Our Philosophy: At saigonchildren, we believe that all children should have the right to fulfill their potential, and that a measured amount of carefully targeted help can make all the difference. By focusing on the educational needs of disadvantaged children, we are able to achieve positive change for them. We measure our results through the numbers of children going to school, graduating from school, going to university and those ¬finding decent jobs. Since our inception, we have followed these principles: • We help the children in greatest need. • We foster independence and avoid creating dependency. • We never replace the responsibility of parents, the authorities, or the child.
