At the fast growing Phu Quoc island more and more kids hanging around in the streets: begging for money, selling lottery tickets and are not going to school. They are from very poor families with difficult social backgrounds and usually nobody takes care about them. So they are spending their days here like 'street kids'.
Our charity project supports these kids by providing them a safe central place for playing, learning and eating. Also our location is open for 'normal' kids from the neighbourhood, so that they all can come together and the poor kids are not feeling isolated from the society. We are calling this concept 'social inclusion'.
