Nguyen Phuong Mai

Project Coordinator

As a project coordinator of a volunteering organization, I have chances to visit lots of different places in mountainous areas in the north of Vietnam. At those places, I meet local people with a low living standard. I also meet lots of kids facing very poor studying conditions such as punk schools or schools which are lacking books. I realize that I am more fortunate and I should do something to help them. Becoming a member of Volunteers For Education (VFE), I want to support more children in remote areas to have better studying conditions. I believe that education is the most effective way to improve the standard of living for the poor and disadvantaged people in my country.

There is a quote that says: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
