Help us Build a School and Leave a Legacy

Our Story
: As former "Boat People" refugees from the Vietnam war, in everything we do, we believe in 2nd chance.

We believe in giving differently. The way we give 2nd chance is by providing education to underserved children, creating jobs for forgotten parents, and empowering ownership to villagers. 

We just happen to build 100 schools globally. Want to help us Build a School and Leave a Legacy?

Our Accomplishments: Since 2016, our 501.c.3 has funded 82 schools, bridges, scholarships, and educational projects in America, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Kenya, and (soon) India and Laos.  

Our Biggest Budget for a 5-room School in Kenya, Africa (Phase I) is now fully funded. The Girl Empowerment Learning Center costs $12,000 USD.  Our Founders Jimmy & Lily Thai donated $6,000 USD to start and your generosity did the rest. Now you can help 1,000's kids in Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, India, and Laos by taking part in our Final 5K Walk for Dreams fundraise on 9/26/2021 in San Diego, Orange County, San Francisco/San Jose, Houston, Washington DC, Taiwan, and Vietnam.  You can donate on our easy, user-friendly GiveSmart platform.  Every dollar counts, and your Legacy will last for generations.  Thank YOU for making a difference.
