At the ceremony, on behalf of families with children admitted to the Center – Ms. Cao Thi Dinh (Trung Son village, Tinh Hai commune) emotionally shared: “NSRP funding came in a timely manner at the most difficult time of my family. It not only helps reduce the economic burden on my shoulders, but also brings valued opportunity for my grandchild to have a brighter future. I did not complete grade 5, so I could not help my grandchild in her studying as well as not having time to teach her about good habits and relevant behaviors in life. Sending her to the Center, she will be cared and loved well both for mental and physical sides by teachers while other children in the Center will help her in studying and other life skills. I strongly believe that she will become better, more intellectual and has a brighter future”.
Speaking at the ceremony, representatives of the District People’s Committee, WT and families expressed their gratitude to NSRP and advised all kids to obey the Center’s regulations, regular physical training and achieve highest studying performance to make a solid preparation for the future. Ms. Do Thi Thu Ha expressed the belief that NSRP grant will help orphaned and disadvantaged children to achieve a brighter future for themselves and their families.
