Education and Economic Development


Cultivating a bright future through education and economic development

In low-income Vietnamese communities that continue to struggle because of the terrible legacy of the war, PeaceTrees Vietnam develops critical infrastructure to promote education, economic growth and stable lives.

We build kindergartens and libraries and develop programs to improve nutrition, support better agricultural practices and protect domestic violence survivors. PeaceTrees helps rural farmers pursue cash crops, such as growing black pepper, so they have a sustainable means of supporting their families. With the support of our generous donors, we help entire communities grow and thrive.

Current Project Spotlight: Prinh Thanh

The PeaceTrees Prin Thanh Kindergarten is located in Prin Thanh Village of A Doi Commune, Huong Hoa District. There are 60 kindergarten-age children. Prior to the construction of the new classroom, only 35 of these children attended kindergarten in the village’s one-room classroom. The remaining children were enrolled in Kindergarten in Doan and Paroi villages, which are about 2 km away from Prin Thanh Village. Because of the distance between the children’s homes and the classrooms, these children attended kindergarten infrequently. The additional classroom in Prin Thanh Village is now enabling all 60 of the village’s children to attend class regularly and benefit from local early childhood education. Prin Thanh kindergarten construction is complete and the classroom has been handed over to the community and put into use for new school-year (2020-2021)!
