CONGRATULATIONS DIEU FROM ALL OF THE LIFESTART FOUNDATION TEAM
Dieu has recently completed Year 12 and has been accepted into 1st Year at Danang University of Technology. She will study Electronics & Telecommunications.

While holding her Lifestart Foundation Education Scholarship, Dieu achieved the title of an excellent student over 3 consecutive years at High School.
As a consequence of her high Year 12 results, she was selected to go straight to University without having to sit the entrance exam.

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.

Dieu's parents are rice farmers who work very hard every day to support their family and to make ends meet. Dieu's twin sister has also been the recipient of a LSF Education Scholarship and she too has been accepted into University.
We are so very proud of your accomplishments! The hard work really does pay off.

DOCTOR OF THE FUTURE - LUONG
When I read the letters of gratitude sent to Lifestart Foundation from the students we are supporting, I have no doubt as to the value and importance of the work we are doing.
Below is a beautiful letter of gratitude from Lifestart Foundation Education Scholarship student Luong.
----------------------------------------------------------
Dear Lifestart Foundation,

My name is Tran Thi Minh Luong, and I am a second year medical student at Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

I am very happy and feel so lucky to have become one of your education scholarship recipients this school year. Through this letter, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you all, and to share with you about myself as well as my plans since I received your sponsorship.

I was born into a family of seven members. My dad could not work after having a stroke which left him paralyzed on one side. Since then, my mum has taken over his role of the main breadwinner of our family. Over the last 6 years, my mum has been working hard everyday from early in the morning till late in the evening. She did every type of work from harvesting rice for people to working as a stevedore, to be able to support her disabled husband and her five children who all go to school. Despite many difficulties, she was determined not to let any of us give up on studying.

Last summer, disaster came again when my mum’s eye retina became detached and she lost her eyesight. Now my siblings and I have to manage both to take care of our own lives and to support our parents with their medical treatment, and we are almost coming to a stand-still. Both of my elder sisters are going to university, however my second sister has put her study aside and gone to work, giving the opportunity of a good education to her younger siblings. My younger brother is going to university next year and my younger sister is in Year 7. They are too young and they have a long future ahead. I cannot image what is ahead for us. There are some times I want to give up on everything however I know the only thing I should do at the moment is to study well with the belief of a better future ahead.

Growing up in a difficult situation has helped me be aware of the importance of study, made me more mature, more independent and know more about myself. During my study process, I have made a lot of effort to achieve what I have today. At the moment I am studying General Medicine to continue my dream of becoming a doctor who will heal people. Furthermore, my big dream is to become an international volunteer doctor who can travel to everywhere in the world with my team to cure patients, especially in remote areas where the medical facilities are difficult to access. That is my passion and my dream, however now it has become one of the burdens that my siblings and I must face. I looked for a scholarship to help ease the burden on my family, to support them to overcome this difficult stage, and also to find good opportunities for myself.

I still remember the day when I received the scholarship interview results. I felt very emotional and was so happy to see the relieved smile on my parents’ face because from now on they no longer have to worry about me and my study. I am happy to know that there are people who care in this life and I don’t have to fight alone. On my journey, I have met people who love and put their trust in me. This is the motivation, the invaluable material and spiritual support for my family and me and I have a strong belief that I can overcome the difficult path ahead.

The support from your scholarship will help me to focus on my study, broaden my knowledge and get closer to my targets. The scholarship money will be used to pay for my university fees, my living expenses, my study documents, supplies and also pay for the classes and courses to develop myself. At the scholarship presentation event, I also received a new laptop which was such a surprise. I am very delighted and grateful for that and the laptop is supporting me a lot in my study. The scholarship is a huge motivation for me to continue to complete myself and make more effort to achieve better results to be worthy of your expectations. Your caring has fueled my hope for a beautiful life.

In the meantime, I want to send my sincerest thanks to Ms Karen and everyone at Lifestart Foundation. I wish you all good health, success and happiness in life and work. I hope your organization will develop more and more to be able to give more opportunities to those in need.

Goodbye,

Tran Thi Minh Luong.

AN ELECTRIC SCOOTER DONATION
What a wonderful donation from one of our generous expat supporters Beatrice.
This donation was given to Lifestart Foundation education scholarship student Dung.
Dung is a first year student at Danang University of Foreign Languages, majoring in English.
Prior to receiving the scooter, Dung did not have any transportation and had to borrow her friends' bike or ask them for a lift to travel to her classes.
Dung's parents are rice farmers with two more children to support so purchasing a scooter for Dung was not possible..
You can read more about Dung here:
