According to statistics from the Ministry of Education and Training, an average of 200,000 student drops out every year. Most of them are living in mountainous areas where living conditions and circumstances are difficult. In addition to the fact that they have to drop out of school because their families are too poor, while other children still go to school but their living conditions are extremely poor. Simple dreams such as needing a new uniform on the first day of school, a full set of school supplies, or a bicycle to go to school… not everyone can have it.
In that context, with the message "When millions small dreams need a big gesture", the program not only realizes tens of thousands of small dreams of studious students but also calls on the community and organizations to, individuals join hands to power millions of other studious dreams across Vietnam.
“There have been many organizations and individuals that have implemented study promotion activities, but there are still many students who have to drop out of school halfway or go to school but in poor conditions. In that context, the program "Because I am studious" was born with a commitment to last for 10 years, which is a practical and meaningful activity."
Ms. Nguyen Thi Nghia - Former Deputy Minister of Education and Training
"The program will last for 10 years and we hope other helpers will join hands with Viettel to make this program replicated across the country."
Major General Le Dang Dung - Acting Chairman and General Director of Viettel Group
"Despite the difficult situation, every one among us has a dream and it is the timely support of the "Vì em hiếu học" Scholarship Fund that encourages poor students like us to overcome self-doubt, keep dreaming and rise in life”
