Still in the land & in this province we receive

these news sometimes, even more than 40 years

has passed after that WAR had ended.

(by Tuoi Tre, 18th, Aug.2017)


We have to realize that

war makes us hatred

& it’ll be handed over long time.



In this week we’re making written information

in our cafe.

I wish their tour is fruitful!

I went to a small private special school

to do inspections with my friends the other day.

The principal of the school cares disabled children

with some staffs in his center,

even though he himself has visual defects.

Under great disadvantage,

praiseworty person like him devotes oneself for others.

At this school, I keenly realize the necessity of

social safety nets for vulnerable Groups .

We visited two weaving groups to purchase their hand loomed fabric.

Both of them have done the work very beautifully.

Thank them a lot.

We still have some problems to be solved.

We’ll solve them one by one, &  proceed to the next step, sewing work.

We’re striving for making goods of high quality.

Please have a good weekend !




It’s started summer holidays!

In U Café 3 student staffs have started working.

They’re doing their best for you

being pleasant and enjoyable in the café.

Please be good friends of them!


Working is not just to draw one’s income

but also to give something to one’s surrounding people

as you know.

I wish them to know it & joy of working.

We got a good news from CoTu weavers very recently.

They’ve finished weaving items which U Café had ordered.

I’m expecting that they’ve weaved well as a design drawing.

Next issue of the project is sewing.

So far they have fewer experiences for sewing

& don’t have confidence to do it.

For supporting them, we’ve been studying sewing too.

Today two of us visited a garment factory for leather article.

We’ll go to get items shortly.

Yesterday, I visited A Tieng, the capital of huyen Tay Giang,

to join the final workshop of NGO Malteser International (MI).

This NGO has been supporting people in this prefecture

for 10 years by some projects for their better lives. activity presentation

Participants had an intense brainstorming session in it.

I was taught  a lot of ways to support work from

MI members & participants.

Thank you for them.
