R!ghts of HoPe – Vietnam
R!ghts of HoPe is our new poject in Vietnam.
The home was founded 1994 by a french doctor Nguyen Chanh who started with small fundraising campaigns to support disadvantaged children in the region. As the project became better known, additional supporters came in who shared the vision of the founder, to protect needy children from a life on the streets. As more and more children were admitted, a few vietnamese women took responsibility for the project.
Currently, the home is being managed by three women, who are working on voluntary basis, sharing the work amongst them. They see to it, that the children have a structured life, they manage the financial means of the home, cook and plan the week for every child, so that these can focus on their education. They take care of the children, guide and support them until the age of 18, when they have to leave the home to make room for other children.
