Our actions in Vietnam
Vietnam, despite an economic leap in recent years, is experiencing significant development inequalities and many families still live below the poverty line. Due to lack of financial resources, children are forced to drop out of school to help their parents.
Our project directly managed by Enfants d’Asie
Getting young girls to university: the higher education project
Enfants d’Asie set up a pilot project to enable young girls from ethnic minorities to access higher education at Ho Chi Minh’s Universities. About ten young girls are financially and morally supported until they graduate and obtain a job.
Our projects in partnership with local actors
The Religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate
Supporting young girls from ethnic minorities: boarding schools in the Central Highlands
Enfants d’Asie supports six boarding schools near Pleiku, in the Central Highlands region, managed by the Religious Congregation. Nearly 300 young people, mainly girls, from ethnic minorities, are welcomed. Boarding school accommodation allows them to pursue their education under more favourable conditions.
Welcoming underprivileged children to the Maison d’Amour in Thu Duc
In partnership with the Religious Congregation, the Maison d’Amour, in the suburbs of Ho Chi Minh, welcomes about 550 children from disadvantaged families, including 90 beneficiaries from Enfants d’Asie. It offers leisure activities, personal support and access to basic necessities.
