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!
We are so grateful for your support at our 4th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 24th. Together, we raised over $45,000 for the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation! It brings us great joy to know that we can continue helping more children go to school, grant more scholarships, buy more beds, deliver more playground equipment, supply more books/pencils, bicycles, wheelchairs, hearing aids, possibly help build another school and so much more! It was not a small feat this year as we staged the first ever full capacity banquet dedicated to authentic Vietnamese Cuisine, something that is rarely if ever done anywhere in Canada. It took a powerhouse team of talented chefs, dedicated volunteers, generous businesses, and beautiful guests to make the night an incredible success. We thank you!
