished students from rural areas of Vietnam to allow them to complete their education. in Vietnam.

Description

The Viet Nam Scholarship Foundation (VNSF) focuses its activities on providing direct support to impoverished elementary school (Level I), middle school (Level II), high school (Level III) and university students from rural areas of Vietnam to allow them to complete their education. This is primarily done by providing scholarship grants to selected students.

In Vietnam, schooling is not free at any level. In rural areas it is often a severe financial hardship for families to find the resources to pay for their children's education; many children who are eager to learn are forced to leave school. Without an education, these children must help support their families by working at menial jobs with no hope for advancement, perpetuating a cycle of poverty. The per capita GDP in Viet Nam is $2,250 (compared to $37,000 in the US) while tuition ranges from $40 to $200 per year. Thus there are millions of school-age children eligible.

Would you recommend Viet Nam Scholarship Foundation?

Image that with $ 100, you can actually change someone's life. $ 100, you can help a kid going to high school for 1 year. That is very powerful to me. One of the best things for me is that making the donation and not expecting for anything back. It is amazingly powerful. Helping these kids makes me humble and reminds me how fortunate I am. I am thankful for the opportunity to make a different in someone's life. I strongly recommend this foundation to you. I know these kids will make all of us proud one day. Thank you for volunteering.
