Vo Minh Loc, a 7th-grade student, was born into a struggling family of five. Additionally, his cousin, abandoned by her parents, lives with Loc’s family. The entire household grapples with numerous challenges and struggles to make ends meet. The family’s primary income stems from Loc’s stepfather, who works as a fisherman. However, this income is insufficient to adequately support the family and cover the children’s education expenses. They often resort to borrowing money to afford educational necessities, such as second-hand textbooks and uniforms, as the new school year approaches.
A scholarship sponsorship would serve as a powerful motivator and provide Minh Loc with the opportunity to consistently attend school, breaking the cycle of financial hardship that the family is currently facing.
