One Heartland Vietnam is a joint project of students from the University of California (UC) and Hanoi University (HANU). Together with Professor Gerard Sasges and Program Coordinator Nguyễn Thu Trang, we are UCHANU, and we’ve created One Heartland Vietnam to work together to help change the lives of some of Vietnam’s poorest and neediest people.
Our mission is to help school kids in Vietnam’s impoverished mountain regions stay in school, where they can learn the skills necessary to break enduring cycles of poverty. We do this by providing warm jackets to elementary school children & tuition scholarships to deserving middle school students. The money raised goes directly to purchase jackets or provide tuition scholarships.
For reference $1 = 20,000VND, which can buy 1 pair of socks.
