As you know, we piloted our first program in Quynh Thanh, Nghe An last summer. In this village, an estimate of only 25% of students complete high school, with the majority dropping out to help their families by working at farms or markets. VNEP tries to fill in the education gap by creating programs for children.
With your support, we were able to enroll over 150 children into our 4 week summer program. Thank you – we couldn’t have achieved this without you all! This year, our goal is to reach over 175 students and teach them about culture through English, games, and other engaging activities. To do this, we’ve confirm the recruitment of 2 additional teachers to the program. We’re also looking to integrate technology into the classroom with the possibility of bringing projectors and a laptop.
We would love your support again to ensure another successful program. At the moment, we’re working to complete our annual CrowdFunding campaign, which we’re set launch by the end of this month. Check out our previous campaign, Mission to Quynh Thanh, to learn more about last year’s work. In addition, we’re planning for a VNEP Spring Fundraising Mixer. Mark your calendars for May 19th! More information to come. Please stay tuned to what’s to follow and help us spread the word about our work by sharing and following our Facebook page.
