VAPA Sponsorship Program
Helping disadvantaged kids get ahead
VAPA’s sponsorship program aims to provide scholarships and other free learning opportunities for disadvantaged kids, to the value of 100,000,000 vnd.
However, to achieve this goal we need your help!
Disadvantaged people live in every city, in every country, all over the world. And despite improvements throughout Vietnam, Hoi An is no different.
It is increasingly difficult for disadvantaged kids to access upper secondary education. For those children, the arts offer the chance to learn soft skills that will open doors, and improve their chances of gaining well-paid work.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
British politician, army officer, and writer, Winston S. Churchill
VAPA is not a registered charity, however, we do operate under a hybrid business model. That is to say that the profit raised from our paid services is used to grow our organisation and fund programs for disadvantaged people.
So then why give, you ask?
The answer is simple…
To remain accessible to people with less means, we keep the cost of our regular classes low. With your help, we can:
- Develop our scholarship program to include even more hours of free learning and mentoring.
- Diversify our awards to reach kids with a broader range of artistic skill sets.
- Introduce more free learning opportunities to enrich the Hoi An community!
The arts can and should be enjoyed by everyone. To support VAPA’s sponsorship program is to invest in the physical, emotional and economic well-being of a truly great community.
