Village of Hope Disadvantaged Children's Center
Program Overview

For over 19 years, East Meets West has operated the Village of Hope in Da Nang. Built in 1993, construction of the center was funded with a grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Village of Hope is a haven for extremely disadvantaged children, housing 134 orphaned, abandoned and hearing-impaired children. A wide range of activities are made available to all of the children, including: athletics, music, dance, art, theater training, and English as a second language instruction.

More than 450 children have lived in the Village of Hope. Some return to their original homes while others continue on to higher education, advanced vocational training, or enter the workplace with marketable skills. The children grow into young adults with skills to help themselves and their families seek a better quality of life.

Supporting the Village of Hope
Where A Donation Goes

Donations support the whole center, rather than supporting individual children. This allows EMW to provide services that are needed for the entire community and address special needs of each individual child. Children with disabilities, for example, require special care demanding a proportionally larger share of the money that is raised.

$50 a month provides shelter, education and job training to an orphaned or deaf child at EMW's Village of Hope. Make a donation today.

$600 provides care for a year for one child living at the Village of Hope.


“I first became involved with East Meets West after making a visit to their Village of Hope in 1997...I have been connected ever since. To be involved with the staff of EMW, and the children of the orphanages, has been an emotional, healing experience.”

- Dan Knox, Vietnam War Veteran and EMW Donor
