Yay, I have found a sponsor!
Age: 6 years old
Needs: Crayons, watercolors
Y Phuong grew up in very poor conditions. Unfortunately, her parents fell ill and could no longer care for their daughter. With a heavy heart, they decided to take Y Phuong to Teresa in the orphanage in Kon Tum. Y Phuong is still too young to understand why she is no longer allowed to live with her family. Sometimes she is sad and misses her parents. And yet Y Phuong seems to have settled in well with the big LittleBigDreams family.
In her spare time, she likes to play with the other children, dance, and sing. In some moments, however, the hustle and bustle become too much for her. Then, she withdraws to paint and dive into her little fantasy world. Since the orphanage has only a very modest supply of painting utensils, Y Phuong wishes for crayons and watercolors. If you would like to help fulfill Y Phuong’s wish, you can donate a LittleBigDreams set for only 25 euros. This set contains only things that the children in the home dream about – such as balls, painting materials, and books.
We plan to build an educational building where younger children will also have a room where they can play, protected from the rain. Click here to learn more about this important building project and how you can best support it.
Besides painting, Y Phuong loves to look over the shoulder of the older children while they do their homework. She is looking forward to the day when she can finally go to school. It is also her dream to work as a teacher and pass on her knowledge to others. But there is still a long way to go until then.
If you would like to support her on this journey, you can take over a personal sponsorship for Y Phuong for only 93 cents per day. By doing so, you help Y Phuong to grow up without financial worries and to continue to pursue her small and big 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.
