Summary

Quang Tri Province in Central Vietnam continues to suffer the lasting effects of a war that ended 40 years ago. Landmine victims are often unable to provide a stable living for their children, contributing to a cycle of poverty in this highly underdeveloped region. With your help, we can give 100 youth the tools and funds necessary to attend school this year, allowing them to develop the skills necessary to live healthy and prosperous lives.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Because landmines and unexploded ordnance are still prevalent in Quang Tri, explosive accidents are devastatingly common. Once a child or a family member is injured, it is extremely difficult for that family to recover economically and be able to afford schooling. As part of our life-saving work, PeaceTrees Vietnam provides educational support for accident victims and their families. With the PeaceTrees scholarship, we ensure that these youths can attend school and maintain their independence.

How will this project solve this problem?

Funds raised through this campaign will provide a full year of primary school education to 100 vulnerable youths in Quang Tri Province. This includes a year's worth of tuition, textbooks, notebooks, uniforms, and any administrative fees that these children would be otherwise unable to afford.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through providing access to education and literacy, we take a step towards a brighter future for underserved youth in Quang Tri Province. By empowering these 100 young people with the skills necessary for economic advancement, youths for decades to come will receive opportunities for early childhood education and primary schooling that will ultimately help to improve the quality of life in Quang Tri and lift the population out of socioeconomic despair.
