With this page, you can get to know all of the children that you and your colleagues at M.T. Maritime are sponsoring! You can also send them an email (which will go to our country office, be translated by our team there, and will be shared with that sponsored child). We will also post updates every few months about the programs you help support, and make sure that you know about any developments. Enjoy getting to know your sponsored children!
Meet Bang from Vietnam
Bang, a 9-year-old from Vietnam is enrolled in Save the Children’s sponsorship program.
“I enjoy my school very much because I can learn new things and play games with my friends. My favorite games are cat-and-mouse, finding the leader and soccer,” Bang said.
Thanks to sponsors like M.T. Maritime, Bang’s school was able to update their latrines.
“The new latrine is clean and water is available. Before, we usually went up to the hill when we want to relieve ourselves, because the latrine was very old, dirty and dangerous…Going to the hill is very slippery, especially in rainy days,” he said. “We don’t need to care about that now. I like the new latrine very much.”
We are so grateful to our sponsors for the support they give to our sponsorship communities. Thanks to sponsor support, Bang also participates in programs that help him and his community with health, nutrition and safety. He enjoys telling his brothers about the things he learns at school, like how to brush their teeth, clean their hands and prevent accidents at home and school. He also receives a kits through his sponsorship programs, which includes hygiene items like soap, towels, shampoo and combs, and a nutrition kit with peanuts, cooking oil, fish and soup. “I know they are all very good for my health,” he said.
Last year, Bang’s school received books and reference materials through sponsorship. The books are gathered in main school site so every week, his teacher has to go there to borrow books for students. Bang said he “loves reading those books very much.”
Next year, Bang wishes to have a birthday party because he has never had one before. He also wants to help his parents with cooking and have more friends to play soccer with him. They are all simple wishes, but none can be done without health. With help from our generous sponsors like you, we can continue to support Bang and children just like him achieve their dreams and goals.
M.T. Martime & Save the Children Partnership
In January 2008, M.T. Maritime employees teamed up to raise money for a good cause – to support Save the Children’s child sponsorship programs to improve the life of children in need. What started out as a small gesture of generosity turned into a huge annual fundraiser, with M.T. Maritime employees around the world contributing funds so that the company can sponsor 49 children in 11 countries around the world. With their continued support, M.T. Maritime’s employees have enabled Save the Children to provide these children – and their schools, families, and communities – with life changing and lifesaving programs.
