Support Vietnamese kids in crisis

In late May, our community of forty digital nomads began the journey of a lifetime by joining the *Denali itinerary* with *Remote Year*.

During this twelve month, twelve city trek, we're hoping not only to expand our horizons as individuals but also leave a lasting, positive impact on the communities we meet and interact with—and that’s where you come in!

This month, we’re in Hanoi, Vietnam, and we’re partnering up with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, an organization dedicated to rescuing at-risk children in Vietnam, from children who are homeless, runaways, victims of human trafficking or slavery, or otherwise in danger (addt'l info on Blue Dragon can be found *here*).

To help support this amazing organization, we are volunteering and organizing events here in Hanoi to raise funds, but could use additional help from those that can’t be here with us. Donating whatever you are able—no matter the amount—will greatly help this organization upgrade facilities, purchase clothing/food/materials, and help provide a brighter future for the children here. Thank you for your help!

Want to get the full scoop on Blue Dragon? Here's a bigger download on the incredible services they provide.

*THE PROBLEM:*
For children in Vietnam who are born into poverty, there is little hope for the chance of a better life.

More than 66% of the population lives in rural areas, where rice farming is the major industry and whole families earn as little as $1 – $2 a day.

Children growing up in extreme poverty often have no choice but to quit school and move far from home, exposing them to dangers such as trafficking, homelessness, sexual exploitation, drug abuse, and illness.

*THE SOLUTION:*
Blue Dragon believes that every child deserves exceptional care so that he or she can grow and flourish.

Their services include rescue and crisis care for young people in immediate danger; shelter; legal advocacy; and long term support to return to school and training.

While taking care of each child’s immediate needs, they also invest in community development and long-term change on a systemic scale.

Any help that you can provide will go a long way! Thank you!
