Text Books for Tet

It wasn’t the candy or clothes they were expecting on Tet, but elementary students in Vinh Long Vietnam, got excited nonetheless. Nearly 4,000 notebooks and 7,000 pens were part of the school supplies given as a Tet present to the 180 children from poor farming families.

The children are always happy to experience the love and care given them by the Children’s Hope - Partners in Hope for Vietnam. Thuy Nguyen Thon Thi Diem, Children’s Hope- Vietnam, says that Partner’s nutritional and tuition support through the year is proof to these children, that they are not alone in their hope for an education that lifts them out of poverty.
