disparity facing developing countries. Sometimes when these factors come together in a place like Vietnam, with tourists from all over the world traveling here, bad things begin to happen.

Pedophilia is a serious problem that we have observed in our town. Although, Nha Trang seems like paradise, the specter of child sex crime has raised its ugly head.

We decided that we couldn’t ignore it. This is something that we felt strongly about.

We made thousands of T-shirts bearing the slogan “Hands off the kids” and started giving them away to the vulnerable working children in our town & other towns. We tried to educate the children about the problem of pedophilia and bust the pedophiles out of town as well.

We have been quite astounded by the support and kindness of so many tourists that see the T-shirts and the idea of this work.

Buy one, wear it.

Besides, we also have free school in the back garden. Any volunteer English teacher is welcomed, two classes every morning from 10:00 – 11:30, Monday to Saturday. Two classes every afternoon from 17:30 – 19:00, Monday to Friday. Sign your name up at Hands off the Kids counter.

On the first Sunday of the month, we take the children out for a day trip. Join us if you are bored to death … 🙂

It might only be a drop in the bucket, but if it prevents one child’s ruin, then we have done something.

Join us to establish school for street kids, any donation is welcome. Together, we WILL make it happen. Thank you for supporting the “Hands off the kids” campaign.
