Weekly Update from the Executive Director, Michael Roberts [27 September 2018]

Dear Members and Friends,

Tomorrow dozens of teams across Vietnam will tee off in the 6th AusCham Grand Final Charity Golf Scramble, with proceeds from all events going to Loreto Vietnam. Loreto Vietnam is an Australian INGO that focuses on capacity building in Vietnam by directly addressing UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goal #4: Quality Education. By facilitating equitable access to quality education through the building of classrooms, libraries, safe toilets, computer rooms and multipurpose rooms in schools that cannot otherwise afford such facilities, Loreto Vietnam exists to empower children in southern Vietnam’s most underprivileged contexts. Loreto Vietnam also distributes school packs (containing school uniforms, shoes, stationary sets, exercise books etc), educational resources, bicycles and helmets, as well as scholarships, to children identified by local education partners as critically in need.

Loreto Vietnam is supported by a small but dedicated team, and an equally dedicated board of high profile educators and business people who are really making a difference to the lives of less fortunate children. The AusCham Board voted unanimously to support Loreto Vietnam through this major charity event. For more information about Loreto Vietnam, and to make personal donations go to www. http://loretovietnam.org

Kind regards

Michael Roberts
Executive Director
