Y Thoang´s story
Y Thoang grew up in very poor circumstances. Unfortunately, her mother became very ill but could not afford medical treatment due to her financial situation. With a heavy heart she decided to bring her youngest daughter to Teresa in the orphanage. Y Thoang has been living in the orphanage for a short time and still has to get used to her new home.
How does she prefer to spend her free time?
In her spare time Y Thoang loves to dance and sing with all the other children. But sometimes all the hustle and bustle becomes too much for her. Then she wished she could retreat to a place where she could stay. This wish could soon come true, because a new girls’ dormitory is being built, in which there are smaller sleeping rooms and therefore more privacy. Click here to learn more about this valuable building project.
Y Thoang is also very happy about a common room that will be built soon. In this multifunctional room, all children can eat together, dance in the dry, sing and play, and do their homework.
What is she dreaming about?
Y Thoang has many more wishes and dreams. However, she is not yet sure what she wants to become later. But she still has a few years to make this decision. First of all it is important that she continues to study hard for school. Since Y Thoang knows how important education is for her future, she puts a lot of effort into school.
Unfortunately Y Thoang still does not own a bicycle. Therefore she has to walk one hour every day to – and from – school. This is especially problematic during the rainy season, when Y Thoang often arrives at school soaking wet. Since she only has one school uniform, she cannot even change her wet and cold clothes. If you would like to improve these conditions, you can donate a good and sustainable bicycle for 45 Euros.
However, the best way to help A Thoang is to become her personal sponsor. With only 93 cents a day you support her financially while growing up and enabling her to pursue her dreams.
i would like to sponsor Y Thoang:
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.
