Her love story: When Thuy started working with Plan in 2007, she began working with Nam, a vice-principal of Ban Phung Primary School (a remote commune which is 20 km far from town). During the time they worked together helping ethnic children in this region, they fell deeply in love. They married and have since had a lovely and healthy baby boy.

Why we love her: Chuyen brings the enthusiasm and energy of a child, but the intelligence and wit of a wise woman. Her understanding of the diverse ethnic cultures in this remote area (where she grew up), coupled with her excellent communication skills make her an essential ingredient to the success of this project.
In her own words: “I return home just simply because I love my homeland and I want to contribute to its development.”
