The Theme

We have chosen our theme – “From Sparks to Fire” to align with the vision of our philanthropy this year. Although all children have the potential in them for a great life, the odds are especially against less fortunate ones in Vietnam who by law are forced out of orphanages at the age of 18 without the proper education/resources/means to develop those sparks. The Kids Without Borders “Teach Me How to Fish” project aims to provide scholarships and resources to those orphans to blossom into fully fledged professionals passionate to continue fueling the fire of community and humanitarianism so desperately needed.

Also VEX is always fiyaaaaah
