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!

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!

This year we celebrated the graduation of 31 children from the Lao Bao Kindergarten in Quang Tri Province! Since 2010, your generosity has helped provide many young children with the opportunity to grow healthily and learn more. PeaceTrees Vietnam's scholarship program provides the supplies and support needed for students to succeed in primary school and beyond.

With the new school year right aroudn the corner, we are gearing up for the 2017 to 2018 school year!  We want to thank you for all you have done for the children of Quang Tri, and hope that you will continue to support their education and futures! 

Have a wonderful summer!

Thank you for giving the gift of opportunity to children living with the legacy of war in central Vietnam.

Ethnic minority kids in rural Quang Tri live in extreme poverty, an issue that is compounded by the presence of explosive remnants of war. The children who benefit from PeaceTrees Vietnam's scholarship program come from families who struggle to fulfill even their most basic needs.

Your gift to this campaign is addressing the critical need for education in remote, largely ethnic minority communities in Quang Tri. Without the educational lifeline that a scholarship provides, these kids would be left to face an uncertain future. 

A $50 donation will fully fund a child's education for the 2017-2018 school year, including a uniform, school fees, books and other necessary supplies. We are only $3,800 away from reaching our goal, and we hope that you will continue to stand in partnership with us by providing kids in Quang Tri with the tools they need to succeed!

With your support, we have provided 253 scholarships to children in Quang Tri Province through this campaign since 2014--thank you for your investment in our work! As our dedicated demining teams keep working to clear the land of unexploded ordnance, we hope that you will continue to stand with these families by providing educational opportunity for their children. 

 When families cannot be confident in the safety of their farmland, not knowing if dangerous munitions are sitting just below the topsoil in their rice paddies, their ability to use the land to support their family and fund their children’s education all but vanishes. The children who benefit from PeaceTrees Vietnam's scholarship program come from families who struggle to fulfill even their most basic needs.

With a $50 dollar donation, you can fund a child to go to school for the entire 2016-2017 school year, providing their uniform, books and food that will allow them to succeed in school. A strong educational foundation will allow these children to have brighter futures, all because of you. Thank you for your continued support!

 

Warmly,

The Team at PeaceTrees Vietnam
