This summer has been a hot one so far! Our kindergartens continue to provide food, education and a safe space for the children of Quang Tri Province, Vietnam. This April we broke ground on a new kindergarten, the Friends Forever Kindergarten! It is projected to open in September, just in time for the start of the 2016-2017 school year.
Thanks to your incredible support and continued dedication, we have almost reached our goal of raising $15,000 in scholarships! Unexploded ordnance threatens the safety of children and continues to affect families' economic and physical health. Children are thus often malnourished and undereducated, especially those coming from ethnic minority families in the remote areas of central Vietnam. Our kindergartens help provide a safe place for children to build a strong and healthy learning foundation, so that children ages 3 to 5 are able to succeed in primary school. We are currently $4000 shy of our goal and know that with your help, we can make the safe futures of these children a reality.

Graduation and Summer in Central Vietnam
By Rebecca Giovannozzi - Program Coordinator
It’s almost graduation and our kindergartners in Central Vietnam could not have done it without your help! Your generosity has helped provide many young children with the opportunity to grow healthily and learn more. PeaceTrees’ kindergartens are a safe place for children to learn Vietnamese and play, andwe thank you for your continued support!
Quang Tri Province still bears the scars of war and often, unexploded bombs and mines threaten the health and livelihoods of many people. As a result, children are often malnourished and undereducated, especially in ethnic minority communities. Our scholarship program provides the supplies and support needed for students to succeed in primary school and beyond. In addition, we provide meals to give students the nutrients they need to grow and focus in school that they otherwise might not get at home.
We are so grateful for all your help so far and hope that you’ll continue to support the kids in Quang Tri Province by helping us reach our funding goal of $15,000!

These are spaces for growth and learning, and we thank you for your continued support!
Explosive remnants of war threaten the safety of children, and continue to affect families' economic opportunities. As a result, children are often malnourished and undereducated, especially those in ethnic minority communities in remote areas of central Vietnam. PeaceTrees’ kindergartens teach children Vietnamese, so those kids ages 3 to 5 are able to succeed in primary school. Every kindergarten also provides meals so the children can build strong bones and healthy habits.
So far, your donations have helped to provide 114 children with the opportunity to attend school. These scholarships and your continued support have allowed us to help the children in Quang Tri, and for that we are deeply grateful. We are so close to reaching our goal of raising $15,000 in scholarship funds; please join us in making that goal a reality!
