“If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
We support the children charity school “The Sacred Heart” in Cu-Chi, Vietnam; the school has been highlighted in VietnamNews for its valuable contributions to a more promising future for poor children: Read more here > LINK
Above photos show Christmas gift giving in December 2017, in Cu-Chi, Saigon, Vietnam, at The Sacred Heart Children Elementary School. To see the happiness in the eye of a helpless child is one of the best things you can ever experience in life.
Children are helpless, and suffers – let’s get together and make a difference.
UNICEF mentions in its report: Children’s issues in Viet Nam, that “disparities are widening between the rich and the poor” and “Child poverty in Viet Nam today is more prevalent than traditional poverty statistics reveal”. UNICEF also states that “in 2006, about one third of all children below 16 years of age, or seven million children, can be considered poor”. The latter often implies that children have to work and beg on the streets instead of going to school and learn subjects that can help them to get a safer and healthier life in the future.
We therefore want to help underprivileged and disabled children to a happier and safer future – but this is not possible without your kind contributions. Below citations by famous figureheads further shed some light into the fact we can all make a positive impact on people’s life through a joint effort; in a world of uncertainty, terrorism, climate change and political conflicts.

Yet the true friend of the people should see that they be not too poor, for extreme poverty lowers the character of the democracy; measures therefore should be taken which will give them lasting prosperity; and as this is equally the interest of all classes, the proceeds of the public revenues should be accumulated and distributed among its poor, if possible, in such quantities as may enable them to purchase a little farm, or, at any rate, make a beginning in trade or husbandry.

Vietnam charity project “Cu-Chi”
Support underprivileged children in Cu-Chi to complete their vital elementary studies.
About the school: This elementary school was founded by a catholic nun in the early 1990th. The children come from poor families and most of them are of Vietnamese heritage who were forced to flee Cambodia back into Vietnam. Accordingly, Cambodia never gave them personal identification papers or birth certificates, and they have not received the help as needed by local authorities thus making it hard to join local public schools.
School set-up: The school is managed by 6 professionals, including 180 students at the age of 6 to 13. At the time of becoming a teenager they continue their studies at public schools with the support from the school in Cu Chi. Notice that kids from poor families often have to work in order to supply the household with money, and this school had to persuade the parents extremely hard to allow the kids to go to school.
Curricula: The school follows sound and humble Christian values of showing respect and appreciation, and the school teaches students English, literature, and maths. There is also a need to extend the program to include computer science as well as additional creative and engaging English tutorials, and we discussed the possibility of teaching children’s parents how to run a business.
School expenses: Sought donations would cover expenses such as: salaries for qualified teachers, as well as, remuneration for the gardener, and school managers, besides, to cover for expenses such as utilities, study material, food, rent, school uniforms, and transportation. At present, the main source of income derives from donations by a few individuals and some local enterprises.
Future plans: The school would like to expand its operations and develop existing curriculum, as part of allowing more children to get a safer and happier future with dignity and respect.
An environmental friendly school: Below photos of the school show happy children who learn about how to plant flowers and how to grow vegetables and fruits, and, they learn about waste recycling. Financial and technological support from investors in Singapore enables the production of fish at the school.
