We won!!! We won!!! Allan A Greenleaf won the most incredible opportunity – a chance to visit and see UNICEF schools in Lao Cai province in Viet Nam.
In the spring, Greenleaf participated in the World Education Games (WEG) – a three day event of spelling, math and science mental battles on a world stage. All our computers in the schools were hopping! Students raced home to make sure that they stayed ahead… it was INCREDIBLE.
While we were fortunate enough to join in this global event – WEG recognized that there are many, many children who do not have access to an education. So, they teamed up with UNICEF and their “School in the Box” programme to encourage those of us who have access to a solid education to donate to others.
All the schools who participated were put in a lottery to win a chance to go to Vietnam and see our donations at work…
Two students, a parent for each and myself are embarking on this trip of a lifetime – flying across the world to meet other children! We would like to thank WEG for giving us this opportunity – and UNICEF for hosting us! We are thrilled to be able to go and experience the rich culture of Viet Nam – and as we are traveling around the world on a whirlwind tour, we have extended the trip over the weekends to include more of the sights in Hanoi, Viet Nam and Hong Kong, China.
Please follow the blogs that Danielle and Eoin will update regularly to catch a glimpse of life in Hanoi and Lao Cai, Vietnam and Hong Kong, China. On this blog, you will find background information of the places we’re visiting. Please post comments and questions, and we will do our best to answer them. Thanks for sharing in our adventures!
