Empowering poor communities
with sustainable futures
SUNSHINE BOYS AND GIRLS HOME
Our Sunshine Homes provide a caring home environment where these orphaned, abandoned or children from highly vulnerable circumstances are safe, healthy, and empowered with access to the educational and self-development opportunities they need to define their own futures. Services include residential care, healthcare, mental health counselling, academic education, vocational training, personal and life skills development, extracurricular activities (including Arts, Music & Sports).
TAY NINH RESIDENTIAL CENTRE FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED CHILDREN
Our Centre functions as both a residential home and educational centre providing these children with visual impairments and other disabilities with long-term, specialised residential care, nutrition, healthcare, education (including formal education, rehabilitation, specialised education, and life skills training), recreational activities and vocational training. The use of toxic defoliants such as Agent Orange during the Vietnam-America War, inadequate access to health education and monitoring and a lack of medical and nutritional care have contributed to a high level of visual impairment which still persists in Tay Ninh Province today (the hardest hit Province with the toxin across the whole country during the war).
CAPITAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME
SCHOOL RAINWATER INITIATIVE
Climate change poses immediate water security risks in Ben Tre Province and the Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta School Rainwater Initiative in partnership with Gravity Water, addresses these challenges. The initiative installs innovative rainwater harvesting and filtration technologies in schools, starting with a pilot project in the Ba Tri District. This aims to enhance water resilience and readiness, offering a model for broader regional impact.
BICYCLE SUPPORT PROGRAMME
The Bicycle Support Programme provides bicycle kits, safety helmets and road safety training to children from extremely poor families. Bicycles provide children, particularly those living in rural areas, a means of transportation to and from school. Thus, providing children with bicycles can result in improved educational outcomes by increasing school attendance and reducing dropout rates.
BLUE SKIES GER VILLAGE
Our Blue Skies Ger Village in Mongolia’s capital city, Ulaanbaatar, provides critical support to these neglected children. CNCF provides both temporary shelter and permanent housing to children who are orphaned, living on the streets or are otherwise unable to stay at home due to abuse or risk of exploitation. Children receive comprehensive care including health, psychological rehabilitation, education and vocational training along with life skills development. At the age of 18 years old, residents go on to CNCF’s transition home where we provide further support for tertiary education through our Noble Education Programme. This support is available until these young adults graduate, secured sustainable employment and are able to live independently.
Our Give-A-Ger Programme provides homeless families and vulnerable families at risk of homelessness or living in dangerous and inhabitable conditions with a warm, safe, sustainable, and fully furnished ger (a traditional Mongolian home) of their own. Our social workers remain in close contact with all families to monitor their progress and provide additional support if necessary. By providing families with a functional and secure home, in addition to intensive coordinated humanitarian services, CNCF works to promote their healthy physical and mental health and empowers their confidence to embark on a brighter future.
