Please give me some leftovers

Every day in highland and remote areas, hundreds and thousands of children require eating, studying, and growing up to be good people who benefit society.

Meals for children

“Living in the city all these years, I cannot not imagine that poverty is still harshly present in such remote places. There are places where children do not have enough food to eat, their parents can only dig into the ground and in their garden for something edible to feed their children to school.”

“Please Give Children A Dream!”

Be Better Foundation implements the campaign to build a book library for poor students in remote areas with the hope that “Books will inspire them to have a dream”, “a dream that can change a life”, ”Changing one child’s life will change many generations in the future”

The long-term scholarship program “Bring children to school”

The long-term scholarship program “Bring children to school” which supports financing tuition fees and living expenses for students with extremely difficult circumstances is the core and continuous program of Be Better Foundation.

School shoes for poor children

After taking volunteer trips to the Mekong Delta, I had supposed there were not many muddy roads like that, but the recent trip to Kontum made me deeply sad. Many children stood in line before me to receive the support money from Be Better Foundation.

Old computers: trash for us, but treasure for poor students!

Be Better Foundation opened a program calling for donating old but still functioning equipment and utensils to those in need. Poor students and students in remote areas can benefit from these donations.

After the recent trip to Kontum to award scholarships, I saw many children with worn-out slippers walking more than a dozen kilometers on a slippery hilly road to go to school.

Supporting difficult circumstances during covid-19 in 2021

The most stressful COVID-19 phase in Ho Chi Minh City was when the city was locked down for several months in 2021. All business activities were stopped, and many families fell into poverty because of long-term job loss.

“ Helping others also means helping oneself, giving the self and mind a chance to practice compassion and loving through which one can find the transcendent meaning in this life.”
