Most of the CEF students in Thai Binh work really hard and wish to go to university, with several wanting to be doctors. Those three girls are totally capable of this goal as they are excellent students.
We also have one student wanting to be a pharmacist, one a nurse, and one a business woman. The careers they are aiming for are realistic and achievable. One of our students has a totally different goal; she wants to be a Catholic nun.
Most of the children we work with in this province know a tertiary education is the start to being in a position to help their families out of poverty. When they talk about the grinding poverty of their families some of them cry as they live in such challenging situations.
The only way they will be able to go to university is if they are sponsored for the period of their tertiary studies. We hope we can find sponsors who will help them achieve their goals.
