2017 Winners Film: APEC – Tran Ngoc Thanh Truc

  • By Tran Ngoc  Thanh Truc · Vietnam, APEC

Last year, Tran Ngoc Thanh Truc showed us the remarkable volunteer work she undertakes with Nhung Uoc Mo Xanh Children’s Charity (‘Blue Dreams’). As our 1st place Regional Winner for Asia Pacific, we were inspired by her story and wanted to learn more…
 
Born into a poor family, Truc became stuck, and without the support from others she would have been unable to continue her education. Now with a better life and stable job at DHL, Truc is passionate about paving the way to a better life for disadvantaged children in Vietnam: “I believe education is the only way to have a better life and escape poverty”. As a volunteer Truc teaches English and improves communications skills of disadvantaged children, and in 2017 we visited her to tell her story…
 
After winning DHL’s Got Heart, Truc and ‘Blue Dreams’ aimed to reach out to more disadvantaged children, to change lives and change futures using DHL’s donation. We returned to Vietnam 6 months on to see how the money is being spent, watch our revisit with Truc here
