In Vietnam, families are responsible for the total cost of school education. Disadvantaged primary and secondary aged school girls are unable to attend school because boys of poor families are chosen over girls. These girls are extremely bright and eager to learn and yearn to attend school. By sponsoring girls to attend school, you are allowing her to have equal access to school education and pass her school examinations so that she can choose her own career path.

The goal of this project is to provide education sponsorship for 100 disadvantaged girls aged between 5 and 15 years for a period of 1 year. Due to families being very poor, boys in Vietnam are often chosen to attend school over girls as the families are unable to pay for their education. It is very evident that girls in Vietnam are disadvantaged by no access to education and as a result, there is a high number of young girls entering marriages and having a child, moving away from their families


Disadvantaged school girls will attend school for one year which will allow equal access to school education, pass their school examinations so that they can choose their own career path. Girls will gain good health and proper nutrition education to facilitate their physical and mental development and optimal learning while education will provide better opportunities for their future. CHIA is fully aware of the disadvantages girls face and the great need to ensure the girls can access education.

Long-Term Impact

Vietnamese people hold a strong belief that education for the next generation is pivotal to their way out of poverty however due to families being poor, the families prioritize boys to enable them to bring income into the family. The long-term impact this project will have on the girls of central Vietnam is greater opportunities for girls to progress into a career which is higher paying than the current low income employment opportunities such as house made, cleaner or beach seller.
