CEF children that Rotary has sponsored

We are thrilled that 2 Rotary Clubs in Sydney have taken on 10 sponsorships in the last few months between them. This is truly wonderful as this means 10 more children are in school. Rotary Clubs are located all over the world. It is a secular organization open to all persons regardless of race, color, creed or political preference. There are more than 32,000 clubs and over 1.2 million members world-wide. The members of Rotary Clubs are known as Rotarians. The stated purpose of the organization is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Rotary's best-known motto is "Service above Self". Children's Education Foundation and the children and their families or carers are thrilled for them to have this support for their education.
Oanh's father killed himself, and mum can't make ends meet and send her exceptionally bright child to school. Now Oanh can continue attending school due to the help of Rotary.
Minh is an exceptionally bright child who with Rotary's help is able to stay in school. Her mother has very poor health, can work very little and is responsible for her two children and a mentally-ill brother.
Quynh's mother has poor health and a debilitating skin disease. Her father had a major accident and is recovering still. They have a huge debt and neither parent can work. Mum does some sewing when she feels well enough. Quynh is a very bright girl and we are thrilled we can help keep her in school with the help of Rotary.
Nga's parents have many children, dad has poor health and can't work much. Mum can't earn enough to pay all costs including their education. Two children have been removed from school due to their poverty. We want to make sure Oanh has an education.
Huong's mum stays home and looks after the youngest child and dad can't earn much. We are ensuring Huong has an education with the support of Rotary.
Van's dad can't work as he had a work accident and has some paralysis. One lower leg had to be amputated recently. Mum can't earn enough to pay medical bills, pay for family expenses and send her children to school. One child has had to leave school and we are helping Van stay in school with Rotary's help.
Linh's mum collects garbage and also works part time as a helper in a kindergarten. Her husband died and she is now also responsible for her elderly father-in-law. She can't make ends meet and needed help to educate her children. Fortunately Rotary has helped.
Nguyet's dad left mum with the children and they live in an isolated area where there is very little work. Help was needed for the children to receive an education. Now that is possible.
Diem is a very bright girl. Her parents are unskilled laborers and have relocated in the hope of finding work. At present they have no income and live with granny. We are supporting Diem's schooling with Rotary's help.
Quoc's mum died of a stroke, dad died in an accident and they live with their grandparents who can't afford to educate them. Now he can stay in school as he has the support needed from Rotary.
Dung become a novice monk at one when his mother decided to become a nun. When he is old enough he can decide to leave if he wants. As his mother is a nun she doesn't earn any money to send him to school. Rotary is making it possible for him to be educated.
