One of the girls from Phuoc Son in need of a scholarship ~ Guest blog by CEF's Ms Vy

She is a nice girl with sad eyes and a meek smile. She has been living in a small house made of low quality wood, rattan and roofed with corrugated iron with her maternal grandfather, her mother and her youngest sister since the day her father went away when she was only 8 months old. Up until now, all the difficulties and burdens have been placed on her mother’s shoulders. However, a fall many years ago causes regular dizziness and nausea for her mother as well as making her health decrease; therefore, her mother cannot work as much as before to give full support for her family.
Despite many difficulties, she is always encouraged to continue her education by her illiterate mother because her mother believes that it is only literacy and education that will give her daughter a better and happier life in the future, and not like her mother’s life in the present.

Having understood thoroughly her family’s circumstance and mother’s expectations, she concentrates on her studying as much as possible. As a result, she got ‘fair’ school results with a 7.4/10 average in the 2015-2016 academic year although she does not attend any extra tuition classes. This summer holiday, she is going to move to KonTum to attend extra tuition classes in math and help her auntie with some farming work to earn money for this classes. 
Never has she stopped making great efforts to make it possible to become a policewoman to help protect her community and her nation.
With a scholarship for the next two years this will give her support to complete high school and help motivate her further to make her dream come true.

She needs a scholarship for 2 years to help her complete high school: US$150 a year.
