Y Dan´s story
Y Dan grew up in impoverished circumstances. Unfortunately, her parents fell ill and could not afford medicine and treatment due to the lack of money. This, in turn, led to unemployment. With a heavy heart, her parents realized that they could no longer take care of their daughter and decided to take Y Dan to Teresa’s orphanage in Kon Tum. Y Dan has not lived with Teresa for long and sometimes still suffers from homesickness. But she usually is a delighted child who loves to sing and play with the other children in her spare time.
What is she dreaming about?
Currently, her biggest wish is to own a new board game that she can play with her friends. If you would like to help fulfill Y Dan’s wish, you can donate a LittleBigDreams set for only 25 Euros. This set contains only the things that the children want most – for instance, balls, games, and books. While playing, Y Dan is immersed in her own little fantasy world.
If you ask her what she wants to be when she grows up, she has a new dream every time. But Y Dan still has a long way to go before she makes this decision.
How can you best support her?
At the moment, the most important thing is that the youngest children in the orphanage, including Y Dan, have a room to play in that is protected from the rain. Since we have only a very modest selection of games and books for toddlers so far, we want to change this soon. Because we are planning to build an educational building in which one room is intended as a retreat for the younger children. Learn more about this essential project here.
However, the best way to support Y Dan is to take on a personal sponsorship for her. With only 93 cents per day, you can help her grow up without financial worries and pursue her big and small dreams.
i would like to sponsor Y Dan:
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.
