HSCV (Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam) has been dedicated to delivering vital aid and support to children, women, and families residing in rural areas of Vietnam for over 20 years.
Our organization is deeply committed to improving the lives of families in rural Vietnam through a diverse range of initiatives. Our projects encompass various areas, including education and vocational opportunities, infrastructure enhancement for schools and community centers, the improving of living standards and sanitation conditions, facilitation of access to healthcare services and overall well-being improvement, and fostering economic development within families throughout the region.
We are actively engaged in promoting gender equality and advocating for the fundamental rights of children and women in Vietnam. We firmly believe in the power of equality and work tirelessly to create an inclusive society that empowers every individual to thrive and succeed.
Through our extensive experience and unwavering dedication, we have witnessed firsthand the transformative impact that our programs have had on communities. With the support of generous donors like you, we can continue making a lasting difference and uplifting the lives of those in need.
Join us in our mission to create a brighter future for children, women, and families in rural Vietnam. Together, we can build a more equitable and compassionate society that leaves no one behind.
We strive for a Vietnam where children can learn and thrive without fear, hunger or exploitation... where the rights of women and children are protected and their voices are heard... where homes and communities across Viet Nam have access to the resources they need to chart safe, productive futures.
HSCV provides Vietnam’s most vulnerable groups with the opportunities, tools and resources to build a better future.
When Chuck DeVet and his daughter Annetta visited Vietnam in 2001, they experienced a country emerging from decades of hardship. Wherever they travelled they met ambitious young minds ready to demonstrate Vietnam’s potential to the world. For many of these people the only thing missing was opportunity.
Inspired by the energy they felt in the country, Chuck and Annetta decided to start an organization to provide support to young children. After learning that organizations in active the North of Vietnam were scarce, they made Hanoi and its surrounding provinces their base. HSCV was born.
HSCV team members have a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We work in unity towards the common goal of assisting children, women and families in need in Vietnam. We strive to insure that every dollar is spent wisely and with purpose to produce the maximum benefit for the children.
