For The Children Viet Nam

This organization works with public schools to identify children whose family situation prevents them from staying in school. The cost of school fees for one year for one child is USD180 (50-cents per day.) 

  • Read the stories of a few of the children-in-need. Your donation will change a child’s life. We will direct your gift to For the Children who will confirm its receipt and acknowledge your generosity.  

  • Read a sample of letters from the children and one from a supporter.

Kianh Foundation

This organization offers a day school for special needs children, from toddlers to age 18. They serve children who, until a few years ago, had absolutely no options. Many were left alone at home while parents worked. In some cases, children were tied to their beds to prevent them from wandering away or having an accident. In other cases, parents were giving up their children to the State, because of an inability to provide for them. The Kianh Foundation provides a professional and hopeful alternative to the families they serve. Contributions are welcome and appreciated; the cost of sponsoring one child's education for a year is $720.

Please email the Loving Work Foundation for details.

The Loving Work Foundation  is thrilled to offer opportunities for our friends to financially support programs in Viet Nam that provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged children.  


We currently work with three organizations that provide opportunities for friends to support their programs. Your gifts go directly to help children in need. So little is required to make all the difference in their lives.



The Loving Work Foundation

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, our sole means of financial support comes through donations made by compassionate supporters of our work. The majority of our operating budget is comprized of donations made by each retreat participant as part of the registration process. We also gratefully receive support from other friends around the world and welcome checks or online contributions. Most of the funds we receive go directly to cover costs associated with the service projects in which we participate during the Loving Work Retreats. We endeavor to keep administrative costs as low as possible, on average only 10% - 15% of donations received are used for adminstrative purposes. Foundation Board members, nor retreat practice leaders, receive any remuneration for their work. We do, however, pay a fee to our local organizer, as well as to our web manager. Any funds not spent on work projects or administrative costs are allocated to a Discretionary Relief Fund, from which we can offer additional financial assistance in circumstances of need brought to our attention by our partnering community agencies. Our aspiration is to make the greatest possible impact with the generous donations we receive.

Thank you for your support.
