I already have a sponsor!
Age: 13 years old
Y Ru lived until recently with her family in a small village not far from Kon Tum. Since she has an incredible number of siblings and her parents have great financial worries, they decided with a heavy heart to bring Y Ru to Teresa in the orphanage.
In the beginning, Y Ru was very sad to leave her family, but now she seems to feel much more comfortable in her new home. The other children have all welcomed her into the big LittleBigDreams family and play with her a lot. Y Ru is incredibly happy that the large home garden is being planted, and more and more animals are living on the property. She loves helping Teresa feed the chickens and pigs.

Besides gardening, Y Ru loves going to school. She is a very hardworking student and dreams of one day passing on knowledge to children as a teacher herself. But until then, she still has a long way to go, starting with the one-hour walk to school. Unfortunately, Y Ru does not yet have her own bicycle. Therefore she has to walk the long, exhausting way to school every day. This is especially problematic during the rainy season when she often arrives at school soaking wet. Besides, she cannot even change her wet clothes because she only has one school uniform. This leads to Y Ru catching colds and getting sick more often. For 45 Euros you can donate a bike and help Y Ru reach a dry place faster.
However, the best way to support Y Ru is to become her personal sponsor. A sponsorship costs you only 93 cents a day and helps Y Ru grow up without financial worries and pursue her dreams.
i would like to sponsor Y Ru:
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.
