Tuan Giao District is located in the South East of Dien Bien Province with the majority of population are ethnic minorities, in which the percentage of needy households are 91.4% (2017). 18 out of 19 communes of Tuan Giao District are living in difficult state with the lack of equipment and education.
We are a team of young and energetic people who share the common compassion toward the most vulnerable groups. Founded mid 2017, our organization aims to build a better and sustainable life for needy people living in mountainous provinces and remote rural areas of Vietnam. We focus mainly on providing standard educational conditions because we believe that better education could make a more enhanced living.
Vietnam has one of the densest populations in the world. Although its economy is booming, the proportion of the population living below the national poverty level is still high. The mountainous provinces are the poorest regions of Vietnam, where many ethnic minorities live. Without any stable income, people in these areas rely mostly on governmental subsidies. They can hardly afford their children’s tuition fees. VFE in collaboration with local authorities and competent agencies provide essential support for needy families with children at school age. Thereby, the less privileged would be able to receive standard education conditions, which indirectly help them to become responsible and knowledgeable citizens and help to develop their locality and community.
Each community has its own needs and assets, as well as its own culture and social structure. By talking directly to the community, we can identify local needs and how to improve these issues the most logical and efficient way possible.
Our vision is to create a self-sustainable life for the less privileged. Our main focus is on potential problems that hinder local community and the children from development.
