CanCham Charity Golf Tournament to Promote Ethnic Minority Girls' Education
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Vietnam's 15th Annual CSR Golf Open Tournament will be held on May 13 at Dong Nai Golf Resort to help change the lives of ethnic minority girls.
Held by VinaCapital and the CanCham, this novelty 18-hole golf tournament will allow golfers to all have a fun day of four-ball scramble golf together on the course with food, drinks, and prizes.
The players can both register by team or individually. If you register individually, the tournament committee will put you on a team.
Especially, all profits raised from the CSR Golf Open event will be contributed to VinaCapital Foundation's Brighter Path program.
Brighter Path Program is designed to reduce poverty in Vietnam where it is endemic by empowering bright disadvantaged rural ethnic minority girls through education and training.
Since 2021, through the CanCham CSR Golf Open, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Vietnam has donated USD 5,622 (equivalent to over VND 129 million) to the VinaCapital Foundation's Brighter Path Program, to provide scholarships to ethnic minority students in the school year of 2020-2021.
Brighter Path, in cooperation with Vu A Dinh, a Vietnamese non-profit organization, finds the brightest and most committed rural ethnic female minority students across Vietnam, starting in 9th grade and provides them with full 7-year scholarships, personal mentoring, life skills and empowerment training.
Beneficiaries will engage in workshops relevant to their personal and academic growth, including financial literacy, sexual and reproductive health, leadership and other essential skills in order to increase their self-esteem, provide more resources and opportunities to access education and personal development, enabling them to control their own lives first and become “ game changers” in their communities. The girls are also exposed to exemplary Vietnamese women who mentor and inspire them.
