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

     “Why do so many generous people from other countries love to visit Vietnam? Why does the Loreto Team passionately and persistently visit remote schools and rural children?”

    These two thought-provoking questions were posed by Tam – Deputy CEO of Loreto Kids Charity – at the local gathering for the official “Distribution of 250 School Packs” for the far-flung and remote students at Dong Thoi 2 Primary School, Cai Nuoc District, Ca Mau (the southernmost Province in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam) on Thursday morning, 20th August

    Notes from Loreto Team’s Rural Travel

    If you or your children have ever complained or disbelieved in the true power of learning, join a field trip with Loreto Kids Charity to an astonishingly poor and isolated school (in fact it’s two school campuses – on the same bitterly touching rural premises for pre-school and elementary children.) and you will be surprisingly changed by the impoverished lives of grubby kids of Khmer origin and their families.

    The School Year is coming and the children of Lien Trung Primary School are eagerly waiting for new learning experiences. However, for these kids (and their parents), the start of the School Year also means the start of even more worries. One of these concerns is whether they have sufficient learning equipment: exercise books, pens, pencils, etc. Loreto Kids Charity understands this worry and that is why on August 8, we joined hands with Mayer Brown JSM to provide these kids with a better means of education.
