  • A safe, positive environment where the children have the opportunity to experience their unique cultural heritage

  • An education that allows the children to live full and productive lives

  • The caregivers who interact with the children

  • The benefactors who make this effort possible


  • Our sole purpose is to help the children of the VinhSon Orphanage

  • Successfully integrate the children into the Vietnamese society while being mindful of the political and cultural realities

  • Our focus will be from a humanitarian perspective

  • Funds and in-kind gifts will only benefit the children and their caregivers
