Kon Kloc Early Childhood Education Centre

Kon Kloc hamlet is a part of a poor rural commune in the northern Dak Ha District, a remote, mountainous part of Vietnam’s central highland, with a population of approximately 6500 people. The living conditions there are difficult.

Because the kindergarten in this hamlet is situated in two old, dilapidated classrooms, the Vietnamese Education Society (VES), a Canadian Charity based out of Saskatchewan is working in conjunction with another organization called East Meet West to build a new Early Education Centre for this community.

CVBF has agreed to work with the VES to complete the construction of this centre.

Thank you!
Dear friends, Thank you so much again to you, dear family, friends and honoured guests, for making our 5th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 30/17 a huge success. Together we were able to raise over $40,000! We are truly grateful to everyone for your great support so that we can carry on with our work to improve the lives of impoverished children and orphans in Vietnam. Our event would not be possible without our amazing MC Dr. Cecile Phan and incredible local artists - Native Performer Amanda Lamothe, the VSUE (Vivian, Natalie, Van, Katelynn, Teddy, Hardy, Ken&Henry, Minh-Thuy) Dancers, the Truong Lac Hong school little dancers (Celina, Mai, Hong, Angela), and Michelle&Lily Dang. Our silent auction would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of local businesses, and our Arizona Getaway raffle was made possible by the generosity of Mr& Mrs Heuver. And thank you to all our volunteers for all your hard work and dedication to making our evening a great success.
