Trương Vĩnh Ký Secondary School

In the central highlands of Vietnam, there is a desperate need for inclusive, high-quality secondary education. The newly opened Truong Vinh Ky Secondary School will eliminate the stigma suffered by the local Montagnard population – a minority group that is socio-economically and linguistically marginalized. Providing students with proper educational training will allow all the otherwise neglected children to continue their studies in the public system, obtain state-recognition for their studies, and develop the necessary skills for future employment.

Educate the Children of Vietnamese Street Vendors

Early before dawn breaks, bleary-eyed children sleepily stagger into Ho Chi Minh city with their street-vendor parents. The Tan Hung school offers five primary grades of classes to 130 of these otherwise educationally-excluded street children, many of whom have emotional or learning issues. With the teachers' patience, care and lots of hard work, 100% of the graduates have further access to a quality education.

Support Aid to Migrants and Refugees from Africa

Many immigrants from the Middle East and Africa have made death-defying efforts to cross the Mediterranean in pursuit of refugee status in Europe. Those surviving the perilous journey frequently arrive at Italy's extensive coastline and, in doing so, they challenge an overburdened humanitarian system to accommodate their human needs for food, shelter, and clothing. Attending to those who fall through the holes of normal social services, Lasallians are helping to sponsor Sisters who provide these refugees with basic needs, assist their entry into the Italian social system, and otherwise help them acclimate to a new life in a very different world. Donations are being sought to continue this good work by providing funds for refugee supplies and operational costs of the Sisters who care for these refugees .
