One of Hue Help’s activities that we take special pride in is the improvement of education for the children in our shelter. We are fully aware that education is the best way for disadvantaged children to improve their future prospects. With that in mind, we hire tutors to come to the shelter to teach the children the official school subjects, such as Math, Physics, Chemistry, and English.
Before and throughout each school year we work closely with the tutors to exchange information about the classes and the students so as to assure the best possible results for all involved.
This school year we are happy to report some very encouraging results! One student in particular, Truong, passed his entry exam to Thua Thien Hue College of Education. This is a great sign and we hope that many more of our kids will follow Truong into universities in the near future.
Besides the academic subjects, we also hold classes that help the children physically, such as swimming and kung fu classes. Engaging in extracurricular activities such as these gives the children an opportunity to relax after working hard in school as well as giving them exercise to improve their health.
In the future Hue Help will hold courses on life skills, such as emotional control, communication, confidence-building, creative problem solving, listening and sharing, time management, safety, and effective study skills. These courses will offer the children the basic knowledge necessary to be successful as they apply their education toward achieving their dreams.
