Maison Chance works to create permanent changes to the living conditions of the under-privileged children and disabled in Vietnam. By providing a shelter, education, training and family cohesion to these groups of people who have been previously rejected by society, we create the necessary conditions for their re-entry into normal community live. It is because of our clear mission and commitment to children and disabled that Maison Chance has been recognized as one of the best run ONG in Vietnam and has received a number of awards.
2001 – Henry Dunant Award
The Prix Henry Dunant is intended to bring attention and credit to the efforts of those who, like Henry Dunant before them, embody a spiritual commitment in fighting for human dignity with their research, their ideas, and their gift for communication.
Each year, the Main Dans La Main Foundation awards the MDM Prize (CHF 50,000) to a person who has particularly distinguished him/herself in a humanitarian program for the benefit of children.

Since the creation of the Federation in 2009 and the regrouping all the Maison Chance organizations worldwide, an effort is under way to establish a consolidated financial statement for this organization as a whole. The first step is for the Associations in the different countries to harmonize their books based on a common accounting definition and procedure. Next, we plan to publish the audited financial statements for the whole organization in 2010. Currently only the financial statements for 2009 of Maison Chance Vietnam and of Maison Chance USA are made public.
