Saigon Children’s Charity USA (SCC USA) was founded in 1999 for the purpose of supporting its sister organization in Vietnam, Saigon Children Charity (SCC). Since then, we have grown to serve the Vietnamese community as well as raising awareness for SCC's programs in Vietnam.
SCC is committed to the elimination of poverty in Vietnam through education. Our vision is to enable disadvantaged children to reach their full potential through receiving quality education relevant to their needs. We do this by ensuring the most disadvantaged children, including those with developmental disabilities, receive a good education, maintain good health and sustain themselves and their families. Education is, we believe, the most lasting and effective way we can help children and their families to escape from the cycle of poverty.
SCC USA has adopted a new project, the Vietnam Learning, Arts & Cultural Center (VLACC), formerly known as The New York Vietnamese School. VLACC is dedicated to promoting and integrating Vietnamese arts, culture and language within the Vietnamese community primarily in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
