Maison Chance, founded by Ms. Aline Rebeaud (Hoang Nu Ngoc Tim) in 1993, serves as a “springboard” for disabled people, orphans, and children from challenging backgrounds in Vietnam. The fact that disabled people and underprivileged children live together as a family is a unique feature of Maison Chance. Accommodation, medical care (including physical therapy), education, and vocational training are all provided at no cost.
Furthermore, disadvantaged children and people with physical disabilities have access to education, vocational training, and employment opportunities. Maison Chance is designed to help disadvantaged people and children recover and re-entry back to society. At Maison Chance, the proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” is constantly put into practice.
The Maison Chance’s activities take place in four locations: The Shelter (accommodation), Take Wing Center (vocational training – job creation), Village Chance (primary school and adapted apartments for the disabled), and Maison Chance Social Center in Dak Nong province (accommodation, medical care, primary school, special needs classes, vocational training, and organic agriculture).
