One of the many children whose family can't afford new clothes ~ Guest blog by CEF's Ms Kim Chi

She is from an extremely poor family and her father is the breadwinner as her mother has slight mental illness. Her father has to work really hard day after day as a garbage collector, from very early morning to late at night but only earns enough to feed the children at home, plus feed her brother who is studying far away from home so he can attend high school. She was thrilled to get second hand clothes last year to wear at Tet so this coming Tet, we would love to give her some new clothes. Your support for clothes may give her a great year filled with warmth and happiness.

About one of our CEF students ~ Guest blog by CEF's Ms Ngoc

CEF's Ms Ngoc wrote about one of our grade 12 students who is responsible and mature.

She is a lovely girl who always takes her studies seriously and really wants to go to university. I was really impressed with how she talked directly to her father after making up her mind to go to university this coming academic year.

She wishes to study in Ho Chi Minh City to do International Business Economics. It is a big city and therefore expensive, therefore she decided to ask her parents permission first so that they are able to consider the financial aspect to see if they can afford to send her there. She will do a budget for the whole course and the living costs too and make her own decision about studying there although she hopes to have parental support.
