Donations in Action – Libraries, Vietnam
Knowledge is the key to a brighter future but impoverished children in northern Vietnam are often excluded from a world of information as their families simply cannot afford school textbooks. Every child has the right to a basic education and ChildFund in Vietnam is dedicated to building children’s knowledge and providing them with access to decent learning materials.
Through the Donations with a Difference gift program, fully-stocked libraries with book cases, science books, story books, text books, newspapers and even chairs and tables have been established in Children’s Clubs. These valuable resources have enabled children to access a wealth of information and have the chance to read books they have only ever dreamed of.
