During the scorching sun, everyone in the fishing village is busy fishing boats to earn a living. In a dilapidated house at the end of a sandy lane leading to the beach, Hang is cooking rice and frying eggs for her family’s lunch.
The father forgot his illness and taught his two children a lot.
Hang said that the day before she had gone to Nha Trang city to find a place to live in preparation to enroll in the finance and banking major at Nha Trang University. But renting near school is quite expensive, renting far from school means no car to get around, which makes Hang worried and anxious.
Six years ago, Hang’s parents divorced. Hang and her younger sister named Hoai (currently in 11th grade) live with their father, Mr. Le Duc Hoang, who suffers from a congenital disability, his left leg is deformed, he has cramps in his legs, and He has diabetes so he is ill. Anant. Yet that man is a source of support and life for the entire family.
Every day, Mr. Hoang dives to clean rented seafood cages, and earns 150,000 – 200,000 VND.
On days when no one hires him, he dives to catch snails and oysters to sell to earn extra money, as well as 600,000 VND monthly assistance amounting to more than 2 million for disabled people.
With this small amount of money, he spent economically, took care of the lives of his father and son, took care of the education of his two children, and saved a little to buy medicine.
Over the past 6 months, Mr. Hoang’s health has declined. There are days when people hire divers to clean the cages but they cannot go to work. Income decreased, making the already difficult life of father and son even more difficult.
Loving his father, Hang was determined to pursue a good education. You have always been an excellent student for 12 years. Being of school age and unable to do heavy work to help her father and earn extra income, Hang takes on all the household work.
After finishing her high school graduation exam, Hang went to look for a part-time job at a milk tea shop in her hometown. Over the past few months, you have also earned 3 million VND, relieving some of the burden on your father’s shoulders.
“Since the day my mother left, my father has forgotten about his illness and age, and is single-handedly taking charge of the life of father and son. Now that I am going to college, the cost of the first semester It’s much bigger than that, and I don’t know where to find it.” , I still have a few more years before I finish school. And then my sister, who will go to college next year.
I don’t know if I can afford it alone. I also have some plans, when I enroll in school, I will try to find a part-time job to take care of some of my expenses” – Have faith.
To raise money to take care of his two daughters’ education, Mr. Hoang borrowed ¥30 million under a poverty alleviation program and bought cows to help raise his sister. So far, Hang has passed the university entrance examination, but the loan has not been paid off yet.
He said he planned to borrow more for Hang to cover startup costs, and he had two cows left to sell if he had trouble handling them.
University path and achievements
The Hang sisters’ study in the house is a folding table several inches wide, tucked neatly next to the kitchen. Books are kept neatly in the corner of the cupboard. Hange looked at the old, moldy curtains and said that because the bedroom was too small, she should take it outside to study, which was brighter and more spacious and comfortable.
Thanks to his hard work, diligence and perseverance over the years, Hang has passed the entrance examinations to several universities in Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City. But since circumstances did not allow it, you had to give up the idea of going to a big school and choose Finance and Banking at Nha Trang University.

I hope the society will support me so that Hang has the opportunity to continue his educational dream” – Ms Nga said.
