The CAU HAN COMMUNITY based development PROJECT

If you want to learn more about us, you’re in the right place.

Our story

The HCWA established the Cau Han Project in 1997 as a development project for communities affected by HIV and AIDS, for impoverished and at-risk children and for the domestic labour migrant communities of District 7, Ho Chi Minh City. Over the last 23 years, the Cau Han Project has provided support to thousands of children, supporting basic needs, protecting Children’s Rights and providing education and crucial services for vulnerable children and marginalized 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. 

Looking forward to working with you all in the future!

Address: 45/6 Bis Tran Xuan Soan, Tan Thuan Tay Ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City.
