Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 11 years old
Needs: Bike, Schoolbooks
Sadly, A So’s mother died when he was just one year old. So he grew up with his grandmother until she was too old to take care of her grandson. With a heavy heart, she asked a villager to take A So to Teresa’s orphanage in Kon Tum. A So has not lived with Teresa for long and still has to get used to his new home and all the new faces.
In his spare time, he loves to play soccer with the other children in the big orphanage garden. But sometimes A So likes it a bit quieter. Then he withdraws from the hustle and bustle to paint and draw. That’s why he is especially looking forward to the new common room, which offers a lot of space for creative activities. Click here to find out more about this multifunctional room. If you would like to support A So in his passion for painting, you can donate a LittleBigDreams set for just 25 euros. This set contains only things that the children at Teresa’s orphanage dream of, such as books, balls, and crayons.
A So is a very kind and social boy, always trying to make sure that everyone around him is doing well. You cannot help but notice that A So has already taken his new LittleBigDreams family into his big heart. So it is no surprise that he wants to become a doctor to help other people. But there is still a long way to go before then, starting with the daily walk to school. A So still has to do this on foot. That is very exhausting. Especially in the rainy season, the one hour walk is a challenge for the children because they often arrive at school already soaking wet and have to freeze all day long in their clammy school uniform.
You can help to improve this situation for A So by donating a good and sustainable bike for only 45 Euros. With a bicycle, the way to school is much faster, and a dry place is reached faster. However, the best way you can help A So financially while growing up is by becoming his sponsor for only 93 cents a day. By doing so, you help A So to continue to pursue his small and big dreams.
i would like to sponsor A So:
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.
