In September 2022 we were thrilled to sponsor the education costs of the Kim Son Charity Home for the 2022-2023 school year. This includes paying for textbooks, school uniforms, and all school supplies. We had reached out to the nuns that run the school and let them know our plans. They were thrilled!

At the start of the school year, the nuns took lots of pictures of the opening day ceremony with the children in their new uniforms. So many big smiles!

This charity mission was made possible through the kind donations from Vanessa Nguyen, Alysha Sims, Koshu Takatsuji, Daniel Cole, Minh Nguyen, Thang Vo, and Amazon Smile. 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.
