Giggles and inquisitive smiles,

the serious concentration of a child trying to locate the correct keys on the  keyboard,

excited cries over a marbles game in the dirt,

the laughter of children riding home from school together on their bikes,

……are all positive images which come to mind from recent visits to schools in the provinces in which Loreto Kids Charity works.

As I commence as Executive Director at Loreto Kids Charity I am excited by the positive impacts I see Loreto make in the lives of these children through our education programs. I come to Loreto having previously worked in refugee resettlement and cross-cultural contexts, as a social worker, migration agent, and in various capacities in education as a teacher and manager. I have been living in Vietnam for 7 years, during which time I spent time as a Loreto volunteer tutor at the School for the Blind.

Education is key to enabling opportunities and Loreto continues to be committed to ensuring that children from acutely disadvantaged and remote backgrounds are supported to reach their potentials, and move beyond the poverty or difficulties they may currently be in.

The Loreto team and I look forward to sharing the next stage of Loreto Kids Charity’s journey with you as supporters. We invite you to read our current report about our activities and to complete our online survey.
