Thank you to Cyril from The Help - Expat Services in Hoi An for donating this bicycle to one of our Lifestart Foundation education scholarship students, Yen.

Yen is a 2nd year student at Ho Chi Minh University Of Economics, majoring in Business Administration.
Everyday she needs to travel between three campuses to attend her classes. The donation of this much-needed bicycle will ensure Yen makes it to her classes on time. Yen received her bicycle in Hoi An and we then packed it onto the bus to travel back to Ho Chi Minh City for her.
Cyril, your donations provide great support to our disadvantaged students who are doing their very best to break the poverty cycle by completing their education.

If you like and support what Lifestart Foundation is doing across so many projects please consider a donation, joining our Monthly Members Club or running a fundraising event for us www.lifestartfoundation.org.au

CONGRATULATIONS Nguyet from all of the Lifestart Foundation team, we are so very proud of your achievements. Another doctor of the future.
We should never underestimate the importance of providing educational opportunities for young females in developing countries.
Every girl who is provided with an education is one less vulnerable woman of the future.
Nguyet has recently completed year 12 and has just commenced 1st year General Medicine studies at Danang University of Medicine, achieving her long held and cherished dream to become a doctor in order to be able to take good care of her mother and help other disadvantaged people in the future.

As with all of our scholarship students, despite enormous odds stacked against them they continue to inspire us with their accomplishments and determination.

During his last three consecutive years at Le Thanh Tong High School for gifted students, Nguyet achieved the title of an excellent student.

Nguyet is an only child, her dad passed away 14 years ago due to a motorbike accident, sadly an all too frequent occurrence. Since then Nguyet’s mum has been the only breadwinner for the family. Unfortunately, Nguyet's mum is suffering from heart problems, so she cannot do heavy tasks. They have a small stall in front of their house and every day Nguyet’s mum keeps busy trying to sell groceries to her neighbours.

Nguyet shared that when she received the Lifestart Education Scholarship it made her feel so proud and happy. This is not only an invaluable material gift but also a huge spiritual motivation that always reminds her to keep trying hard and striving for excellence.

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.

Congratulations to a fine young woman. You inspire me. Thank you.

CONGRATULATIONS Trinh 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 an education is one less vulnerable woman of the future.
Trinh has recently completed year 12 and has been accepted into Danang University of Foreign Languages to study Japanese. As with all of our scholarship students, despite enormous odds stacked against them they continue to inspire us with their accomplishments and determination.

During his last three consecutive years at High School, Trinh achieved the title of an excellent student.

Over the years I have heard hundreds of extremely sad and compelling family stories and just when I think I have heard it all, I met Trinh.
Despite all of the challenges she has faced in her young life already, Trinh is a gifted scholar and one we at Lifestart Foundation are so happy to be able to support.

Trinh became an orphan after her mum passed away 6 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 84 years old now and she stays at home and plants 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 a son who has cerebral palsy and a daughter who is in year 8. Trinh normally visits her uncle's family and grandmother on the weekend.

Trinh has always been an excellent and diligent student and is now living and studying in Danang thank's to her full Lifestart Foundation scholarship.
