Tinh Khoi! Congratulations!

Our warmest congratulations to Tinh Khoi, the first of hopefully many OBV daughters who has successfully been admitted into Street International - an organization headed by Neal F. Bermas, PhD.

The course will last 18 months, with classes including English, life skills, F&B business and/or culinary arts (trainees are able to take on either). The curriculum closely follows that of the Institute of Culinary Education - USA.

Our OBV family sends our wishes for successful studies to build a brighter future for herself and her family.

Christmas Season

Follow the spiritutality of Father Martino Nguyen Ba Thong, the children of OBV Vietnam and Campuchia won't receive or give gifts. Instead, as an offering to Jesus on his birthday, they will do some good deeds and make sacrifices for their families, relatives, friends, and neighbours.

In this picture, the children of OBV Cambodia list down the good deeds that they will do this Christmas, and hang them on their tree. In Vietnam, the children will save a part of the December allowance to donate to the homeless on January 12th, 2018, as Father Martino has done every year for his birthday (Jan 13).

Thank You, My Dear Mother

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the supporters who have helped me to be where I am now. Sometimes it's still surreal to me. I'm a 12th grader now, but it feels like a dream. Where would I be if I had not been picked up and protected by OBV?? Would i be at peace, would I be attending school?

Absolutely not.

An Exhibition of Lacquered Artwork

Mother Ngoc took our children of OBV to an exhibition of lacquered artwork honoring artist Tinh Truc Gia last Saturday. The artwork was a tribute, with all of Tinh Truc Gia's student gathering to display all they had learnt from their teacher. It was beautiful and deep, and the presentation that accompanied the pieces left the children feeling hopeful and full of admiration.

On that particular day, Mother Ngoc was especially proud of little U, one of OBV's newest family members, talking very politely to the mother of one of the artists.
