Build a school - $3500
Life lessons begin at school, and this gift aims to improve lives from the ground up. By helping to build a school, you’ll be building the livelihoods of poor, ethnic minorities from communities of the Tuong Duong and the Ky Son districts in Vietnam.
How does this gift help?
In the Nghe An province of Vietnam, Oxfam's Build a School program is giving children the best chance to improve their lives - education. "The building of a new kindergarten will help local ethnic minority children in a very poor village to access better education…The new school has toilets and access to running water which will improve the health and general wellbeing of the students." Christine Gregory, East Asia Program Coordinator, Oxfam Australia.
Thanks to all the members who have made this gift possible and to those who attended the March 2009 meeting and made the selection.
