PeaceTrees VietNam works alongside the people of Quang Tri Province to heal the land, build community, and plant futures in central Vietnam. Every day, their humanitarian programs help accomplish these goals through the removal of the explosive remnants of war, assistance to accident survivors and their families, mine risk education, and economic development through agriculture programs, microcredit lending, and the building of kindergartens and libraries.
Healing the Wounds of War
For nearly 20 years, Seattle-area volunteers and supporters have come together to heal the wounds of war in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam. PeaceTrees VietNam kindergartens transform the lives of hundreds of children in Quang Tri by providing access to education, a warm meal, and a safe place to grow up in one of the most war-torn provinces in Vietnam.
These children will be able to learn Vietnamese and receive the community support they need to realize their bright futures.
Thanks to the inspiring Seattle community of volunteers and supporters, in 2014/2015, PeaceTrees VietNam announced their tenth kindergarten, enabling even more children to be empowered through educational opportunities. This school will serve the rural community of Xi Nuc, in Huong Hoa District, where many children experience food insecurity and grow up speaking the languages of their village, not the Vietnamese spoken in their schools. Now, these children will be able to learn Vietnamese and receive the community support they need to realize their bright futures.
