Nothing stays the same for good. Life is a chain of changes and chances.

Loreto is in a  transition time when the outgoing CEO – Trish Franklin – is about to leave her ‘second home’ to be back in her family’s arms after twenty years in Vietnam and thirty years in Southeast Asia. The most significant chapter of her life book has been written in this beautiful country. Her footprints have inked on every road to poverty. Her warm heart has followed her to thousands of desperate lives. We bow to the values that she has created. We bow to her boundless love towards the children of Vietnam. 

The legacy of her work will be inherited by the local Team with dedicated and committed staff. Trish is going - yet Loreto will keep moving forward. As Patron of Loreto Trish will pass her wisdom to the Team and will continue to support Loreto with her surpassing efforts.

The best of luck to your coming journey.

‘Good bye ’n See ya’ again, dearest Trish’. 

Ha My: CEO

     “Remember the past…” When two Loreto Team members first visited Dong Thoi 2 Primary School in Cai Nuoc District, Ca Mau Province in May 2015, our hearts dropped to see such a dismal, discouraging learning environment and a primitive library or a “barn” – to put it more correctly.

    Social Pilgrimages have been valuable and well-worth-doing programs that make a difference and have run by John XXIII College (JTC) from Perth, Western Australia, to ‘top up’ the student’s social awareness. Groups of students randomly picked every year by JTC and come to Vietnam annually. 

The Loreto Program is proud and honored to have Thanh Bui as our AMBASSADOR.  read more
