FYI... Something Interesting
It started with an email with the title "FYI... Something Interesting."
We read an article about a school lunch program and asked...
In the Summer of 2018, Ryan read an article about a school lunch program that only costs $1 per student per day. However, that price, as low as it may seem, was still high for many families living in Vietnam. As a person who always enjoyed a good meal, Ryan knew that this was neither fair nor right. He brainstormed with his sister, Madeleine, to see how they could build something that would last.
The project, DURI.ĂN, or Durable Eats (ăn means to eat in Vietnamese), started out as an ambitious goal to provide sustainable nutrients, clean water, and access to education for impoverished students and families in rural villages in Vietnam.
Under the leadership of Ryan Mai and Madeleine Mai, DURI.ĂN has grown into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization made up of a small passionate team which believes that even the smallest impact is worth the trouble
DURI.ĂN is a 100% Gen Z volunteer organization. Our goal is to empower young people to make a difference by undertaking small projects with big impacts. This is achieved through our Ambassadorship program, which allows young people to exercise their entrepreneurial spirit and gain experience while fulfilling their civic duty to society and to the world. We aim to connect like-minded young people from all over the world to work towards common goals.
