Overview of the program

In January 2012, Ket Doan Association officially launched the Save a Child project. The purpose of this project is to provide financial support to impoverished children in Vietnam. Ket Doan Association and our partners will establish and maintain a year-long commitment to each individual. To ensure the dedicated resources are effectively utilized, the Association will require bi-monthly progress reports during the year long sponsorship. The sponsorship can be renewed on a yearly basis which is dependent on the progress and need of the child. Our goal is to build a successful program that will generate more funding in hopes of expanding our program to sponsor more individuals.

Organization and children selection process

Ket Doan Association sent out a proposal to several nonprofit organizations expressing our interest in the child sponsorship program. After receiving positive responses from the various organizations, we decided to partner with Love Across the Ocean (LATO). We decided to collaborate with LATO because their program was able to meet our requirements. Since then, LATO has provided us with a list of children, from age 6-18 along with their background information. We are pleased to announce the selection of two highly deserving children from the list. The selections were based on their financial and family situations as well as their exemplary status in school.
