Hue Help works with disadvantaged children in a shelter in Hue city, in central Vietnam. We collaborate with staff and the local authorities to ensure the children have a safe and happy home. To help improve their future prospects, we support and enhance the children’s education, including help with university fees. We also run a drowning prevention programme “Swimming for Safety” to help tackle the leading cause of death for Vietnamese children aged 1-19 years old. Our programme focuses on teaching survival swimming. We train primary school teachers and then work with them as they teach their pupils. Since 2011, we have trained nearly 400 teachers and 10,000 children. We believe in building local capacity to promote sustainability, and in working to understand local customs and beliefs. Vietnamese children are at the heart of the work we do.
Let’s make a difference together
We are are a non-profit, non-political and non-religious organisation. We rely on the generous support of our donors so that we can continue to make a difference to the lives of children in Hue Shelter and prevent so many children and young people from drowning.
