Our Founding Story
About Peter Mach
In honour of my father Minh Mach and teacher/friend Father Michael Agliardo, I am setting up this award and organization to help students who are in need of financial aid in order to keep their hopes and dreams alive through the advancement of their education. Because of the support given to me by my family and kind-hearted people like Michael, I was able to enjoy a fine education in America, which later allowed me to pursue a successful career and live a fulfilling life.
AMA is non-profit, non-governmental, and non-religious organization that is dedicated to helping the underprivileged students and educators of Vietnam. We at AMA believe that we can improve the quality of education by inspiring one student / teacher at a time. We want to support and inspire prospective and existing teachers to new heights.
Despite their economic hardships, low pay, and lack of recognition, we want to see our teachers remain as motivated and passionate educators for their students.
Teaching is also one of the lowest paid professions, which creates a vicious cycle for teachers in the system where they face motivational issues and may eventually leave their jobs for higher pay in another profession. We at AMA want to break this cycle for dedicated students adn teachers by financially supporting and developing them together with our local university partners. By supporting and empowering the teachers in our program, we strive to create positive impact for the students in their classrooms, thereby leading to a higher quality education and exponential returns for students and donors.
