Having an injured child or family member makes it extremely difficult for the family to recover economically. Accident survivors and their families already have difficulty affording school fees, uniforms and books. With your help, PeaceTrees can ensure that these children can attend school and break the cycle of poverty for families still hurting from the aftermath of war. PeaceTrees scholarships include a full-year of tuition, textbooks, notebooks, uniforms, meals, and additional administrative fees that these children would otherwise be unable to afford.
We are only $2,000 from reaching our goal of feeding and educationg 3,500 children in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam. Please help us ensure that every child who is affected by an unexploded ordnance accident can attend school, graduate, and better support themselves and their family!

PeaceTrees Thanks You For A Wonderful 2017!
By Crystal Oswald-Herold - Programs and Operations Manager
Children are now attending classes in Quang Tri and are excited to continue learning! We are thrilled that your donations help us offer support and allow us to witness scholarship recipients’ educational success. So far in 2017, through your support and the support of other generous donors, PeaceTrees has offered scholarships to over 200 children. As we celebrate the holidays with family and friends here in the United States, we are also reminded of the need that continues to exist for many children in Quang Tri, Vietnam.
These children need uniforms, school books, and tuition each year. Mandatory school expenses and fees cost approximately $50 a year. While this may not seem like a large sum in the context of holiday expenses, in a province where many families live on $2 USD a day, the cost of $50 per child creates an impossible barrier for many in Quang Tri.You can help us grow the number of children receiving this life changing assistance and ensure that they receive stable and predictable support. This holiday season, we hope you will join us in fostering a brighter future for mine accident affected children and ethnic minority children experiencing extreme poverty. A donation of $50 will provide a child with scholarship assistance for an entire year. Thank you for your generous support!
