Education for the Poor is a non-profit organization that provides English language and phonetic training to the poor and impoverished people of Vietnam. With multinational companies investing billions of dollars in Vietnam\'s economy, being fluent in English is essential to help these children and young adults break the cycle of poverty and become competitive in the growing job market. I learned about this organization through a former volunteer,and although I felt deeply unqualified at first, I decided to apply because I felt the passion I had to help, mixed with the skills and knowledge I possessed were enough to qualify. My application was accepted, I was interviewed and I was offered one of the few open positions!
The organization provides room and board but airfare is left to the volunteers to come up with. Unfortunately, I don\'t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of, so I turn to you, my loving friends and family. I\'m going to live off ramen noodles for awhile to put in as much as I can but any small contribution you can make would be greatly appreciated. And please also email me your mailing address at [email redacted] so I can send you a special thank you. Thanks again, and TÃ´i yÃªu báº¡n!
