Orphan Impact equips disadvantaged students with the critical thinking and technology skills they need to succeed in the future. Orphan Impact has already trained over 600 Vietnamese children in 20 different orphanages. $48,000 of this year’s grant will go toward expanding the program in Vietnam to 10 more orphanages, bringing the total to 30.
The international expansion of the program will enable Orphan Impact to establish computer classes in 2 Chinese migrant schools. The pilot program will be started in Shanghai in partnership with Stepping Stones. Stepping Stones is a nonprofit charitable organization with a mission to improve the education and welfare of underprivileged children in China.
