Y Mai´s story
Y Mai Luyến’s family is very poor and her father is unfortunately seriously ill. That is why she could no longer be cared for and was brought to Teresa’s orphanage.
How does he prefer to spend his free time?
In her free time, she is a real bookworm and likes to sink into exciting stories. She is already looking forward to the new education centre with its library, which we want to fill with all kinds of books. She would like to pass on this love of literature later on and dreams of becoming a teacher in a local school.
How can you best support him?
Y Mai’s heart’s desire is to read new and exciting books. So far, the orphanage’s selection is still very small, and Y Mai already knows almost all the stories. If you would like to help us fulfill Y Mai’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 she dream of?
In order to be able to pass on her love of literature later on, Y Mai Luyến dreams of becoming a teacher in one of the surrounding schools.
If you would like to help Y Mai realize this dream one day, you can become her personal sponsor for just 93 cents a day. Through this sponsorship, you will support her while growing up and helping her 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 Theresa 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.
