Using S.T.E.M. education to support orphans in Vietnam to prepare for their futures

www.kidspirevietnam.org Tax ID 93-1065518


Children in Vietnamese orphanages do not receive the support they need to overcome many challenges they face upon graduating from the orphanage. This results in thousands upon thousands of children ending up in jobs where they will be exploited in many different ways and unable to overcome the cycle of poverty that likely led to them entering the orphanage in the first place.

Since 2009 Kidspire has been on the ground in 30 Vietnamese orphanages, learning the needs of the children and learning how to best support them to be prepared for leaving the orphanage. This project is helping them to navigate their future opportunities by providing them with targeted skill development in digital and internet literacy, one to one mentoring, career planning, strategic internships, and a huge boost in the self-confidence they need to take steps towards their future.
