Community Hope through Education

For many of us, a good education is something that is taken for granted. With the new semester beginning this week (and my stress level rising!), I forget how blessed I am to be able to have such a great education. However, that is not the case for most people in the world. Many youth in Vietnam, for example, are unable to receive a good education. These young students are forced by poverty to drop out of school because they cannot afford tuition, uniforms, and books.

Our partnership with South-East Asian Relief provides hope for the youth of Vietnam by giving them the opportunity for an apprenticeship or job training. There are many possibilities for training, including sewing, beauty trade, motorcycle and bicycle repair, and mechanical trade.

With this opportunity, students are able to earn a living for themselves and their families and return to school. They even have the option of beginning a business of their own, where they can employ others to benefit their community’s economy.
