Northside School – Fundraising for Hoa Sua Vocational Training School

Vietnam’s total population of 88,000,000 contains 54 ethnic groups, with 32 of these minority groups residing in northern Vietnam in the highlands, the mountainous region along the China border. Due to high poverty levels, lack of education beyond primary school, and isolation from any employment opportunities other than farming, the highland ethnic minority youth are at a great disadvantage, both educationally and vocationally, if they remain in the highlands without assistance.

A total of 8% of Vietnam’s population is disabled, physically or mentally, with 40% of this group illiterate. Due to discrimination and little opportunity to attend school because of special needs, few disabled people have sustainable jobs.

Samaritan’s Purse Vietnam (SPV) has worked with Hoa Sua Vocational Training Centre (HSVTC) in Hanoi for 14 years. In that time, over 450 ethnic minority youth from the highland provinces of Lao Cai, Lai Chau, and Hoa Binh have received or are currently receiving vocational training and subsequently, with assistance from Samaritan’s Purse staff, secured jobs which allow them to live independently. Due to the positive influence of SPV staff and HSVTC, many young people have experienced life transformation – personal and professional – through this project.

Please donate below to support the work of SPV and HSVTC to help increase the income for ethnic minority, disabled and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam and provide them with life skills training.
