Every year Sunflower Mission works hard to implement our 4 scholarship programs. These programs include:
SAS (Sponsor a Student)
Dao-Le Scholarship (K-12)
Engineering and Technology Scholarship
Each scholarship program is designed to assist students based on different parameters in order to reach as many students as possible.
Our most visible work is our school building program. We have built over 165 classrooms in cooperation with local communities who have also committed to partnering with us. Our interest is long-term, thus we have also implemented a maintenance program for our schools.
Every year an excited and varied group of individuals travel to Vietnam to participate in our work camp. The trip includes visiting school sites to complete construction; participating in school completion ceremonies; engaging with students; and cultural exchanges. We begin signing up volunteers 6-7 months prior to the work camp.
As Sunflower Mission grows we realize there are many factors involved with ensuring academic success in our students. We have deliberately expanded our programs to include the Health & Hygiene Education Initiative (HHEI) and the English Initiative (EI).
