Ua tsaug uas nej tuaj xyuas koom haum Hmong Institute!

Koom haum Hmong Institute yog lub tsev Hmoob rau cov neeg Hmoob uas xav paub txog lub neej Hmoob. Peb kuj muab kev qhia thiab kawm txog Hmoob kom rau cov neeg tuaj ncig txog kom lawv txawj los pab peb cov Hmoob.

Ua ib zaug neeg, kuv zoo siab tias tiam no kuv yug los ua ib tug Hmoob thiab muaj lub cib fim los txhawb nqa haiv neeg Hmoob, tsis hais tus nyob deb los nyob ze, poj niam los txiv neej, tus muaj los tus pluag, thiab tus laus los tus hluas.

Kuv tau pab txhawb haiv neeg Hmoob thiab neeg poob teb chaw tau 35 lub xyoo los lawm. Ua ntej yuav ncaim lub ntiaj teb no mus, kuv thov muab tag nrho kuv txoj kev txawj thiab txuj ci, keeb kwm tau ua dua, thiab nplooj siab hlub haiv neeg Hmoob coj los nthuav tso ua ib pawg rau lub koom haum The Hmong Institute. Kuv vam tias tus neeg Hmoob uas xav paub thiab xav tig los kawm txog Hmoob yuav tau txais kev pab rau nws. Tsis tas li, cov neeg sab nraud uas pab txhawb peb cov neeg Hmoob uas tshawb fawb tuaj txog los yuav pab kom lawv tau kev pab tib yam.

Thaum peb tab tom loj hlob ua ke, thov qhia rau peb paub yog yam koj tuaj nrhiav txog es peb muaj tsis txhij. Peb yuav muab yam ntawd sau cia thiab npaj nrhiav saib puas tau rau koj. Ua tsaug uas koj tuaj xyuas peb hauv koom haum Hmong Institute!

Hmov tshua txog,
