Each year YWAM Mercy Vietnam encounters children in the areas where we work who are at-risk of dropping out of school because their family does not have the small amount of money needed to provide them with school supplies, books, book bags and uniforms, or in some cases bicycles or school fees. For most of these children a one-time gift of US$20 can provide what is needed to keep them in school this year. You can make a difference in the life of a child!
Education is a proven strategy for economic empowerment. However many families facing financial challenges struggle to provide the required educational supplies. When there isn’t even enough money to put food on the table, parents reluctantly withdraw their children from school.
Over the last 19 years we have provided educational supplies for over 10,800 children.
All of the money raised will go directly to purchasing educational supplies (less processing/currency exchange fees of about 5-8%). Local Vietnamese people in the communities where the children live will provide all the labor to purchase, organize and distribute the supplies as well as, with the help of our staff, to fairly select the children who receive assistance.
Thank you for considering joining us in helping Vietnamese children continue their education toward a brighter future!
Children in the countryside have very little opportunity to read. This negatively impacts all their learning because reading skills are foundational for all education. A good education can open up many opportunities for children to create a better life for themselves, their family, and their village. We work with countryside schools to create an inviting library space where children can choose books that interest them, so they develop a love for reading.
Each library costs about US$7000 to open, but a donation in any amount will move us father towards the goal of opening a new library and giving a new group of students access to books and more knowledge through better reading habits.
Cowbanks are one of our most effective and sustainable tools to help families increase their incomes and escape poverty.
What is a cowbank? Participating families receive a female calf to raise. The first calf the mature cow produces is returned to the cowbank at 6-8 months of age. When returned, female calves are given to another qualifying family. Male calves are raised for an additional two months and then sold to buy a female calf which is then passed on to another family. Subsequent calves and the original cow belong to the family and provide income that can be invested in other areas.
Families interested in the cowbank must have the necessary land to grow food and people to care for a cow and then attend livestock training before receiving a cow.
You can help sponsor a cow! The current cost or a quality female calf is around US$870.
