TSC is actively preparing for two trips to Guatemala this summer, and a trip to Vietnam again in Spring 2016. TSC is beginning to plan with the Vietnam Scholarship Foundation to install computers in at least two more reading rooms.
The computer labs have been successful with students learning many new skills, helping them do well in school and prepare for higher education and jobs.
See the link below to learn more about the past trip to Vietnam from the blog and photos.
We appreciate your support of our work and look forward to sharing news about our future trips.
TSC continues to work closely with the Vietnam Scholarship Foundation (VNSF).
We are planning another trip for April 2016 to install two more computer labs in VNSF's reading rooms as well as check in on the labs installed this year.
TSC is going to Guatemala and spending time developing a stronger curriculum to assure that both teachers and students in schools are well trained to use the computers.
Thanks for the ongoing support that donors provide to TSC. You make it possible for Seattle students to receive scholarships and go on life changing trips like this. It also gives an important gift of computer resources to students in other countries to increase their learning and open more opportunities for their future.
Wishing you a happy holiday season.
The students in the schools are busy using the computers -- learning how to use Microsoft Office programs such as Word and Excel. This will help them be better prepared for higher education, and for training for future jobs.
Many new friendships were formed and we loook forward to staying in touch with the children and teachers in these schools.
A special thanks to the Vietnamese Scholarship Foundation for their continued support of the computer labs as well as the ongoing scholarships they give to students in these communities so they can go to school and college.
TSC looks forward to working with VNSF in the future to add more computer labs to other sites and continue supporting these labs as well.
The computer labs were successfully installed in the the schools/church in the An Giang Province between April 11-20. Many teaching sessions with both the teachers and children were then conducted to show everyone how to use the computers. The children at the schools were quick learners -- and were making a wide variety of documents with word, paint and power point right away. They did creative presentations about themselves to share with each other.
The computers give them access to Wikipedia and other important resources for learning. Thanks to Google Translate, the students from Vietnam and the USA got to talk and learn more about each other.
We had a great time playing soccer and outdoor games, drawing and doing art projects, and making friendship bracelets with the children at the schools too. Much laughter and fun was had by all. It was sad to say good-bye with many wishes that we all get together again in the future.
A special thanks to our partner, the Viet Nam Scholarship Foundation for being such a great support to the TSC team, but also for the many scholarships they give to the children at these schools.
