CAU HAN COMMUNITY PROJECT
If you want to learn more about us, you’re in the right place.
The Cau Han Project has been providing crucial services in and around District 7 for almost 20 years for some of HCMC’s most vulnerable children. We provide access to education (formal, informal and vocational), support with basic needs (nutritional support, access to healthcare, etc.), and more specifically, we work with marginalised communities – those affected by HIV/AIDS and migrant communities.
We do not only provide support to people already in dire need, we also challenge issues in society with the aim of prevention. We have been giving non-biased, non-discriminatory, factual workshops and educational programmes on taboo subjects for almost 20 years. We believe that through education that we may challenge the harmful stigmas attached disempowered people, and by challenging harmful stigmas, we are able to deconstruct them and reconstruct new ideas throughout society.
Looking forward to working with you all in the future!
