Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 13 years old
Dream: Become an English teacher
Needs: Bike, English Learning Program, school books
A Trung’s parents were already too old to work; thus, they could not earn any money anymore. Therefore, they could neither afford enough food for their son nor the proper education they wished A Trung could get. With a heavy heart, they decided to give A Trung to Teresa’s orphanage. A Trung arrived recently at the orphanage after the first corona way hit Kon Tum, Vietnam. Therefore, he still needs to get used to his new surroundings and all the new faces.
In his free time, A Trung loves to practice English. That is why he looks forward to the new school year to improve his English even more. Unfortunately, due to an expected second corona wave, the school year started delayed in summer 2020. The children of the orphanage have missed many school days due to COVID-19, so Teresa is very concerned about the education of her protégés. That is why Teresa also dreams of having computers and mobile phones for the older children to use for educational purposes. These could be English learning programs, for example. A donation to our non-profit organization with the note “Electronic Devices” helps the children, and thus also A Trung, to be able to use their time off school to learn independently.
A Trung is so interested in the English language that he wants to share his passion with others later. Therefore he dreams of working as an English teacher in the future. But some of wishes came already true such as his dream of sleeping in his own bed, since we recently built a boy´s dormitory. Until then, three children had to share a bed, and even then, there were not enough beds in the orphanage for all 73 children. If you would like to support Teresa in providing all the children with a cozy and comfortable sleeping place, you can donate a bench bed for only 152 Euros.
You can also sponsor A Trung and support him on his way to independence. Having a personal sponsor means financial security and support for him to be able to pursue his dreams.

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.
