Dear our beloved Donors,

For Vietnamese Stature Foundation (VSF) is pleased to announce that we have successfully raised more than $14,600 to sponsor semi-boarding meals for preschool children in Cao Bang within just one month. With the money coming from 120 individual sponsors and units (including the money from GlobalGiving), we will bring 72,000 semi-boarding meals to ethnic minority preschool students in Bao Lam district, Cao Bang in the school year 2022 - 2023.

In the first term of this school year, 202 students at 5 school sites Na O, Khau Noong (Thach Lam preschool), Ban La, Sang Xoay, Khau De (Thai Son preschool) were provided more than 35,000 hot nutritious meals every school day. Besides, students also had snacks (normally noodles, porridge, rice noodle) in the afternoon. Thanks to the daily meals, students attended school regularly and had good physical development index (both weight and height gain). To us and also to their parents, this is an amazing result.

"After the lesson, our children often excitedly talk about their school meals, how they learned to sing and played games in class and outdoors." - Mr. VAS - the father of two children: VTGL (5 years old) and VTKX (4 years old) - shared happily.

In order to bring the children nutritious meals, the teachers and the cooks worked very hard. Sometimes, the school site lacked clean water, so the cook had to go back to her house again and again to bring water to school. Sometimes, the cook has to bring dry corn to cook as there is no firewood available on the hill. Despite the difficulties, the cooks always try their best to give the children a good environment to study and grow up.

To keep bringing semi-boarding meals to upland children, we are looking forward to receiving your support for this project in the next school year 2023-2024.

Dear our valued Donors,

As the new school year has started, 202 students at 5 school sites Na O, Khau Noong (Thach Lam preschool), Ban La, Sang Xoay, Khau De (Thai Son preschool) are now cheerfully going to school everyday. The joy of school attendance comes not only from the new knowledge but also from the warm meals from the project “Growing up with mountainous preschool students”, which has been implemented by For Vietnamese Stature Foundation (VSF) for the third consecutive year in Bao Lam district, Cao Bang province. 

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, nutritious meals will be provided to students in the school year 2022-2023. With VND 1.7 million/student/school year (Equivalent to USD 75/student/school year), all students will have hearty lunches with minced pork, eggs, vegetables, etc., and afternoon snacks with a variety of dishes (like porridge, noodles) on a daily basis. All food and the cooking process for the children ensure food safety and hygiene. 

Seeing the bright smiles of the children, teachers and parents at the school sites also feel the happiness. The bright smiles are not only the promise of a meaningful new school year, but also the hope for the "Growing up with mountainous preschool students” project of VSF.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the sponsors and look forward to receiving your interest and contributions in the future.

Dear our esteemed Donors,

As May is coming to an end, another school year has just ended. This school year is the second year all of the students at 5 school sites in Bao Lam district, Cao Bang province have nutritious school meals from the project “Growing up with mountainous preschool students” of For Vietnamese Stature Foundation (VSF).

Thanks to the kind help from various donors, in the past 4 months, the project “Growing up with mountainous preschool students” has continued to be implemented. Nearly 30.000 hearty nutritious boarding meals with meat and vegetables and extra meals in the afternoon (noodles, porridge) have been provided to the students at 5 school sites: Na O, Khau Noong (Thach Lam Preschool), Ban La, Sang Xoay, Khau De (Thai Son Preschool).

The project has seen rewarding results: The attendance rate of 5 school sites is 100%. 188 students attend school regularly, no one dropping out. The students are eager to go to school, although the complicated situation of the Covid-19 epidemic in recent months has caused some school sites to temporarily close and have the students stay at home for 1-2 weeks. After one year of regular schooling and eating well, students gain 1.84kg of weight and 2.86cm of height on average (the increase of weight ranges from 0.3-3kg, that of height ranges from 1-8cm).

