When meeting the families of two children, Tuan Hung and Bao Han, the Foundation realized that their situation was too difficult. The fact that her father took a wheelchair to take care of his paralyzed mother, then went to sell lottery tickets to pay for his daily life was an extraordinary effort, so the Foundation decided to help the two children so that they could go to school, later grew up to be talented in taking care of his parents.

The two children are studying at Tan Thien Primary school and Secondary school. The father has suffered from leg muscle atrophy since childhood. He moves about with his two hands and uses a wheelchair. He sells lottery tickets. The mother has suffered from many serious diseases (such as epilepsy, heart disease, sepsis) and is currently hemiplegic. She lies in one place and is unable to work. The 80-year-old grandmother also sells lottery tickets to help with the two children’s education.
Stop funding scholarships because 2 children are too young to be eligible to receive the “Change the Future” scholarship.
Parents are divorced, 2 children live with their mother, the mother’s health is weak, she works as a hired laborer but cannot pay for her 2 children’s education. 2 children have to work part-time to pay for their own meals, accommodation, and school fees. The situation is very difficult.
Stop funding scholarships!
“My shoes on the field – your shoes to school” is an association football tournament for companies and benefactors. It is held by the Be Better Foundation with the purpose of raising fund to buy shoes for poor students in remote areas.
“Living in the city all these years, I cannot not imagine that poverty is still harshly present in such remote places. There are places where children do not have enough food to eat, their parents can only dig into the ground and in their garden for something edible to feed their children to school.”
Be Better Foundation implements the campaign to build a book library for poor students in remote areas with the hope that “Books will inspire them to have a dream”, “a dream that can change a life”, ”Changing one child’s life will change many generations in the future”
The long-term scholarship program “Bring children to school” which supports financing tuition fees and living expenses for students with extremely difficult circumstances is the core and continuous program of Be Better Foundation.
