Hoping to join OBV Family

A beautiful young girl was borned in 2003. No money to pay the hospital, abandoned by her father at birth, her mother sneaked out the hospital without a birth certificate. The baby grew up but couldn't attend school because there is no proper paperwork. At the young age, she began selling lottery tickets for a living. Eventhough she didn't get to go to school but daily dealing with the lottery tickets sale gave her the ability for quick calculation and good with numbers. She followed the children in her neighborhood to learn how to read and write.

OBV Staff Training Oct 2014

Within an hour, Dr. Thanh-Tam Nguyen had clearly explained to staff The United Nations' definition of Human Trafficking as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by improper means (such as force, abduction, fraud, or coercion) for an improper purpose including forced labor or sexual exploitation as well as the U.S. Government's definition of Sex Trafficking as a facet of Human Trafficking. Therefore, the mission of OBV is within the definition and scope of Human Trafficking, and focuses in child sex exploitation and trafficking.

Girl Scout Junior Donation

On Saturday 8/30/2014, One Body Village was the proud recipient of the Lien Doan Chi Lang 1279' s Girl Scout Junior 2014 Bronze Award Junior Journey.

The four ten-years-old girls chose to fundraise for One Body Village. It is their year-long fundraising project for their Junior Journey, a leadership adventure and the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. Their goal was $500. However, with their passion and parental support, they were able to raise $2,760.00. What a committed achievement!

One Body Village sincerely appreciates the Girl Scout Juniors for their leadership and support of OBV Mission.

Wishing All a Blessed and Bountiful Thanksgiving

 

 

Dear OBV Children, Staff, Benefactors, Supporters, and Volunteers,

Thanksgiving is not just a few days of shopping, feasting, or being off from work, but an occasion to cultivate and express gratitude. Medical researches have shown that people who feel and show gratefulness increase their levels of happiness and optimism.

"Thankfulness creates gratitude, which generates contentment that causes peace." –Todd Stocker

At OBV, we count our blessings from all of you and from each and everyone of us. We make our blessings count, work diligently, gratefully, and happily with what we have, and seek to achieve more.

We wish you all happy and blessed Thanksgiving. We thank YOU for "Be a Voice, Lend a Hand, to Make a Difference, and Save a Life."

OBV Board of Directors

Visit our website OneBodyVillage.org often to get updated information about our work; to get dates and locations of upcoming events; and to get involved so that you too can continue to BE A VOICE, LEND A HAND, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, and SAVE A LIFE.

Dad's coming home

Knowing Dad was coming home, after eating lunch, the children tried to smarten themselves up and stood at the door to wait for Dad. But later, they all could go to the bus station to pick him up.

OBV mailing address


We apologize that your mails and kind donations may have been returned during the transitions to the new mailing address in the last two months.  This issue has been resolved.  If possible, please re-send your mail to us:

One Body Village 445 Sugar Gate Court, Lawrenceville, GA 30044

Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

On receipt of an email from uncle (an endearing term I use for Father Thong) about a request for help from OBV as their daughter has been missing for over two weeks along with her friend also in 8th grade, I tried to find a way to contact the victim's family and arranged a meeting the next day at their home, which is close to mine.

Within about 15 minutes, I received another email from the mother which started with an apology before enquiring about the fees we charge for finding and rescuing her daughter so the family can try to work something out. Honestly, I was quite stunned to receive this email. Luckily, she apologised first. I responded that OBV operates as a non-profit organisation, so if it is within our capacity we will do all we can to assist for free and assured her that the family should not be concerned about this. (When we met later, I realised why she had asked such a question.)
