Help us to open new Change Houses, set up our Change Libraries, and improve our organization!
Through our Empowerment Plan program, we are currently working with countless single mothers and victims of domestic violence. As our organization has been growing and receiving more exposure, we have had a flood of applications from women who would like to participate in our program and move to our safe houses; yet unfortunately, we don’t have enough resources to accommodate all of them. As of right now, one of our greatest and most important challenges is to open more Change Houses in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi – the two largest cities in Vietnam, where single mothers usually choose to restart their lives. Beyond that, we hope to expand our Elsa and Rose program to better train single mothers with vocational skills and help them to support themselves.
As part of our Teach for Change program, we are also running English classes for children throughout the country, which spreads our efforts across several provinces and takes up a lot of our manpower and resources. Yet there is still a long way to go for English education, and there is still so much we want to do, including opening one or more Change Libraries for children in multiple provinces. A library would give these disadvantaged children from hardworking Vietnamese families the opportunity to broaden their knowledge, gain more comprehensive perspectives, and learn beyond what is taught in public schools.
To accomplish all of our goals, we need your help. Elsa and Rose is looking to hire Design and Marketing staff in order to improve its products and expand the brand; if you feel that you fit the criteria for a design/marketing staff, please contact us and we will respond to you accordingly! Teach for Change is always looking for more teachers/volunteers, for which you can read application requirements in the Teach for Change section of this website.
Additionally (and just as importantly), Coins for Change requests for donations, if possible; with the necessary funds, we will be able to open more Change Houses more quickly and of better quality, provide our single mothers and their children with resources and items to ease their hardships, and open multiple Change Libraries to improve the quality of education for children across the country. No amount is too small; anything is appreciated!
Thank you so much for your support! Any donation and contribution helps us to change Vietnam!
