Two Reading Rooms Project

Vietnam No2 OrphanageLocation: The Ha Nam Orphanage in Ha Nam Province and Dong Da Friendship Orphanage in Hanoi

Beneficiaries: 102 children who are residents of the orphanages

The Ha Nam Orphanage was only founded in 1997 and is located in a low income, rural area. Its facilities and equipment are sparce and in poor condition. There are no books or computers for the 42 orphans and abandoned children who live there.

The Dong Da Orphanage has only one small reading room and four very old computers, which doesn’t come close to meeting the educational needs and homework requirements of the 60 orphans who live there.

This project will create a study room in each of these two orphanages. In total, this Vietnam No2 Orphanageproject will purchase six tables, 12 benches, six book shelves, 1,500 books, and six computers. This will enhance the quality of facilities in the orphanages, benefit the children’s studies, current lives, and future opportunities.


  • To enable the children to search more quickly for the information needed for their studies.
  • To help the children relax after long hours of studying by providing options such as listening to music on line, reading comic books, humor books, and more.
  • To strengthen the children’s knowledge and practical skills.
  • To motivate children’s excitement about learning through studying with modern computers and a variety of books.
  • To help the orphanage improve the quality of its nursing and education work.
  • To improve the computer competence and skills of the children so they are able to ultimately pursue higher education and satisfy job requirements.
