In September 2023 we paid the school costs of the Kim Son Charity School for the upcoming school year. We worked closely with the nuns at the Kim Son Pagoda who run the charity school and arranged to pay the many costs for the children’s education. These include buying new school uniforms for all the children, supplying all the textbooks, and providing school supplies.

The nuns had a special ceremony with the children and their teachers, and handed out the uniforms and books to the students. This charitable effort was made possible through a corporate donation from Capital Group. Thank you!!!


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 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 who want to learn tailoring skills. All the children are from poor families, and the school exists through the kindness of donations.
