Wall Street Journal Highlights Lana Condor’s Vietnam Girls Scholars Program
August 11, 2020 — The Wall Street Journal features The Asia Foundation in a profile of 2019 Lotus Circle honoree Lana Condor. Since 2017, Condor has worked with the Foundation to support female scholars in Can Tho, Vietnam.
And you do philanthropy work for the Asia Foundation too. [Condor has supported the organization’s girls scholarship program since 2017, financing education for girls in Can Tho, Vietnam, where she was adopted from as a child.]
My scholarship is like my baby. The most important thing I’ve done in my career thus far is to put Vietnamese girls through school and give them education, because [for girls] in Vietnam education is not a right, particularly good education. Obviously knowledge is power and girls are vastly intelligent. Just open the door a little bit and they’ll knock it down.
