About Us




Established in 2006, Children’s Hope in Action (CHIA) is a Non-Government Organization (NGO) operating in Hoi An, central Vietnam. We  believe passionately that it is the right of every child to be raised within a nurturing family environment; to have access to essential services taken for granted by people living in the developed world.  Children who suffer from disabilities, health issuesor extreme poverty, are at high risk of being relinquished into institutional care.  Hundreds of such children are helped by CHIA each month, enabling them to remain in the care of their families.

Children’s Hope in Action seeks to offer culturally, socially and financially appropriate support services to disadvantaged children to provide them with the resources and opportunities they need to achieve success. The services are developed with no political or religious agenda with a main focus on on health, disability, education and housing.

We are registered as a charity in Australia (ABN 88 085 725 085) and licensed to operate in Vietnam. Through our Australian partner Global Development Group, we are able to issue tax-deductible receipts to Australian donors. Our American partner Global Development Group USA has 501(c)(3) approval.
