The Green Bamboo Warm Shelter is a homeless shelter for street children aged 8 - 16. We provide a safe home and caring environment, food, education, health care, and everything else the children need to survive. 
In Vietnam there is a growing problem with homeless children, and there are no social services to care for them. UN statistics state that at least 70% of street children have been sexually abused, as well as being vulnerable to criminal exploitation, forced labor, physical Abuse, emotional abuse, etc.
At the Green Bamboo we identify and intercept at risk youths, as well as providing a shelter for our long term beneficiaries. We have a drop-in service for teenagers who are most at risk, and provide training courses, counselling, assistance with housing and job placements, and much more. Our goal is to be the safe house for all of Ho Chi Minh City's most desolate children, the people they can turn to when they most need help, and we coordinate with all other children's shelters in the city so that we can help every child who passes through our doors.
We are primarily funded by the Child Welfare Association of Ho Chi Minh City, the city's oldest NGO, however as they support many worthy causes in the city, we still need help from outside sources. Our SPI project that focuses on teenagers is in danger of having to close down, our children's shelter is currently only able to house 50% of the children that we have space for, and our staff are exhausted from always having to work over time. 
We are looking for monthly supporters to help us keep our shelter alive. Without the generous donations from people like yourself, we wouldn't be able to provide the services we do. For as little as $5 a month, you could provide essential life skills to a teenager for a whole year, which in turn would help them to avoid sexual trafficking, or forced labour.
Please remember we are a small project, mostly ran by volunteers - because of this, there are no administrative fees involved with your donation, every cent goes directly to the children, thank you.
