Reviews for Children of Vietnam

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so proud to be a donor to Children of Vietnam. In 2014, I traveled to Danang, Vietnam and had the privilege to personally see the incredible work they do. I met and visited with women and their children who participate in COV programs. The lives of these families have been forever changed. One group of women I visited were participants in the "Empowerment Program". After a careful needs assessment, COV provides them assistance with nutrition and living conditions, healthcare, education and micro loans. The women I met went from poverty and hunger to starting their own businesses, feeding their families, and keeping their children in school. And follow up by COV confirms the continued success of these women. It is amazing at how thoughtful programs and well spent money can break the cycle of poverty and effect permanent change. It was truly amazing to witness first hand. I can't say enough good things about this organization and their staff. I'm so glad to be a donor to Children of Vietnam.

Today, I write my thinking with deep gratitude to Children of Vietnam Organization.
Thank COV to give me a special occasion to be a beneficiary of University Student Scholarship Program, give me one more chance, conditions and motivation to go to school. The University Student Scholarship Program also help me to have a chance to join useful social activities and extracurricular activities like soft skill training, help me to mature more, care more about others. I promise to try our best to achieve good studying results and enthusiastic participation of extra-curricular activities of scholarship programs. Thanks Children of Vietnam very much!

I’m writing these words to express my sincere appreciation to Children of Vietnam (COV) for all the things the organisation has provided me for the last four years. I truly own it a great debt of gratitude.
COV's support and help have changed my life in a positive way. I once thought of stopping my dream of higher education in the first year of university due to my difficulties in earning a living as well as my inability to pay the tuition fee. Fortunately, the organisation came to me as a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks to its tuition fee and monthly living expense allowances, I could continue and realize my dream which seems to help me build a brighter future. Just 2 days ago, a COV' member from U.S. gave me his motorbike he had used when he was in Vietnam (the photo). It truly gives a big support to my current job hunting.
Not only has COV supported my finances but the organisation has also supported my mind. Its care and helps have brought me a strong belief that I am cared about, I am supported and I am not alone on the long way ahead. Living in difficult circumstances sometimes gets very discouraging so it is glad to know someone out there still cares about and supports me. The belief has been one of the strongest motives to push me forward. If I hadn’t been supported by all of you while my life had been surrounded by all the darkness, I wouldn’t have a mind strong enough to nourish the dream of a bright future.
Also, COV has created a good environment for me and other beneficiaries to develop ourselves. Humanitarian activities we have ourselves conducted with the organization’s encouragement and support as well as fee-free extra-curricular activities and English classes the organization has carried out for us have contributed to preparing us for our job hunting in the near future. To me, being the Master of Ceremonies (MC) for the humanitarian campaign “Cycle out Child Poverty in Vietnam” is certainly an unforgettable memory in my life. It was the chance that I did something though small for COV in return. Surely I will always do my best to contribute to the organization’s development and to bring opportunities to people in need like COV does.

A few years ago, I did a search for "children" and "Vietnam"; mainly because I am a teacher of young kids and I'm very aware of how challenging the situation is for Vietnam. I found Children of Vietnam, and did some research. This is an ideal charity for me, and, I hope, for you. Their goals are clear and quantifiable. They say will build a school and they do. They tell you a few dollars will buy schoolbooks -- and they provide kids with schoolbooks. They're not rebuilding the whole infrastructure, but they are doing noble work in taking care of the most vulnerable people on this planet. And it's done without reference to nationality nor religion. The newsletter will keep you informed of important work, so you can see how your dollars are put to work.

I work for COV almost five year. I usually hear our partners, in particular government ones: We are very busy to cooperate with COV. And then we are happy to see our poor and vulnerable people getting better life. The beneficiaries get wraparound support, from health care, education, housing... to livelihood.
Thank you very COV for giving me a chance to help other people.

COV is a wonderful organization that takes their initiatives to heart by reaching out and changing lives of the under-privileged. I have volunteered with them for over 10 years. The staff in America and Vietnam are extremely dedicated to their mission and are a joy to work with. Seeing their programs first hand in Vietnam is inspiring. I have met the 25 Bright Girl Scholars and they are now aspiring to be doctors and policewomen. I've also visited three recipients from the Empowering Foundations for Women and their Children Program, focusing on impoverished single mothers with children. The gratitude the families and children show is palpable and the hope in their eyes is brighter than any wishing star. Thank you for making such a difference in so many lives, including mine.

I first learned about Children of Vietnam in 2010. The organization's track record and the founder and staff's commitment to Vietnam quickly became apparent. Despite having a small staff, COV continues to amaze me with its projects (ongoing and new) and the level of personal devotion each staff member carries. Vietnam is lucky to have organizations like COV. I hope more people will become aware of COV's work and support the organization so it can continuing to providing life-changing opportunities to the children and youth of Vietnam.
