About Friends of Central Highlands, Vietnam
The Friends of the Central Highlands Viet Nam, Inc. is of the belief that through education there is hope for a better future. Through education, the doors of opportunity can be opened for those who dare to walk through. It is also education that will allow dreams to come true and maybe, just maybe, we can affect lives in a positive and constructive way.
Through our donor base and their contributions, FoCHVN’s work has included the building of small schools, micro-credit loans, scholarships, construction of a girl’s dorm at the orphanage, housing for village boys living in squalid conditions, new kitchens, and a multiple list of other “quality of life” issues for the people and orphans we serve.
The need is tremendous. Books, lighting, whiteboards, school uniforms, backpacks, play clothing and shoes, teacher training materials, additional teachers, desks, beds, bedding and the list continues almost without end.
It is the position of our Board that what we do provides a positive boost that the adults and children need to start the shift from despair and poverty, to education, dignity and economic well-being.
