Challenge

There are more than 10,000 disadvantaged children in Hochiminh city. More than half of them do not have any personal documents. Without personal documents, they are INVISIBLE and UNRECOGNIZED by the world and have no access to education, health care, and any kinds of social public services. They are ignored and left behind and even denied by the locals. Many street children cannot go to school.

Solution

The project will educate disadvantaged children, connect them with the network of social workers, lawyers and local government to get the personal documents and access to public services and development opportunities: (1) educating street children and families to take efforts in getting the personal documents; (2) finding evidences for the children's identity; (3) connecting the network of social workers, layers and local government; (4) supporting them with small scholarships.

Long-Term Impact

By helping these children today, you will open A NEW LIFE PAGE for them when they are recognized and identified as citizens of the country and have their own rights to access to equal public services and opportunities. In addition, you are not only helping some children with secured better future, not just for them, but for HCM city and Vietnam. By working with and investing in the most vulnerable group in society, we hope to unleash, maximize their potentials to country's next leaders
