A Brighter Path Dream Meeting 2016

We would like to share some information about our annual Empowerment Workshop and Dream Meeting of our Brighter Path Program.

To provide hope for a brighter future and a break from the poverty cycle for ethnic minority girls in Vietnam, VinaCapital Foundation, in partnership with Vu A Dinh, a local Vietnamese scholarship organization, created A Brighter Path: Scholarships for Ethnic Minority Girls.

Since 2010, A Brighter Path has mentored and supported 47 disadvantaged ethnic minority girls with a unique 7 year scholarship and mentoring program.

Every year, VCF brings all the girls together for the Dream Meeting to engage them in workshops relevant to their personal and academic growth including career planning, good study habits, building self confidence, financial literacy and health and nutrition. As a result, the girls who arrived shy, scared and with very narrow horizons, now have confidence in their ability to succeed, much better world view and many opportunities for their career.

We are very happy all 47 girls completed the 7 years and are all in the process of graduating. Congratulations!
