We have a long history of supporting projects that enable children’s learning and growth. When children have the opportunity to learn, they can thrive, open new doors, and fuel future generations with the gift of literacy.
Inquisitive HeeYoung Choi is a ten-year-old third grader at Maam Elementary School. The library in her school was small, cramped, and tucked away inside the auditorium, making it hard for HeeYoung to go there and read.
Luckily, in September 2018, the Maam Elementary School library became the 22nd Nu Hope Library and got a much-needed makeover thanks to the Nu Skin Korea Force for Good Committee. The newly renovated library is a fun, brightly colored, creative reading space, which boasts 940 new books. Plus, the old bookshelves, desks, and chairs were replaced, making the library a safe, welcoming place.
HeeYoung comes to the new library every day after school to read. She said, “Thanks to the committee, I have a dream to be a teacher… I will read the books donated by the committee and study hard. The 22nd Nu Hope Library enables me to have bigger dreams.” The sky’s the limit for HeeYoung.
Chikondi struggled to pay for his education because of his family’s difficult financial situation and was about to withdraw after his first year. Fortunately, Educate the Children (ETC) provided him with the funding he needed to finish school at the African Bible College. Able to focus on his studies, Chikondi maintained excellent grades and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Education.
Because of his hard work and good GPA, Chikondi earned another scholarship from Rise Malawi Ministries and completed his Master’s degree in organizational leadership. He’s now a Youth Dream Center director.
Chikondi traces much of his success back to the financial support ETC provided. With their help, he achieved his dream and is happy to be a role model for local children and teens—especially those near his hometown. This is just the beginning of Chikondi’s accomplishments and influence for good.
Dorothy is a bright, inspiring, passionate young woman. Because she is just one of nine children, her parents couldn’t afford to send her to secondary school. She almost gave up on her dream of becoming a nurse.
That’s when she turned to Education the Children (ETC) for help. The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation provides 100 percent of the scholarship funds for ETC program and, with their financial boost, Dorothy finished her education and secured a job as a nurse technician at Madisi Mission Hospital in Malawi. Because of her determination and education, Dorothy will continue to make a difference in her community.
