Place: 

Since this DotCom opened its doors in May 2004, it had helped hundreds of children aged 9-18 years improve their lives. Currently about 100 children benefit from the facility. On average, 18-20 children participate regularly in our training. The foster children usually study for two hours per day at the DotCom. Before or after study, they work selling lottery tickets, shining shoes, collecting empty bottles or cans, etc to supplement family income or meet their own needs.

All children are behind in their schooling and sadly some cannot read and write Vietnamese.
At the DotCom centres, we try to give them a glimmer of hope.

The Tu Xuong DotCom was originally located at 15 Tu Xuong in District 3 of Ho Chi Minh City before temporarily moving to 5 Truong Quyen, District 3 in 2010.