Last but not least, in the monsoon days of May, the annual volunteer trip to visit and give gifts to the students of the 5 school sites was organised successfully. Twenty volunteers from all corners of Vietnam, some of whom are sponsors of the students, gathered together to depart for Bao Lam district, Cao Bang province from May 19 to May 21. Despite the unfavorable weather, the volunteers, along with VSF, had travelled nearly 500km (about 300 miles) of mountainous route, crossed various mountain passes and travelled 30km on motorbike on the rugged and slippery mountain trails to come to the students at the 5 remote school sites.

With the help from twenty volunteers, 188 gift sets, each including one school bag and one pair of slip-resistant rainboots, were presented to the students to encourage them on their journey to knowledge.

Moreover, in this gift-giving trip, toys, crayons, books and clothes donated by the community were also presented to 5 school sites, with the aim of helping the teachers and students here have more necessities to play and learn.

In the upcoming time, the project will continue to bring nutritious meals to the children, so that every day going school is a happy day for them.

Once again, we sincerely thank the trust and companionship of the sponsors with the Project "Growing up with mountainous preschool students ". We will continue to update information about the project implementation on our communication channels.

Dear our respected Donors,

 

For Vietnamese Stature Foundation (VSF) would like to thank you for accompanying the project "Growing up with mountainous preschool students" - bringing nutritious semi-boarding meals to upland children in Cao Bang province.

 

Over the past four months (from September to December 2021) of this school year’s first semester, we have implemented these following activities:

  • Continue to provide for 188 students at 5 school sites in Bao Lam district - Cao Bang province with nearly 30,000 nutritious and balanced semi-boarding meals 5 days/week with vegetables, tubers, fruits and pork/chicken/ fish/sausage and a light meal (noodle or porridge) in the afternoon.
  • Ameliorate school facilities by sponsoring one refrigerator for Na O school site (Thach Lam kindergarten), three clean water tanks for Sang Xoay, Ban La, and Khau De school sites (Thai Son kindergarten) and one water purifier for Ban La school site (Thai Son kindergarten). These equipment will help the students and teachers have better learning and living conditions, as well as ensure school hygiene and food safety.
  • Ensure food hygiene and safety: regularly inspect food origin, check kitchen hygiene, water source sanitation at each school site.
  • Check periodical financial reports from schools.

 

With the above activities, we have obtained very positive results as follows:

  • 100% of the children attend school regularly.
  • Over 90% of the children have good physical development index (weight gain and height gain). 
  • The children’s language, cognitive and social skills range from 84.7% to 95.3%, thanks to regular school attendance.

 

In the future, we will continue to fulfill our mission of bringing nutritious meals to the children, thereby making each day at school a joyful day for them.

 

Again, we sincerely thank the trust and companionship of the sponsors with the Project "Growing up with mountainous preschool students ". We look forward to receiving your interest and contributions in the future.

Dear our valued Donors,

In the joyful atmosphere of the new school year, all 210  preschool students at 5 school sites in Khau Noong, Na O (Thach Lam Kindergarten) and Khau De, Sang Xoay, Ban La (Thai Son Kindergarten) was deliriously happy owing to the first warm meals from project "Growing up with mountainous preschool students” in the second year.

Cao Bang’s weather has changed to crisp days of autumn; therefore, students going to school in warm clothes were exceedingly excited about warm meals on the first days of the school year.

Thanks to the generosity from sponsors, nutritious meals will be provided to students in the school year 2021-2022. With VND1.7 million/student/school year (Equivalent to USD75/student/school year), all students will have hearty lunches with minced pork, eggs, vegetables, etc., and afternoon snacks with a variety of dishes on a daily basis. All food and the cooking process for the children ensure food safety and hygiene.

In this school year, For Vietnamese Stature Foundation (VSF) also sponsors schools with three safety water tanks, one water purifier, one refrigerator and iron fences. We hope that these support partly help the students and teachers have better learning and living conditions, as well as ensure school hygiene and food safety.

Seeing the bright smiles of the children, teachers and parents at the school sites were moved. The bright smiles are not only the promise of a meaningful new school year, but also the hope for the "Growing up with mountainous preschool students” project of VSF.
