With springtime upon us, the children of Quang Tri Province will be looking to their kindergartens to provide nutritious meals and a safe place to play. PeaceTrees’ kindergartens are a space for growth and learning, and we thank you for your continued support!
Our scholarship program benefits ethnic majority communities where the consequences of the war persist today. 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. PeaceTrees’ kindergartens teach Vietnamese so that children ages 3 to 5 are able to succeed in primary school. In addition, we provide meals to give students the nutrients they need to grow and focus in school.
So far, your donations to this project have helped to provide 16 children with new books, healthy meals, and a safe educational environment. We hope that you’ll continue to support the kids in Quang Tri Province by helping us reach our funding goal of $15,000!
On behalf of everyone here at PeaceTrees Vietnam, thank you! Your generous contributions are sent 200 children in Quang Tri to school in 2015. We can be proud of the work we’re doing together. Because of your efforts, PeaceTrees Vietnam is able to offer a line of support as these children receive early childhood education in our kindergartens and continue to learn, grow and realize their bright futures.
These scholarships benefit children who live and play in areas contaminated with the explosive remnants of war with the possibility of falling victim to an unexploded ordnance accident.
With many more children hoping for an education, we need your help to reach our goal of $15,000 in 2016. We hope that you will continue to stand in partnership with us and with the people of Quang Tri Province.
Stay tuned - in the months ahead, we'll be sharing stories about the children who have been helped by your incredible generosity!

Thank You for Supporting Children in Quang Tri!

We are deeply grateful for your continued support of our scholarship program, which provides educational opportunity for children in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam, whose lives and families have been impacted by the explosive remnants of war.
Your gift is more than just a dollar amount; it is the opportunity to learn, play and grow in safety. We thank you for continuing to stand in partnership with children and families in Quang Tri. Without your generosity, the children in our scholarship program would not have the ability to realize their dream of an education because they live in rural communities experiencing extreme poverty. Educational and economic opportunities are further stymied in these communities because of the lingering presence of dangerous explosives leftover from the war.
Thank you for providing the educational support that these children need. We are proud that you are part of the PeaceTrees Vietnam community.
