We are fortunate to have an outstanding Board of Trustees with a wide range of skills and experience for the charity to draw from. They are united around their commitment and wish to see positive change in Vietnam for disadvantaged children. All of our trustees serve as volunteers, and receive no payment for their work.
The trustees are responsible for the governance as well as the general control and management of the administration of the charity. Our trustees have ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of saigonchildren, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up.
In addition, the trustees have to ensure that the charity complies with charity law, local law in Vietnam and with the requirements of the UK Charity Commission as our regulator.
They must also ensure that the charity does not breach any of the requirements or rules set out in our governing document (Trust Deed) and that we remain true to the charitable purpose and objects set out there.
Finally, they must also individually and as a board act with integrity, and avoid any personal conflicts of interest or misuse of charity funds or assets.
