In developing countries there are 140 million children aged 6-11 who do not attend school, and perhaps an equal number who drop out of school early. If all those under 18 are included, the number of children out of school surpasses 400 million. Many of these children work in jobs that are disabling and dangerous. In Vietnam children as young as 10 years old are seen riding water buffalos into the rice fields and working alongside with their parents. Others beg or sell lottery tickets, gum, and postcards in the streets, hoping for some DONG from tourists passing by. These children have never been in school. They have never picked up a pen or pencil to write or read a book.

On behalf of VDS, Bishop Paul Nguyen Thanh Hoan
distributes scholarships to some high school students in Binh Thuan in 2008.




Sr. Cecilia meets with 14 college students prior
to distributing the 2009 college scholarships to them.


The problem preventing these children from attending school is money. The only way to end the perpetuation of the cycle of poverty is education. With this in mind, Vietnam Dream for Success seeks to provide scholarships to children and young adults who are struggling financially.
