Huong La Centre for Disabled and Abandoned Children
The Huong La Centre has been caring for disabled and abandoned children for 25 years in a small, largely self-sustaining centre run by a church mission established in Vietnam more than 100 years ago.
The 25th Birthday Gift Fund paid for the training of Centre staff by a team of UNIS Hanoi Teaching Assistants to provide basic numeracy and literacy skills for these most isolated of children.
Service Learning groups also visit the centre to work with the children in the classroom and in more social skill development. We also arrange for the students to visit regularly the UNIS Hanoi campus building a long term relationship.
Working with The Friends of Huong La, the Centre received an initial investment of 5,000 USD divided over two years. In 2017-2018 the funds have been extended.
