“It is such a wonderful feeling breathing fresh air in school” – Thanh, 9, Quan Ba, Vietnam
We are urgently need new sponsors for children in Vietnam
Quan Ba is one of the most isolated and poorest areas in Vietnam. The poverty rate is 35% and nearly 98% of the population living on agricultural production. Agricultural production and infrastructure development are limited, as the terrain is mountainous and rocky. Safe drinking water is also scarce in Quan Ba.
ActionAid has helped the community increase access to healthcare for children by over 15% since 2009, but we urgently need more supporters to continue our work here.
Almost 20% of children remain out of school in Quan Ba as their parents cannot afford the cost of books and fees. Early marriages and early child birth are common.
Sponsor a Child like Thanh today. You will be your child’s only sponsor.
How does Child Sponsorship Work?
For more than 30 years we have supported communities around the world to lift themselves out of poverty. Because of Child Sponsors communities where we work know that they can rely on regular financial support. This allows them to plan ahead and transform their lives in a sustainable way. It gives all the children in that community the best possible chance in the future.
In Quan Ba ActionAid’s main focus is to improve gender equality; reduce domestic violence; ensure greater access to information, increase literacy levels and improve on how languages are taught in bi-lingual schools; teach residents about alternative sustainable livelihood models; and to improve access to clean and safe water.
We have already seen this making a big impact on the community, and your support is greatly needed to help us continue this work.
Quản Bạ is a rural district of Ha Giang province in the Northeast region of Vietnam.
