KIM SON CHARITY SCHOOL

This wonderful organization offers free primary school education at their charity school, plus free sewing skills training at their free vocational school for those who live in the area of Vinh Luong ward, 15 kilometers north of Nha Trang. Founded at the Kim Son Pagoda  in 1994 by the Buddhist nun Thich Nu Dieu Phuc, it has long been a loving source of education for local youngsters. There are classrooms which grades 1 to 5 split in morning and afternoon shifts, and another room with donated sewing machines for those wishing to learn tailoring skills. The school is run by the nuns of Kim Son, and is not owned or operated by Lovingkindness Vietnam.  They rely entirely upon donations, most of which come from people in the community.

 

There are approximately 80 children currently enrolled in the primary school, and there are 20 young adults in the sewing school. All of the children are from poor families, and while they don’t eat at the school, food donations are given to the children to take home with them. Donations through our website go to improving the facilities and paying monthly expenses.

To donate to this cause, , click the Donate button, which can be found on any page of this site in the top right. From the PayPal form, include a comment to indicate that you wish the donation to go to Kim Son. You can also send us an email at ahren@lovingkindnessvietnam.org.
