Linh Nguyen's post on Goodwall - Lao Cai. February 2021. Girl to School. There was an unsound custom in some mountainous areas of Vietnam: Girls had to drop education at the age of 16 and got married. I believed that this occurred due to the lack of birth knowledge and heavy financial burhden. They believed that education served no mean to ease their burden. I and my friends organized Girl to School project to educate girls and to subsidize money to those family in need so they didn’t have to force their girls to go to work early.
