Education is a human right with immense power to transform ..… (Kofi Annan)

Hi everyone,

Rose and I have just returned from another wonderful trip to Hanoi. We were extremely busy but we had a great time catching up with everyone.

It’s quite amazing how quickly ACCV is growing. When we decided that education was the tool that we would use to help these young people to break the cycle of poverty and empower them to build a better life for themselves we had no idea just how many people we would meet who really need our help. As the initial massage and Braille course we funded has been so successful (eight out of ten students are now working) we have been asked if we will support a couple of other blind Association centres in the poorest parts of Hanoi. We will be running a number of different courses for blind students including Massage, Information Technology (IT), English language and IT teacher training courses.

We have met so many delightful young people who are very eager for an opportunity to educate themselves, and we’re very eager to help them, there’s just a minor detail of raising the funds!

Here’s how you can help

$10.. Will buy a Braille board and paper for a blind student

$20.. Will buy Hien’s family rice and medicines for a month

$50.. Will pay for two blind siblings to attend school for a month

$100. Will pay for rice and oil for Friendship Home for two weeks

$200.. Will supply the children of FH with necessary household goods

$500.. Will pay for an English language course for eight blind students

$1000 Will pay for an IT course for ten blind students

$2000. Will pay for an IT course to train 5 blind IT teachers

$5000 Will pay for a massage course for ten blind students

We also really appreciate the efforts of those who run fund raising activities on our behalf.

Every dollar makes a difference, and all donations at all are gratefully received. Thank you!!

Kind Regards
Alison & Rose
