A social enterprise run for women by women

In Vietnam…

… women and children still face the difficulties and disadvantages of a society with many traditional views and morals.

There is little governmental or societal support for women who are domestic violence victims, single mothers, and/or otherwise disenfranchised.

The gap between socioeconomic classes is exacerbated by inconsistent standards of education; lack of quality education in poorer and rural areas feeds into the cycle of poverty.

More and more women are choosing to work in business, but many Vietnamese businesswomen – especially single mothers – struggle to balance their work with their household duties.

Domestic violence


58% of married Vietnamese women experience domestic violence at least once in their life.



Less than 20% of primary school students have the opportunity to learn English.



Vietnam ranked 19th in the Mastercard Index of Women Entrepreneurs 2017 and was placed 7th in terms of the rate of women business owners.

About us                     

“Coins for Change” (C4C) is a social enterprise run by women for the purpose of promoting equal rights and social justice for women and children in Vietnam.

Officially established in December 2015, C4C now offers a wide range of services related to cultural exchange and business within Vietnam, done through our two programs :
The Empowerment Plan and Teach for Change. 

                       Our programs


Encourage and empower vulnerable women

C4C aims to support disadvantaged women from multiple demographics, including single mothers in Vietnam, disabled women, ethnic minority women, domestic violence victims, and more. C4C aids these marginalized groups through a holistic approach that includes support from an expansive online network, free vocational training, job placement, and free English classes for children.
