|Orphanages Vinh Son 2&4 FarmLands||
Two of the farming projects are designed to enhance farming practices managed by Vinh Son 2 and Vinh Son 4 orphanages. After working with the orphanages for several years, PdV couldn’t help but wish to help address the negative impact on the orphans stemming from low production and too much time spent by sisters in the fields. Lower production equals lower income, with fewer funds to provide food and other supplies to the children, not to mention the time the sisters are forced to spend in the fields instead of educating the orphans.
|Y Soan's Farmland||
As the farmland of Y Soan is a sloping surface, like most of farmland operated by minorities, we hope to combine a long-term culture that promotes reforestation and crop-based food that provides income in the shorter term.
Since PdV has been helping street children since 2002, some of these children are now young adults seeking employment. To help them integrate with society, we are creating PointSandwich and teaching them how to manage this microenterprise.
Our street children grow with our organisation as they learn English and IT. When they become adults, they look for a stable job and this is where PointDelivery enters the scene.
Following the success of PdV’s PointCom training centres helping street children learn IT skills and English, we are gearing up to launch a new project focused on sport.
Through working with orphanages and boarding schools in Kon Tum, Poussières de Vie realises the low success rate of students undertaking pre-university examinations, particularly in areas such as mathematics and Vietnamese literature . We offer tutoring to support these students, but we strive to address these issues at an earlier stage.
|Kon Tum PointCom||
PdV has created its third PointCom centre in Kon Tum, located in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The PointCom provides assistance to children of ethnic minorities, especially the Bahnar and Jarai people. Several teachers give lessons to students in IT skills and English.
|"Extra, extra, read all about it"||
Our children put together a newspaper in Ho Chi Minh City regularly to inform you about the events they observe.
|Phan Huy Ich DotCom||
In Tan Binh’s Ward 15, a relatively new urban area in Ho Chi Minh City, with a dense population, people’s lives are an everyday struggle.
|Tu Xuong DotCom||
Since this DotCom opened its doors in May 2004, it had helped hundreds of children aged 9-18 years improve their lives. Currently about 100 children benefit from the facility. On average, 18-20 children participate regularly in our training. The foster children usually study for two hours per day at the DotCom. Before or after study, they work selling lottery tickets, shining shoes, collecting empty bottles or cans, etc to supplement family income or meet their own needs.
