A thousand thank you's for the immediate response to last weeks appeal for help with little Thinh's Primary School education fund.

We are only a small organization (by world standards) but we are able to make a huge difference in the lives of many in Central Vietnam.

Our dedicated group of supporters never fail to put their hand up when I put out a call for help.

Six sponsors who will now be affectionately be called "Thinh's Team" (you all know who you are) have now pledged the funds for Thinh's Primary School education. In addition Thinh has been invited to an interview for a scholarship place at the prestigious STEC English Language School in Hoi An - Smart Tutoring English Center! How exciting for her.

Sincere thanks from Karen, Thinh and Hoa.

If you are interested in education sponsorship for disadvantaged children please have a look at the Lifestart Foundation Scholarship Program..................

What an amazing story from start to finish. Just makes me happy to know this girl will get an opportunity in life that so many of us (including myself) take for granted sometimes. I don't even know what to say other than you made my chest feel like it caved in as I read this story. Thank you.
