To learn about the course, many attendees left home to the missionary station to attend Mass and the training of "Parenting Skills" at 4 AM on Sunday.
"To meet again", our group departed for the "Parenting Skills" training camp. The destination is Long Xuan Thoi, Can Tho - a missionary station. This trip was very special for me. Before I went, I was informed that people at the travel site are very poor with very limited literacy. After interacting with the local people, my mind had opened to experience a lot more things. In my opinion, local people are not "poor", even "very rich" on the other.
Leaving Soc Trang, we headed to Phu Thu, Cai Rang District, Can Tho city to continue "parenting skills" training workshop.
Coincidentally, when we came, the local town also implemented Decree 704 - project of "Educating 5 million mothers to be good parents" in year 2010-2015. So many people had come.
Two day of parenting skill training on Dec 9th and 10th, 2014 at Dai Ngai, Long Phu district, Soc Trang province has been ended with the love of group memebers and attendees.
We were impressed upon arrival by the walm and attentive welcome of local staff, the full participation, punctuality and enthusiasm of the attendees. They attended this traing program not only for their own knowledge, but they also want to share them to other families in their local town and villages.
Got the invitation from the chair of Women Union in Long Phu district - Soc Trang, OBV Vietnam has organized parenting skill courses at Dai Ngai.
Through that training, OBV Vietnam hopes that the attendees - also trainers - will impart the knowlegde received from those courses to other families; with the purposes of working together to bring happiness to each family, to prevent evils happen to their children, especially trafficking and child sex slavery.

This is my first trip and first time I have been, and stayed at the Western River longer than my previous trips that have bolted before this. I was able to lived, to perceived the love, and to understand the life and its people here.
Oct 11, 2013 we left Saigon at 5pm, in the sudden pouring rain, to begin our four days trip to two cities of Hau Giang and Bac Lieu. At 9:30 pm, we stopped at Can Tho for a night rest and continued to Hau Giang next morning.
