Giving Back in 2019

Looking to start your new year by giving back? Check out this list of non-profits working to empower underserved groups in Vietnam.


Rock-Paper-ScissorsChildren’s Fund

The Rock-Paper-Scissors fund provides bicycles to girls in areas where both safety and time—girls are expected to carry much of the weight at home—are of paramount concern.  The fund is committed to Vietnam’s futurs, and they also have a program providing music lessons and arts opportunities to children in rural Vietnam. HELP AND DONATE HERE

Unemployment among Vietnam’s youth is a growing problem; REACH seeks to give life-changing job opportunities to those from the most disadvantaged backgrounds, from victims of human trafficking to domestic violence.  The program offers free vocational training to qualifying students in fields like web design.

Road safety is a problem that can disproportionately affect children.

The Advocacy Project
Agent Orange still affects over 3 million Vietnamese. The Advocacy Project is raising funds to support a Vietnamese family who has been devastated by the aftermath of the Agent Orange.  Proceeds would benefit a widow caring for her disabled children and a larger family; with your help, she can attain financial security and see a hopeful future.

HAGAR USA

Domestic abuse and human trafficking are ongoing problems in Vietnam, but Hagar’s Vietnamese division offers support to survivors.  Their program gives job training and helps women reintegrate into society by helping with job placement, accommodation, and providing new opportunities.

Thrive Networks

97% of the poorest households in rural Vietnam do not have access to clean, piped water.  To combat this, Thrive Networks seeks to create a sustainable model for private water companies to provide access to rural areas; by education communities about the benefits of clean water, they hope to spark a demand for water companies to continue to work for these underserved areas.

Vets With A Mission

While the ravages of the Vietnam War have not fully faded, Vets With a Mission is sending soldiers back to rally for a good cause: children’s heart surgery.  The fund works to facilitate heart procedures for babies and young children in some of Vietnam’s poorest provinces like Thua Thien Hue.  Vets With a Mission makes all arrangements for life-saving operations, from identifying special patients to transporting them to hospitals for care.
