V3 performed at the fund raiser for the Vietnamese Education Society held at the Mulgrave School in West Vancouver on April 16, 2011. The evening was to support BC adoptive families build schools in rural Vietnam. The performance was called “Dua Be” aka “Little Child.”
This evening is hosted by Canadian families that have adopted children from Vietnam, and our many Vietnamese and other community friends. It is in support of our charity, the Vietnam Education Society, a registered Canadian non-profit that raises funds to build elementary schools and early childhood education centres in rural Vietnam. This is our way to give back for the gift of our children. Other than a few basic costs, 100% of the funds raised go towards the children and schools. In Vietnam, hundreds of thousands of children have limited access to basic education. In rural areas, schools are often in poor condition and are so crowded that students attend in two half-day shifts and sometimes only for a few years till they are often forced to leave to work.
