Report 1-Stringed Instruments for Vietnamese Students

By Patrick O'Brien | Director

Dear Sponsors,

It has been an exciting few months for us at Rock-Paper-Scissors Children’s Fund.  Thanks to your donations through and the generous donation matching by Microsoft, as well as our new partnership with, we are off to a great start.  On June 27, 2013 the directors of Rock-Paper-Scissors will be making a trip to Vietnam to initiate new projects and work with our existing programs. 

While in Vietnam, we will be using your donations to purchase violins and cellos for the music school in Cam Duc, which will allow us to expand the school to include more students.   Our music teacher Tuan is excited about the opportunity to have professional lessons, giving him the chance to excel as a musician and as a teacher.  We will be speaking with different groups in both Hue and Hanoi, and begin the process of creating sister schools in both cities modeled after the success of the Cam Duc school. 

With the steady movement of our projects, interest in our local community has grown and we have been contacted by musicians and teachers interested in volunteering with us.  We are continuously reminded of the good nature of our friends and supporters and have great appreciation for the kindness of others. 

For those of you who have supported and continue to support us, the kids in Vietnam want you to know how much they appreciate the opportunities you have given them.  This upcoming summer will be our first chance to see the fruits of our labor, and we look forward to sharing with you all of our progress. 

Thank you again,

The Rock-Paper-Scissors-Children’s Fund Team
