Project Need: Children who live in orphanages in Vietnam spend most of their days within their schools or orphanages. They miss out on real-world experiences. This curbs the development of social skills. They lack confidence and a sense of being loved. As a result, they tend to be unable to handle their emotions and can have higher rates of depression and anger. In fact, 80% of children in Vietnamese orphanages lack life skills that allow them to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. These children need our help. They need to learn the kinds of things that aren’t taught in schools.
Project Goal: The children will be taught basic skills.
Please consider contributing to this very important project. You can make a world of difference in the life of a child.
Project Goal Amount: $12,091
