THE TRAIL and PATHWAY of 2014

As we approach the end of 2014 – we can look back and look forward……

“but remembering, nothing comes without a price……….:

our paths are not mapped – they’re made”.

Loreto’s pathway this year truly has been made with many exhilarating  successes – particularly as we have completed innumerable new projects and have begun several others as well. More than ever before - we have focused on and highlighted the abilities of our many schools’ partners to ‘take the lead’ after our initial support..

It’s impossible to gauge the actual total distance the Loreto Team have travelled this year – but the seeds we have sown in very, very remote areas have sprouted into positive spotlights of vigorous educational prospects for the great little kids in our care.

THANK YOU to the mighty Loreto Team: Ha My, Tam, Trang, Tin and Ms. Mai! You have all sown, watered, tendered and harvested Loreto’s educational support for thousands of kids in Vietnam!

Supporters – donors – friends - thanks for travelling the 2014 pathway with us too. Christmas Blessings to each and all and Best Wishes for 2015.

    CHILLY SWIMMING DAYS

    Commendations must go to our swimming students from Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for the Blind, plus our wonderful volunteers – for braving the cold water (in these days, early morning temperatures in HCMC are as low as 18 degrees) – and continuing their swimming lessons!

    INCREDIBLE ‘BOX OF HOPE’ FOR THE KIDS

    A clear blue sky with stunning sunlight signaled an amazing journey awaiting us at the Center of Support and Development of Integrated Education for Children with Disabilities on Tuesday 23rd December. We were warmly welcomed by Mr. Tam – the Principal and hundreds of bashful kids sitting next to their parents and teachers with eyes wide open watching the guests they have never met before.
