Builds a school playground at a remote village in central 
Last month, we had the privilege of having an Aussie youth team from Hope City Church visit us to build a school playground at a remote village in central Vietnam. The dedicated group also taught the students about road safety, nutrition and hygiene through our Life Skills program. It’s so inspiring to see teenagers give up their school holidays and travel to Vietnam to invest into the lives of these kids, who wanted their new Aussie friends to stay!
Empowering people, transforming communities
CityLife Church in Wollongong is committed to seeing the community they adopted transformed. Every year they come, roll their sleeves up and get actively involved. This year they worked with locals to prepare a veggie garden in readiness for training up little green thumbs. This program lowers malnutrition rates among kindergarten kids and introduces them to sustainable farming skills which is reaping a harvest of benefits in rural central Vietnam.In one kindergarten alone we have seen 22 children being classed as malnourished (10.1%) at the start of the school year to only one child being malnourished by the year’s end (0.45%) despite the increase in enrolment numbers by 100 children. 
“The digging is done and trees transplanted. Thanks AOGWR DaNang team. Awesome times together with community,”

Empowering kids
In the lead up to International Children's Day, we asked some kids 2 questions: "What change do you want to see in the world?" and "How do you want to help people?"
Kids - What Change Do You Want to See in the                                                      World?
Tomorrow's Leaders
We are forever grateful to you our friends and partners who journey with us to see lives whole, as we empower people and transform communities.
Love Paul and Deb xx
