Our programme principles

saigonchildren takes comprehensive and practical steps to ensure disadvantaged children in Vietnam get a proper education. We believe that by focusing on the educational needs of disadvantaged children, we can achieve positive change for them. We measure our results through the numbers of children attending   school, graduating , attending university, and  finding decent jobs.

Our main programmes focus on building schools or learning environments, giving scholarships and additional support to children of all educational levels, and providing vocational training to help graduates get jobs. Our work on education has brought immediate and sustainable achievements, such as a decreased drop-out rate  paralleled with an increase in participants who find decent jobs. In  the long term, a good education increases a child’s  choices in their life and an opportunity to find and sustain  paid employment.
