Techno tutoring for young girls in Vietnam

Targeted educational and IT support for girls in rural areas

Beneficiaries — 20 young girls

Following last year’s pilot program, the organization hopes to implement a program for 20 girls by offering adapted computer tutoring with teachers in preparation for the end-of-term exams. Through this program, young girls will be able to become more aware of technology, review academic subjects and thus better prepare for exams. This lack of support in Vietnam encourages girls to drop out of school. In partnership, we want to encourage and promote school, because every girl counts!

This project will provide 20 girls from the villages of Son Tan and Suoi Cat in Khanh Hoa Province, Vietnam, with a life skills and competencies development program supported by tutoring in preparation for the end-of-term exams, which are of great importance in Vietnam. This support program will promote self-esteem, empowerment, and the importance of education for girls through the proper use of new computer technologies.

Partnership Give a Hand and Rock-Paper-Scissors in Vietnam

Rock-Paper-Scissors Children’s Fund was founded in 2012 by Sara Nerone and her two daughters, Sophie, and Phoebe, both adopted in Vietnam. Following the death of her husband Chris in 2011, Sara and her daughters volunteered to teach music and art classes at an organization in Vietnam, and it was during this trip that the idea to start Rock-Paper-Scissors Children’s Fund was born. As soon as they returned to the United States, the little family decided to continue its mission, by setting up the organization to support artistic projects for the underprivileged children of Vietnam. Since 2016, Give a Hand is proud to have carried out several projects in concert with the Rock-Paper-Scissors Children’s Fund.

Music and art to build trust in ourselves, that’s what drives us.

Rock Paper Scissors Children's Fund

The Rock-Paper-Scissors organisation is led by women at heart, Sara Nerone and her two daughters, Sophie, and Phoebe. A story that has been going on for many years and that allows hundreds and hundreds of Vietnamese children to go to school thanks to beautiful pink bicycles that are offered free of charge to the poorest girls in the regions of Khanh Hoa and Thua Thien Hue in Vietnam. Music and art programs are also offered to hundreds of children thanks to the tenacity and hard work of Sara, her daughters, and many volunteers each year.
