Open Seminar at the Parish of Tan Phuoc, Sai Gon

It was another Sunday morning with no rest for the wicked. With a special invitation for the father of the Parish, OBV's psychology team headed out to give another seminar on the "Prevention of child sex abuse", to over 600 of the youth at the Parish of Tan Phuoc in Tan Binh Saigon. With such a big group ranging in different age groups, we decided it was necessary to split us the seminar into 2 Sundays: 2/10 and 9/10.

There were a few issues with the audio system as the hall was too full, but as always, with the cooperation with the sisters and voluteers and youth group leaders at the Parish, the seminars were still considered a success.

It's always inspiring to see the active participation of members of the congregation, and especially more so when parents of the children join in, as it's quite rare for parents to ever talk about sex education, let alone the prevention of child sex abuse with their children in Vietnam. OBV thanks the Parish and youth group leaders for wanting to learn more about this important cause, and reaching out to OBV VN to provide an educational experience for all.
