Our waiting list of children in need is ever growing. The list below is a small sample of children in need of support. If you would like to sponsor a specific child please refer to their code at the time of payment. We have changed their names to protect their identity. If the child already has a sponsor we will suggest another child for you. Contact us with any questions.
There are 4 people in this family: the grandparents and their 2 grandsons. The two little boys, "Hung" and "Minh" completely depend on their grandparents but both grandparents are in poor health condition. With the grandparents’ poor health condition, there is no way to generate sustainable income for the family to send the two boys to school.
After finding themselves without parents at such a young age, the two boys are forced to replace their primary parental figures and depend on their grandparents, whose age and health are damaging their capacity of care for Hung and Minh. As education is essential to one’s growth, the children are in need of scholarships to help them grow and seize their right to learn, to perhaps one day, step out of poverty.
A scholarship for each boy can be provided with $10 a month or $120 a year. Add on school supplies for an extra $30. Use family code BV_0146 when requesting to support Hung or Minh. Be come a sponsor below.
In the family, the mother, Lan, is the breadwinner. Ky, the father, suffers from severe arthritis that prevents him from working. Recently his health has deteriorated, and he has a lot of problems with his lungs, though he cannot afford to go to the doctor to get this checked. In 2006, the mother, Lan was working as an assistant in a construction site when bricks fell and broke her leg. To save money she only used traditional herbal medicine. Five years later the pain became unbearable and Lan had to borrow 35 million VND ($1520) to pay for surgery to fix her broken leg. To help the family, Lan used to work at a local pig farm, but due to her health and the health of her sick husband she had to quit this job. She now works as much as her body allows her as a farmer and she cannot afford to pay back the debt from her surgery. The family is on the brink of poverty.

Mr. Phu and his wife Mrs. Linh are both poor farmers. They were born into poverty and it has followed them to the present day. Because of their poverty, they could not afford to go to school, meaning they never learned to read or write. This is the never-ending cycle of poverty. Any extra money they do earn is from selling products on the side.
Mr. Phu’s mother has been living with the family ever since his father passed away. However, she is now old and weak so she cannot work very much. To help this family, the government supported them with money to build a new house, as their previous one was not big enough for 3 adults and 2 children. Nevertheless, the new small house still does not have a bathroom or toilet, leading to unsanitary conditions.

Giang is the middle child in a family of five, and her father and her younger brother are both mentally disabled. Her father, Hieu, is not able to work so her mother, Linh, has the difficult task of providing for the family by herself. She works hard growing rice on their farmland but the two crops she harvests every year are not enough to feed the family of five. The family does receive a small amount of welfare from the government each month.
Earlier this year Giang received a new bicycle from HSCV donors. It has helped her to get to school independently and to be punctual.
However, Giang is in need of a scholarship in order to be able to continue her education. It would be a big relief to the family to know that despite their difficulties Giang will get an education and have hope for a brighter future.
