A The´s story
Sadly, A The´s father died, and his mother suffers from a severe illness. In addition, his family is impoverished, which is why his mother could no longer financially care for her son. With a heavy heart, she decided to take A The to Teresa in the orphanage in Kon Tum.
How does he prefer to spend his free time?
A The loves to play soccer with the other children in his spare time. This also helped him to quickly make new friends at the orphanage. When he is not playing soccer, you can watch him helping Teresa in the garden. He enjoys feeding the pigs and chickens and watering the fruit trees and vegetables. Learn more about our essential gardening project, which contributes to the independence of the orphanage.
Although A The loves having so many friends in the big LittleBigDreams family, he sometimes finds the hustle and bustle too much. In these moments, he escapes the noise and sits down in a quiet place to read or let his thoughts run free. That is why he is especially looking forward to the new multifunctional room and the education building, which offer plenty of space and quiet places to read in peace.

How can you best support him?
A Thes heart’s desire is to read new and exciting books. So far, the orphanage’s selection is still very small, and A The already knows almost all the stories. If you would like to help us fulfill A The’s wish, you can donate a LittleBigDreams set for just 25 Euros. This set contains only things that the children in the orphanage want from the bottom of their hearts – such as balls, books, and painting utensils.
What does he dream of?
Although it will be a few more years before A The finishes school, he already knows exactly what he wants to be. His dream is to work as a doctor to help his fellow human beings.
If you would like to help A The realize this dream one day, you can become his personal sponsor for just 93 cents a day. Through this sponsorship, you will support him while growing up and helping him grow up without financial worries.

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.
