Ringing in the New Year at the Kim Son Charity School
In January 2023 we helped the Kim Son Charity School celebrate the Lunar New Year. Tet is the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam and we wanted to do something special for everyone at Kim Son. We coordinated with the nuns at the school and arranged many gifts to celebrate the occasion.
The school had a special ceremony and all the children received new school uniforms, traditional Tet foods such as Banh Tet cakes, and other Tet gifts that they would take home to their families. All the teachers also received Tet gifts including red envelopes of lucky money. Finally, the children played lots of games and tried on their new athletic uniforms. It was a wonderful day! Happy New Year!
This special charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from JL Support Services. Thank you!!
ABOUT THE 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 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.
