Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's...

Back to school we go!

Thirteen year old Duong was a runaway when we met him in Hanoi 18 months ago. He'd escaped a tough family situation, and although we tried to get the family back together Duong ended up living in our residence and joining our Link program.

But on Feb 14, Duong will go back to school - something he told us he would never do. It's been a difficult decision for him and he'll need lots of support, but here's hoping we can make this a success!

Chuc mung Nam moi to all at BDCF. And congratulations to Duong - good luck to him.

Like the new look blog- very professional!

Adults sometimes also say they would never do...but they may change their mind. Perhaps kids are more determined than adults 'cause they have more time and chances ahead.
Duong is really a SPECIAL boy. He can feel how his adult friends feel.
