LOC THO CHARITY SCHOOL & ORPHANAGE

The Loc Tho Pagoda has had a charity school since 1991, which was founded by Sister Thich Nu Dieu Y.  Sister Dieu Y dedicated her life to the children, and passed away in 2014. The school is now run by the amazing and loving nuns of the Loc Tho pagoda, and is not owned or operated by Lovingkindness Vietnam.  They rely entirely upon donations, much of which comes from people in their immediate community.

At just 15 minute’s drive from the center of Nha Trang, this is one of the easiest places to visit for those in Nha Trang. There are over 100 children from poor families studying at this primary school, some of whom also live here. There are several orphans being cared for by the Loc Tho Pagoda who also attend the school. The nuns at Loc Tho provide the children with school books, school supplies, school uniforms, daily meals, as well as monthly expenses, such as the salaries for the primary school teachers.

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 Loc Tho. You can also send us an email at ahren@lovingkindnessvietnam.org.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

Take 23 Thang 10 Street out of Nha Trang, and at about 1 km past the Long Son Pagoda you’ll come to a traffic signal. Turn right onto D Huong Lo 45. You’ll glide past the Ngoc Hiep Market and come to a set of train tracks at the base of Ganh Hill and a large sign leading up to the Kim Son Pagoda. A hundred meters past the train tracks is a small sign for “Chua Loc Tho” at D Xom Chieu. Follow the little road until you see the large Buddhist compound.
