Be A Guardian

I. About the programme The Be a Guardian Programme is the brainchild of ECO Vietnam Group, and one of its largest and most long-tem projects. This programme aims to sponsor the education of bright and capable Vietnamese children facing financial difficulties with the help of individual or corporate donors. 2011 marks the pioneer year of this project. Starting small, the project now aims at supporting 9th Grade students graduating from Gia Bac Secondary School in the Gia Bac Commune, Di Linh District, Lam Dong Province, Vietnam. The long-term objective, however, is to support indigent but academically gifted students all over Vietnam. The programme takes on a 3-step approach:



II. The reason of creating this project

The BAG Programme has been set up in Gia Bac, Vietnam, where it will help to see children through education. Owing to government efforts, children in Gia Bac receive basic schooling at the local school for free. However, this level of education (up till Grade 9) is insufficient for Gia Bac students to qualify for university and obtain a degree that would help pull their families out of generations-old poverty. To do so, children have to be allowed to continue high school in the nearby Di Linh town, whereupon they would begin studying for university entrance exams. Gia Bac families are more often than not too poor to send their children off to school in Di Linh town, and the inadequate schooling they receive in the village leaves them mired in poverty. Some parents thus view education as a burden rather than a privilege, for if their education is not enough to grant them university admission and thus greater employability out of the village, in townships or cities, it makes more economic sense for students to drop out of school to work instead of studying. The “Be a Guardian” Programme therefore steps in to empower students with the funds they need to attend school in Di Linh town, thereby helping them secure a brighter future. The presence of such a programme would also alter the attitudes toward education in the village, for parents would be able to view education as a merit rather than a burden. This would allow parents to aspire for further education for their children, creating a conducive learning environment in the village.

BAG’s members, in corporation with sponsors, will solve educational issues in Gia Bac village, to help people there have better and brighter future.

  1. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog stand out. Please
    let me know where you got your theme. With thanks

    • Helo. Thank you for your compliment. But which theme are you referring to, since the theme of our website is just entirely 1 Gold color, which we selected in the default settings in the first place ?
      If you’re talking about the arrangement of the menu, then it’s kinda custome made, since we only work on the features that wordpress provided.
      Hope this is helpful for you :)

  2. Having read this I believed it was really enlightening. I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put
    this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time
    both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  3. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this excellent blog!

    I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS
    feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share this site with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  4. One of the main misconceptions about glass is that it
    is rather dull with practically no privacy. With all
    the new advances in technology- that is simply just not the case anymore.

    Over the years, glass manufacturers have come up with various types of
    glass like double glazed windows and patterned glass.
    You can use glass doors for your bathroom, patio and other places at your house to give your home an ultramodern or elegant look and feel.

    So you do not have to worry about the glass being dull or plain. Purchasing glass that has etched designs of nature like flowers and trees or any other categories based on your personal taste is possible nowadays.

    So finding the right kind of glass to blend with other
    furnishings in a particular room is indeed possible.

    There is no shortage of choices in terms of glass design. 

    Another benefit of glass is in terms of insulation.
    Glass is not a good conductor of heat. During our hot summer season, with all the advances in energy
    efficiency with glass, glass will not absorb heat, making
    the room hotter. During a winter or autumn period, glass
    will not cause much heat loss. 

    So you and your family might enjoy a more cooling effect during summer and
    a warmer effect during winter or autumn. You also save money in terms of utility
    bills. Since there is less heat loss, you can turn down the heating system to a lower temperature, which results in less
    energy consumption. During summer, there would not be any necessity to lower the temperature. 

    Another benefit of using glass doors and windows is
    that it just makes your home brighter and more
    cheerful feeling. With our famous sunny days, there might be no necessity to switch on lights to light up a particular place since
    there is sufficient natural light.
