Happy Birthday SCC

Happy Birthday SCC


November 2012 sees us pass our twentieth year working in Vietnam. Although we didn’t get our official Vietnamese “license to operate” until 1994, the organisation was established as a UK charity on November 2nd.

Paul Cleves, the school teacher who set up SCC all those years ago, must be hugely proud of what he set up: with many thousands of Vietnamese children and families having benefitted from his commitment to bring change.

1992 was a very different time in Vietnam – SCC was amongst the first international ngos to open here and there simply wasn’t the infrastructure or attitude, even, that exists today.

Twenty years ago it would have taken many many long hours by car to travel – very uncomfortably – to areas that it takes just an hour or two to get to now.

Twenty years ago SCC was started with a £100 Trust Deed and a lot of passion and hope, twenty years later we are able to support 3,000 children every day, build schools and plan for the future with confidence.

Many of the articles in this newsletter talk about new initiatives and programmes that SCC is involved in 2012 and I am very happy to have had the chance to take on what Paul started and continue his vision for change.

But, whatever we do, whether we are launching a new initiative or maintaining a long-running successful programme, we continue to make the same commitment – to bring positive change to the lives of severely disadvantaged Vietnamese children and young people and lift them and their families out of the scourge of poverty.


We also continue to believe – Every Child Counts; Every day counts


So – please join me in wishing SCC a very Happy 20th Birthday and join me in continuing to bring change here every day.

School Building and Learning Environments – December Updates

On 1st and 4th October 2012, SCC was happy to hold two Ground Breaking Ceremonies for two new kindergartens in Phu Can and Long Thoi commune, Tieu Can district, Tra Vinh province. Among the participants in this, literally ground breaking, were the local authorities, teachers, children, parents and local people, as well as SCC and their sponsors. When the constructions are completed these new kindergartens will provide pre-school education for 55 children and 77 children in Phu Can and Long Thoi communes, respectively.

Teachers and parents as well as representatives from SCC, the local authority and PoristesStiftung join forces in the ground-breaking ceremony for Long Thoi kindergarten

In Phu Can commune, less than half of children receive pre-school education in the form of kindergarten and most children are thus unprepared for school and fall behind. Moreover, classrooms are often shared between primary schools and kindergartens, however with rising numbers of children attending primary schools, this is becoming untenable. Phu Can, Long Thoi and many other communes around the country require urgent attention as well as many more adequate classrooms for kindergarten children.

With the support of funding from PoristesStiftung, Premier Oil, and financial contributions from Tieu Can authorities and people, the construction projects will create two new classrooms in Phu Can Kindergarten and three classrooms in Long Thoi Kindergarten equipped with hygiene facilities and a storeroom in each. There will also be outdoor improvements which will include playgrounds and fences of green trees, tended to and looked after by local parents.

Representatives were welcomed by a performance of the children who will soon have a new kindergarten

We sincerely thank Premier Oil, PoristesStiftung, the local authorities and everyone who has supported us during the course of the projects. Thanks to them, the new kindergartens will be completed and ready in February 2013, four months before the start of the school year, when they will welcome a minimum of 130 kindergarten children.

Phu Can’s children, parents and teachers and local authorities attended the ceremony with great excitement.
