Child services for a better future

“The secret to happiness is not what you have, but what you give. Those who make others happy are happy.”

– André Gide

We provide help where there is none

There are 16 SOS Children’s Villages located from near Hanoi in the north past Ho Chi Minh City in the south. The LOAN Foundation (LOAN Stiftung) projects focus on the northern most mountainous region of Vietnam, where no other help is available.

These regions of Vietnam are difficult to access. For this reason, many aid organizations do not go there. This doesn’t stop us! Through our projects, we improve future prospects and the quality of life for children of ethnic minorities. Our initiatives include i. a. the construction of kindergartens, elementary schools, and sleeping quarters. In this way, we provide personal, direct support on-site for educational access and ensure the sustainable implementation of our projects.

LOAN Foundation (LOAN Stiftung): Visit in the north of Vietnam

The LOAN Foundation (LOAN Stiftung) provides “worldwide child services for a better future.” Before we start a project, we make our own very precise assessment of the initial situation and the conditions. We made our first trip in early December 2015 to the Ha Giang and Cao Bang provinces in the north of Vietnam.

We monitor each project carefully. Before we start a project, we make our own very precise assessment on-site of the initial situation and conditions.
