Open M

Sometimes I'll receive messages from acquaintances, and other times from complete strangers. Some share stories of happiness in their lives, while others are deeply immersed in sadness... some share stories of their past sexual abuse, of being a sex slave... In those moments, I can only say 'Thank you for sharing your story'.

In a seminar organized by Open M. yesterday, to discuss of the work done to help the survivors, I said just that. Thank you, for sharing your stories of overcoming the darkest period of your lives. Of continuing to succeed in your lives and in turn helping other survivors.

Sex Education in Soc Trang


It was a beautiful day in September....Everybody was dripping in sweat from the heat in Soc Trang. I couldn't help but feel a twinge of pity for the students, sitting in the stuffy hall, listening to the teachers lecture on sex education. One couldn't tell if everyone was red from blushing at this usually taboo topic, or if they were just red from the sweltering heat.

It's a pretty well known fact that kids out in the rural areas don't learn much -- if anything at all -- about sex education, or any kind of skills or defense to protect themselves from child sex abuse. They, like any other child around the world, had the right and deserved to be educated on these matters that would otherwise be swept under the rug.

Mother, Am I Pregnant?

Way down the south of Vietnam, in a poor seaside village in Ben Tre Province, a 6 year old innocently asked her mother "am I pregnant?? My friends at school say that I am...what does 'pregnant' mean?"
This is the innocence that still resonates from this innocent child, who was raped on her way back from school. She was a special case, one that OBV had visited and suggested to take in to help her with her recovery and education.

The GET consists of three members who are representatives of countries of Australia, Canada and USA – namely Mr. Nguyễn Tấn Phát, Ms. Nguyễn Angela and Ms. Nguyễn Thị Diễm Phượng.

The GET oversees the administrations to ensure the VISION and MISSION of OBV continue to be enforced and carried out in South East Asia (Việt Nam – Lao – Cambodia and Malaysia).

A new website was officially launched at the Nha Nam book store. A project by travel blogger Dinh Hang in collaboration with her friends who have a common passion of recording life as it happens, through beautiful pictures and photography.

The pictures in the gallery are not just for art, but all money raised from selling the pictures will be donated to a charity organization once every 3 months. OBV was lucky to be chosen as the first organization on the receiving end of the money raised for the 3 months starting July 13th, 2017.

Mr. Micheal Chan To conversing with Ms. Yen Thao – president of the organization

On December 12th, 2012, the Nhip Cau Hanh Phuc organization (OBV VN) was honored to meet Mr. Micheal Chan To – a professor who teaches cosmetology and massage therapy from Canada, visited and worked with the organization.

The discussion with Mr. Micheal Chan To was fairly open, as he states: “I am Buddhist, but I applaud the works Father Thong has done; that makes me want to contribute my efforts to help the children. When I became a volunteer, I received many blessings.” After sharing important information, he will organize his time and start his teaching and training period for the children of the OBV family.

Thank you very much Mr. Micheal Chan To. May God bless you and your family with peace always. .
