Student Stories

Vietnam is a country with great opportunities. This is why our focus is on disadvantaged youth, who are likely to miss out on these opportunities because they have to overcome challenges that most do not have.

Our graduates, who have reached out for their own future, have demonstrated great courage and determination. Through hard work, they are turning their lives around. Meet some of our inspiring students and read their stories below.

  • Bui Thi Tra Mi

    Ten years ago, Bui Thi Tra Mi’s father was involved in a tragic accident that left him unable to work. Desperate to support her three children, Mi’s mother was left to work long hours on the family’s farm growing rice, peanuts, cassava, and other crops. From a young age, Mi helped her mother in the fields—attending school during the morning hours and working in the afternoons. When she wasn’t working or studying, she recalls the countless times that she accompanied her ailing father to the hospital.
  • Vu Thanh Mai

    It is said that having a basic education is a right that everyone should be entitled to. But for Mai, going to school has never been an option, because of two reasons: her parents are very poor, and her arms are severely disabled.
