As the bread winner of the family, and despite constant ill health, Thao's mother has worked in many jobs to make a living. She is currently working as an assistant at a food stall near their house.
Thao has been under our Sponsorship Program since 2001.
She successfully passed the entrance exam to study Accountancy at a higher learning institute. She worked part-time throughout her studies at a health and nutrition company. Due to her diligence, hard work and good exam grades she was offered a full-time position by the company on completion of her studies. Her probation salary is well above the average Vietnamese monthly wage of US$185; a terrific start to her career.
Thao is really happy with her new job and told us she is looking forward to her graduation ceremony at her college in October.
We wish Thao the very best of luck for her future.
