Before Thanh got involved with the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation and the DUC project, she was at risk of being forced to give up her studies altogether, despite being the brightest student in her class due to her parents poor financial situation. Now, she has finished fourth grade and is committed to continuing her studies to help break the poverty cycle. Her family lives on a basic income of $260 per month, so naturally the help and support from the Foundation and the school packs provided by the DUC project have made an incredible difference to Thanh’s life and give her the tools to create her own bright future.
