A Gu mother died when he was very young, and his father suffers from severe mental and physical illnesses. Therefore he could no longer work and, thus, could not care for his two children. In order to guarantee them a beautiful childhood with good future prospects, he brought A Gu together with his younger brother A Gut to Teresa in the orphanage.
The two brothers have not been living in the large orphanage family for long and are, therefore, especially grateful to have each other in this difficult time. And yet they seem to get used to their new home very quickly.
In his spare time, A Gu enjoys playing soccer with the other children in the large home garden. But most of all, he likes to help feed the chickens that run around freely in the big garden. The chickens are very important to him because he dreams of becoming a farmer with his animals one day. If you want to make A Gu and Teresa an enormous joy, you can donate a chicken for only 11 Euro. The eggs laid will be used for the children’s meals, and Teresa will sell the rest to neighbors and friends. In this way, the chickens help Teresa provide for the orphanage independently and represent an essential source of financial income, making the home independent of external help in the long run.
A Gu is thrilled to help in the garden. That is why he is incredibly excited to see how Teresa and her helpers plant the large home garden. Click here to learn more about this valuable garden project.
Besides the garden’s cultivation, A Gu is pleased about the new boys’ dormitory, because finally, he can sleep in his own comfortable bed. The new sleeping house also offers possibilities to escape the orphanage’s hustle and bustle for a few moments due to the smaller rooms.
If you want to support A Gu in pursuing his dreams, you can sponsor him for just 93 cents a day. This financial support helps A Gu on his way to an independent life while growing up.

How does sponsorship work?
You can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
We cannot support everyone, but everyone can support someone. Donating 93 cents per day can help Teresa in creating a homey environment and covering expenses for food, medical care, clothes, and tuition fees, preparing the child for a financially independent life after graduating from higher education.
How does it work?
It's quite easy. Once you know which child you would like to support, you will be redirected to the payment options. You can then also choose the amount you would like to contribute every month. The minimum amount is a contribution of 28€ per month. Next, you can fill in the details we need for your tax contribution receipt and the sponsorship letter, which will be sent to you digitally (address and email). If you would like to leave your phone number, we would be thrilled to thank you for your support personally. After filling in your personal information, you are officially a sponsor for one child in Vietnam! In the coming days, you can expect an email with a personal sponsorship letter. This letter will include further details about the child you chose to sponsor. From then on, you will receive every 8 months, texts and audiovisual updates about the child, and you will be notified if anything extraordinary happens.
How can I become part of my sponsored child´s life?
Twice a year, you will receive updates about your sponsored child. Otherwise, our blog and social media accounts are regularly updated with what is going on in the children's life. However, if you want to contact the child you are sponsoring, you can write them a letter in English or Vietnamese. We will take care of forwarding the letter to the orphanage and translating your message if it's in German. Additionally, it is possible to send us emails which we will forward directly to the child. Teresa has a smartphone and makes sure that the child receives your message. The children are always excited to receive messages from their sponsors and especially short videos and pictures. In case you would like to surprise your child with a small gift, please contact us first. There might be something they have been dreaming of for a long time!
What could I write about?
The children find it exciting to learn more about the life of their sponsors. You could, for example, write about your family, friends, pets, what you like to do (job, hobbies, interests). You could also write about where you come from, what your country looks like, and the culture (food, language, etc.). The children are always especially excited to receive videos and photos.
