Vietnam, a school for a better future

 Dear SPC members,

As part of our charity activities, for the past few years, we have been organizing, “Trung Thu” parties for various orphanages.

We are planning this year to organize it for Pho Cap School.

Pho Cap School was founded in 2001 by three Vietnamese teachers (Doan, Trang and Khanh) with the help of the city authorities & donators.

This school provides free education for the underprivileged children of Ho Chi Minh City. 

The school was located in an old abandoned house which was refurbished entirely by the teachers themselves, with the help of volunteers and students from the local neighbourhood, and funding from voluntary contributions.
Until 2010, teaching at Pho Cap only took place for a couple of hours in the morning and a couple of hours in the early afternoon. In the long break between the two sessions, the children had to play on the road outside, and almost always had nothing to eat. 

In 2011, a school canteen was opened to provide the children with decent food and to extend care throughout the day. Both the canteen and the kindergarten were funded by private sponsors.

Pho Cap School takes in children from poor, large or single parent families, as well as abandoned and orphaned children and children with serious psychological and socialisation problems (e.g. autism).
The school now serves over 90 children (16 from 4-5 years in the kindergarten; 45 from 6 to 10 years in the primary school; and 30 from 11 to 17 years in the secondary school).

There is no stable fund for buying education aids, food and even living allowances for teachers.

The school need rice, cooking oil, sugar, instant noodle, dishwashing liquid, toothpaste…
