Building hope and success, one community at a time
Restoring land to safety isn’t enough to restore prosperity to regions devastated by the war. We also engage Vietnamese communities in building important infrastructure and economic opportunity to help them thrive.
Because we work in partnership with Quảng Trị communities rather than dictating the help that we think we should provide, people who have felt victimized and powerless gain confidence in being able to shape their own futures. PeaceTrees transforms lives — both for the residents of Quảng Trị and for the citizen diplomats from America who travel there with PeaceTrees to foster peace, appreciate each other’s cultures and build community among our two nations.
The landmine and unexploded ordnance contamination in Quảng Trị Province greatly hinders community building—the creation of homes, schools, libraries and other gathering places. PeaceTrees Vietnam believes that community building is an essential part of its work of creating safe and healthy futures for the people of Vietnam.
