MAISON CHANCE IN DAK NONG
Following the model’s success in delivering a brighter future to the underprivileged in Saigon, Maison Chance has embraced the idea of spreading it to more underprivileged people in Vietnam’s still-challenging regions.
Since 2012, Maison Chance started field trips to find out where the most underprivileged and in need people are, as well as the ideal place to build a new center. Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Lam Dong, Dak Nong, and Binh Phuoc are among the Central Highlands provinces visited by the Maison Chance team.
After many visits, Maison Chance decided on Dak Nong province as the best possible place for the new complex, which would be modeled after the Shelter, Take Wings Center, and Village Chance in Saigon.
After agreeing on an appropriate site, Maison Chance started working with the People’s Committee of Dak Nong province to apply for a right of land use and complete the necessary administrative procedures. After a period of work and effort, the Dak Nong province’s authorities offered various favorable conditions for the organization, including granting roughly 3 hectares of land in the Dak Sor commune of the Krong No province, near the Dray Sap waterfall clusters.
Maison Chance began building in 2016 with the laying of the first stones. Since August 2018, Maison Chance Dak Nong partially opened and welcomed the first members after nearly two years of construction. Maison Chance Dak Nong was officially launched and placed into full functioning by the end of 2019. People with disabilities, children from challenging backgrounds, are among the new members of the new facility.
In addition to welcoming new local beneficiaries, Maison Chance Dak Nong received a number of quadriplegics from the Saigon Shelter who require long-term care. The new living environment, which features fresh, airy, open-air as well as innovative treatment methods, is expected to bring them great delight and improve their health.
Maison Chance Dak Nong is a nurturing, health-care, educational, and vocational training facility. In addition, the beneficiaries here take part in modern therapeutic approaches such as farming, cultivating organic vegetables, and rearing goats, chickens, and ducks, among other things. This method aims to provide the beneficiaries with confidence and a sense of connection to nature, as well as an additional source of food to supplement their daily meals.
The Center, in addition to serving as a social center for disabled people and underprivileged children, is also a favorite destination for explorers and volunteer tourism. Maison Chance Dak Nong offers ecotourism, volunteer trips, and dining facility, as well as guest rooms with a capacity of up to 40 people, in order to collect funds for operations.
