A LAPTOP DONATION FOR TRINH -

Anna Whitelaw, recently made a $1,000 AUD donation to Lifestart Foundation and we agreed to use the money to purchase a new laptop for one of our university students Nguyen Do Yen Trinh.

Trinh has just commenced her 1st year at the Da Nang University of Foreign Languages, majoring in Japanese studies.
Trinh was orphaned when her mum passed away 7 years ago due to breast cancer. After her mother's death, Trinh went to live with her grandmother, her uncle and his wife. Her grandma is 85 years old now and she stays at home and grows some veggies. Trinh's uncle is blind but despite this, he mills rice to earn a living. Her auntie who has mental health problems is a rice farmer and she also raises pigs and sells duck eggs sometimes. They have three children of their own.

When Trinh entered high school, she moved to stay with another aunt who is a scrap merchant. The reason for the move was so that Trinh could travel at night to her extra classes more safely. This aunt has one boy who has cerebral palsy and one girl who is in year 8.

Up until being introduced to Lifestart Foundation Trinh lived on the support of her relatives and a little from the local government. She received Lifestart Foundation education scholarship in 2018. Now we are supporting her with funds to rent a room in Danang to live, all food and living costs and all expenses to attend university.
Trinh is a lovely young girl who has been dealt a difficult set of cards so young in life, however, she is a diligent student and we are trying our best to support her in every way we can.

Trinh was super surprised and touched when she received the laptop from Anna. This is something she could never have imagined owning She is very grateful to Anna for this donation and she believes that this laptop will support her a lot in her studies.

#thankyou to Anna Whitelaw for making this fabulous donation possible.

A lovely girl! Try your best Trinh.

CONGRATULATIONS to LSF education scholarship student Trang from all of the Lifestart Foundation team, we are so very proud of your achievements.
We should never underestimate the importance of providing educational opportunities for young females in developing countries.
Every girl who is provided with education is one less vulnerable woman of the future.

Trang has recently been accepted into 1st Year English Studies at Da Nang University Of Foreign Languages and will be the first in her family to attend University. Like so many of our scholarship students, Trang values education and realizes it is the only way to break the poverty cycle.

In her final years of High School she achieved the title of an excellent student in 3 consecutive school years. Trang has had a LSF education scholarship for six years.

There are 3 people in Trang's family. Her grandmother is elderly and is not able to work and her mother works very hard as a laborer at a hotel. Trang's father is unwell with both heart and kidney problems and is unable to work. Her mum's income needs to support the whole family and pay back the debt from the expenses of Trang's father's treatment a few years ago.

Lifestart Foundations investment in the disadvantaged youth of Central Vietnam to date is in excess of 16 Billion vnd (approx $1,000,000.00 aud).

We are committed to breaking the poverty cycle of Central Vietnam's brightest scholars via education.

Lifestart Foundation Education Scholarship Project - provides fully comprehensive scholarships through Secondary and High school and onto to University.

Scholarships cover all tuition fees, books, uniforms, and the all-important extra classes. Our Year 12 Central Vietnam students need to leave home to attend University for between 4 - 6 years depending on their chosen degree, so funding for accommodation and food needs to be provided too.

Scholarships are awarded to academically gifted students from very poor families.
