Here’s my update for the Vietnam Education Initiative:

I am happy to report that 4 students have graduated in their respective programs:
1. Yen completed his H-Vac training in Ho Chi Minh City in November 2019 and moved back to his hometown. He is living at home with his family, working in his chosen field of study, and happy to share he has a girlfriend.
2. Tai completed his Chef’s Training in January and was working at a well known buffet chain restaurant BBQ King in Ho Chi Minh City, until COVID-19. He has moved back to his home village to live with his mom.
3. Linh graduated in June with a degree in accounting from a university in Hanoi.
4. Khai graduated in June with a degree in Law from a university in Hanoi. 

Vietnam implemented strict COVID restrictions and mandatory quarantine in mid-January. Schools were closed from mid-January until early June. All 15 remaining students are back in school attending classes in person.  

A big thank you to all sponsors for your continued support of each of these students.
