Wellington College has been fundraising for Blue Dragon over several years while Hutt International Boys School has made Blue Dragon the focus of its International Service programme.
So how did New Zealanders get involved with a children’s learning centre in Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam?
One of the first New Zealanders to see the difference that Blue Dragon is making to the lives of hundreds of children was Alison Kember, wife of James Kember, New Zealand Ambassador in Hanoi from 2006 to 2009.
Alison, a secondary school teacher, worked as a volunteer at Blue Dragon where she taught English to young Vietnamese women. Through Alison, several New Zealand schools started fundraising for Blue Dragon.
