GET INVOLVED TIME FOR GIVING HANDS

“I first heard about Viet Dreams through my mother. When I looked into Viet Dreams with the photos and stories behind it, I wanted to become involved immediately. I asked my parents if I could help out in any way and they were so proud of me for my vision. I saw photos of all the underprivileged kids in Vietnam without having access to clean water to drink or enough food to eat. Not to mention the lack of schools for the kids. I currently compete in the sport of badminton. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel all over the country and even other parts of the world for competition. I have a passion and vision to share my positive experiences through my travels and use my networking to make a difference in the lives of the kids in Vietnam. In 2014, I was involved in this fundraising initiative and was able to raise enough funds to support Duy Hoa Kindergarten. In December of 2017, I plan to visit the schools and kids in Vietnam that I have helped. I want to see what kind of impact I have made for the kids and hopefully impacted their

lives in a positive way”

CATHERINE NGUYEN / DOROTHY NGUYEN “I started a mission called ‘Us & Kids’ to create more opportunities for unfortunate kids in Vietnam. For the first campaign, I collaborated with my friend, Dorothy Nguyen, to design t-shirts. With the money raised, we will purchase school supplies for children attending schools in remote areas of Vietnam. Since I was young, I have always found a deep connection when it came to helping others, especially those in Vietnam. I have realized that through giving, I am able to keep in touch with my roots meanwhile promoting the idea of unity between us and the kids. We might be separated by an entire ocean, but we all share the same hopes and dreams for a brighter future” Catherine UNIS Hanoi Class of 2017 is the graduating class of the United Nations International School of Hanoi in 2017.

PARTNERS COLLABORATION & PARTNERSHIP

Since 2011, Viet Dreams has been collaborating with Friends of Vinh Son to help 7 orphanages in Kontum and Pleiku on clean water system maintenance which occurs every 2 months. Our newest collaboration was with Ngoc Anh (singer) & Friends Group to work on installing clean water systems at schools in Ha Tinh and Quang

Binh province. We believe in collaboration and are open to partnerships with different organizations in order to bring more resources to children in need across Vietnam. Since November 2015, Viet Dreams & JacQ Concept have been gifting more than 1000 pairs of canvas shoes to schools in Quang Nam & Lam Dong.

JACQ CONCEPT “Bussiness Improves Lives. Live Passionately. Give Beautifully” JacQ supports humanitarian programs through raising social awareness and making a positive impact to the community. For every single product sold, they pledge an equivalent item toward underprivileged children in Vietnam.

NGOC ANH & FRIENDS Since the beginning of 2016, Ngoc Anh, Trizzie Phuong-Trinh & their friends have been raising funds to collaborate with Viet Dreams to work on clean drinking water projects in Quang Binh and Ha Tinh. So far, we have been able to install 7 systems benefitting more than 4,700 underprivileged students in remote areas.

FRIENDS OF VINH SON A 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, Friends of Vinh Son Montagnard Orphanage, Vietnam, provides a coordinated effort to raise resources (cash and in-kind gifts) that provide a happier and more fulfilling quality of life for the children at Orphanage. http://www.friendsofvso.org/

VIETNAM FUND The Vietnam Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to improving the lives of children in Vietnam through the support of primary school libraries, education for orphaned girls, clean drinking water systems, school food programs, and traditional music and musicians”. “VFEMI was founded by Jane Coyle who worked for over two decades providing services to refugees and immigrants in the US, and as creator and director of an international adoption program placing Vietnamese and Ethnic Minority children with US families prior to starting the Vietnam Fund”.
