Y Nam´s story
Sadly, Y Nam’s mother died when she was just a baby. Since then, she has lived with her grandmother. But now her grandmother is too old to take care of her anymore. So she decided, with a heavy heart, to bring her granddaughter to Teresa in the orphanage. In the beginning, Y Nam was very sad that she could not live with her grandmother anymore, but in the meantime, she got more and more used to the vivid life in the orphanage. Y Nam gets along very well with all the other children and loves to play with them in the orphanage’s big garden.
How does she prefer to spend her free time?
Like many of the other children, she especially loves to dance and sing. As there is no room for playing yet, which is protected from rain, Y Nam is especially looking forward to the multifunctional space. Because there she finally has the possibility to write songs, sing, and dance together with the other children during the heavy rainy months. Click here to learn more about this great room. Besides this new common room, Y Nam is also very excited about the construction of the new girls’ dormitory. There all girls have their own bed and space to store their clothes and belongings properly. She’s especially happy to have more privacy to escape the hustle and bustle of the big LittleBigDreams family.
What is she dreaming about?
Y Nam has many dreams for her future, but she’s not sure what she wants to be. She still has a few years to make this decision. First of all, she needs to graduate from high school. Y Nam is a diligent student and is very happy that school has finally started again after the summer break. But she is still missing some school materials which are necessary to follow the lessons in an optimal way. These include, for example, a calculator and a rucksack. If you want to give Y Nam a great pleasure, you can donate a set of educational materials for 80 Euro or a backpack for only 15 Euro.
The best way to support Y Nam is to become her personal sponsor. With only 93 cents a day, you can help her grow up without financial worries and pursue her dreams.
i would like to sponsor Y Nam:
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.
