Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation
Working in Vietnam with the most vulnerable children, Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation supports street kids, children with disabilities, the rural poor, and victims of trafficking.
Blue Dragon has established several unique programs which address issues keeping children and families in the poverty cycle. They employ psychologists and lawyers to work directly with children and take an unique, individualized case work approach in Vietnam.
Children may be in the programs for a few months, or several years, depending upon the level of their need. Blue Dragon’s main aim is to help kids go to school or receive vocational training. They support them to do so until they no longer need formal education.
Blue Dragon’s support for child victims of trafficking involves short-term rescue operations, as well as long-term support for them to return home and continue at school. They work with the local media and government to help them understand and fight the causes of child trafficking to impact generations to come.
Their greatest successes are when children or young people in the programs no longer need their support.
Your contribution through UTC 2013 participation ensures more disadvantaged children can find their way out of poverty.
We have asked participants to each raise at least $500 for Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation to show their support in building an opportunity for children to escape poverty and move towards a bright and optimistic future.
Intrepid Travel is devoted to the efforts of the 2013 UTC and will match all donations dollar for dollar up to $10,000.
As a result, everything you raise for Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation will receive double!
