Vītols Fund goal is to help clever and diligent young people from low income families to study in universities of Latvia. Already 17 years the Fund provides monthly scholarships by attracting donations from companies, individuals, organizations and former scholarship receivers.
The cooperation with charity organization “Ziedot.lv” started in 2008 when the project “Friends Scholarship” was established. This project gives an opportunity to help young persons in need during their education process. Donations are made honoring our loved ones in special occasions (birthdays, weddings), in memoriam of someone close to us. A lot of the persons that submit donations within “Friends Scholarship” project are former scholarship receivers. They do fulfil the wish of the Fund - “By studying to achieve such a level in live, where you can help other ones”. This year 21 person receive scholarship within this project.
Every year Vītols Fund receives several hundred applications from young persons that are not able to cover the costs for their education. Each of these stories reflect a hard life experience as well as the capability to stay optimistic, work hard and achieve their goals.
One of the “Friends Scholarship” receivers in her letter is writing: „I am Elīza and I am studying in the Faculty of Computing in the University of Latvia. My mother is a teacher in a small elementary school. My grandparents also were teachers. I could say that the importance of education has been put “in my crib”. I am very thankful that I have an opportunity to receive the scholarship and fully focus on my studies. I appreciate that there are people that consider education as very important and are ready to donate their money without getting anything in return. I promise to study hard and fulfill my goals.”
Yesterday is gone, Tomorrow has not arrived. We have Today to show our willingness to help and support. We have a lot of choices and one of them is to make someone happy. It’s not the magnitude of the work that is important. It’s the purpose of our choice.
Let’s support our youth and help them to achieve their dreams!
