Small Family Big Love

BETOAJI launched the program "Small family - Big love" to sponsor Western North children.

Tua Chua is a poor district of Dien Bien province, in which Trung Thu and Sin Chai are the two poorest villages.In good weather, it takes 3-4 hours from the 6th National Highway to Trung Thu, and 5 hours from Sin Chai. At the two villages’ nursery schools, children have to attend boarding classes since their homes are often too far away from school. As there is no officially supported meal after class, they usually bring along rice from their household and the teachers do a favor of cookingthe dinner for them. But as poverty is the common condition of most household there, their meals usually are only rice with salt and wild vegetables pick from the nearby wood. From March 2013, through the program "Only Rice is Not Enough", BETOAJI have supported 41 children at Trung Thu nursery school. But in Sin Chai and other provinces, children still have to takeundernutritious meals with no meat, as well as having insufficient clothing and minimum school supplies in the mountain’s cold. As a result, BETOAJI launched the program "Small family - Big love"to call for donators and supporters who are willing to become guarantor, creating small warm families for those children in our BETOAJI big family. With 500 yen or 120,000 VND, you can join with BETOAJI for supporting 1 child for a month. We hope that the number of children receiving support will gradually increase and BETOAJI family will grow bigger and bigger to spread joy and happiness!

Program content:

- Guarantors: BETOAJI volunteers and other donors.

- Adopted children: Those of nursery schools of Trung Thu, Sin Chai and other wards of Tua Chua districts, Dien Bien province in the program "Only Rice is Not Enough" in Vietnam.

- Time and supporting wages:guarantors commit to support 500 Yen (or 120,000 VND) per month/child for at least 12 months starting from April 2013. The number of children for each supporter is not limited.

- BETOAJI together with the program "Only Rice is Not Enough" will provide basic information of the children as well as create and maintain contactbetween guarantors and their children. BETOAJI plans to hold BETOAJI Big Family party every June in order to offer exchange and sharing opportunities, together with direct visits of guarantors to their children.

With the program "Small family - Big love", we hope that the more love sent, the more happy little souls there will be!
