Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 13 years old
Dream: Become a teacher
Needs: Bike, Schoolbooks, Books
A Thang’s mother passed away when he was only three years old. After that, he lived with his father. Unfortunately, after eight years, his dad also passed away, and no one else from his relatives was able to take care of him anymore. Therefore, someone from his hometown village who had heard of the orphanage in Kon Tum brought him to Teresa and Thin.
Since A Thang just arrived in the orphanage recently, everything is still new to him. Luckily, the children at the orphanage are used to include new members to their big LittleBigDreams family and are, thus, very welcoming to A Thang.
In his free time, A Thang loves reading newspapers and books. Hence he wishes that the orphanage would have more of them. If you want to help Teresa fulfill A Thang wish, donate the LittleBigDreams Set for only 25 Euros, with the note “books.”
Because of his passion for reading, he is also very excited about the new project of building an education house. He can already envision himself in a book corner diving into stories. Click here to get more information about this essential project. A Thang dreams of becoming a teacher one day to share his passion for reading with children.
However, at the moment, one of his biggest dreams is to have his own bike. Until now, he has to walk the one-hour long way to school and back. This is primarily during the rainy season problematic since, by the time he arrives at school, he is already often soaking wet. On top of that, he cannot even change the damp clothing, since he owns only one set of school uniform. You can support A Thang by donating a bike for only 45 Euros, a set of school uniforms for 35 Euros, or a set of new clothing and shoes for only 80 Euros.
However, the best support you can give to A Thang is to become his personal sponsor. Thereby, you support A Thang while growing up and provide him with the necessary financial security to pursue his dreams.
i would like to sponsor A Thang:
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.
