HCM CITY— Saigon Children’s Charity CIO on October 19 received a Certificate of Merit from Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc for its “profound impact on supporting access to education in the last 26 years.”
The charity has developed many quality education programmes for underprivileged children in Việt Nam, focusing on four pillars: school building, child development scholarships, vocational training and special needs education.
Thanks to support from long-term trusted partners and sponsors in Việt Nam and around the world, it has been able to provide scholarships to over 36,800 poor students.
A total of 192 schools, including 503 classrooms, have been built to benefit 15,000 students in 13 provinces.
Throughout the past 26 years, the group has organised an array of charity events, ranging from the glamour of the annual Saigon Summer Ball to the strenuous challenges of the Charity Cycle Adventure and Saigon Cyclo Challenge.
These events have involved a wide variety of individuals of different nationalities, backgrounds and professions.— VNS
