The volunteers will support an orphanage run by monks, which was built in the early 20th century, and is quite famous in Ho Chi Minh City. The orphanage is now a place of charity for unlucky children and also helps treat diseases. Now the monks are taking care of and bringing up more than 200 children from the South of Vietnam. The children here have unfortunate backgrounds as many have been abandoned by their parents and relatives.

Every few months, the monks find a new baby left in front of the pagoda gate. The head monk sometimes receives phone calls from hospitals requesting him to take in abandoned babies. At the moment, about 200 children are living in the orphanage; their ages ranging from 5 days old to 40 years old. 90 of these are orphans that are suffering from cerebral palsy, blindness or Down syndrome. At present, about 30-40 local children have the chance to study at the orphanage as some local teachers teach them Vietnamese in the morning.

Volunteers will spend time with the children and help improving their English, organizing games and other activities for them. Volunteers will also do some manual work to improve the houses and classrooms of the children, like painting and cleaning the area. Volunteers will get closer to the children's life and try to build up wider horizons for the children and encourage them to learn better for a brighter future.
