About Hue Help

About Hue Help

Hue Help was established in July 2006, and registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales in December 2006. Hue Help was founded as a grassroots organisation aimed at tackling health, education and safety challenges of children living in Thua Thien Hue province. Our aim mission is to improve the health, education and future prospects of disadvantaged children in Vietnam. Since our founding, we have grown in size and capacity, and now operate programmes across multiple provinces in Vietnam, in partnership with both local and national authorities and organisations.

We want local people to be the driving force behind our operations in Vietnam. We employ local professionals and use participatory methods to ensure the people our work helps are at the heart of our programme development.

We are a completely non-profit, non-political and non-religious organisation. We rely on the generous support of our donors to ensure that we can continue to make a difference to the lives of children in Vietnam.

What We Do

Swimming for Safety

Drowning is the leading cause of death in children in Vietnam. Over 2,000 children a year drown in Vietnam. Drowning kills more children than any single disease or infection – more than Malaria, TB, HIV/AIDS, Dengue and malnutrition – combined.

Swimming for Safety trains school teachers as swimming teachers, who then go on to train children in survival swimming and water safety awareness.

We’ve trained over 400 teachers who have reached over 11,000 children. We are proud of our achievements, but we need your help to help keep more children safe from drowning.

Hue Children’s Shelter

Hue Children’s Shelter is a home for children without parents or family that are not able to care for them.

Since 2006, we’ve provided education, career orientation, life skills training, university scholarships and recreational activities for children. Our aim is to provide the best possible support to enable children at Hue Children’s Shelter to have great childhoods and bright, independent futures.
