AGENDA OF THE 4TH CELEBRATION OF HUONG DUONG CENTRE
Sincerely to: Authorities, Offices, Associations, Businessmen and Companies, Contributors and Donors from nation wide and overseas
I/ Activities Report of the past 4 years of HDC:
Huong Duong Centre is under administration from DOLISA of Binh Duong Province and was established according to the decision No. 917/QD/UBND of Binh Duong People's Committee, signed on 24-3-2010 and founded by the teacher Nguyen The Vinh.
Huong Duong’s mission is to offer a full patronage and education/training of academy and living skills free of charge to disabled children and orphans who have lost their parent(s) to a loss in labor ability, with ages ranging from grade 6 till their graduation from universities.
Thanks to the contributions from our donors, Huong Duong Centre has been carrying a long lasting and stable program to give a helping hand to children with special backgrounds mentioned above so that they can go farther to university completion and will have a chance to study overseas as long as their study outcomes are excellent. Also we help them build living skills for breaking their poverty circle. As they become successful citizens, they would have plenty of opportunities helping the next generations in return.
After the 4 years since our foundation, Huong Duong Centre is now a lever for 86 students (kindly see attached the list of the students), including: 47 university students (among of those are 5 students studying in Japan and 4 more to leave for studying in Japan on Sep 21st and Oct 1st, 2014.); 7 college students; and 31 ones attending secondary and high schools. Especially, the rate of passing university and college exams is 100% annually. Most went to the prestige national universities such as HCMC University of Technology, University of Banking, University of Economics and Law, University of Natural Sciences, Pedagogical and Technological University, Sai Gon University, University of Transport and Communications, University of Information Technology, Ho Chi Minh City Medicine and Pharmacy University, and so on… More and more students is passing the exams with high marks.
Beside the study, these students also learn how to cook, do the cleaning up, grow veggies, raise cattle, build some constructions and do the maintenance for the centre building and classrooms, with equipments specialized in groups: raising and growing workers, building workers, dwellers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers.

Total incomes: 7,915,779,809 VND
Total expenses: 6,795,193,304 VND
Balanced: 1,120,586,505 VND
II/ Advantages and Disadvantages:
During our first 4 years since the foundation with the generous contributions from Deutsche Bank 60% and other noble Donors 40%, Huong Duong centre has a stable financial source and a capacity for creating the following factors:
- High qualified Teachers and Staff
- The quality of study outcomes of the students
- The students’ development (accordingly to the attached internal regulations)
There is a big change this year: Deutsche Bank will only sponsor 10,000 USD (reduced up to 80%) and will stop their donation the next years. Therefore, Huong Duong will have a lack of finance of 1 billion dong each year.
Facing this difficult situation, I – Nguyen The Vinh, on behalf of the centre, would like to seek for your contributions and establish a Fundraising Board who supervise and support Huong Duong’s cause, which will enable the disadvantaged children to have opportunity to continue their studies and will habor others’ dreams to a better future.
