The Empowerment Plan

The Empowerment Plan aims to support disadvantaged Vietnamese women, with a focus on single mothers, especially those who are victims of domestic violence and/or teenagers who are unexpectedly pregnant and are ostracised.

Our vision is to provide a comprehensive support mechanism for vulnerable single mothers so that they can re-establish themselves as functional and valued members of society – By increasing their employability, confidence, and independence so that they can provide financial support for themselves and their children in the future. By helping single mothers, we hope to give their children a chance to grow up in a safe, stable, and healthy home and, ultimately, overcome poverty.


Our Mission

  • Online Self-Help Group Support: The original platform through which Coins for Change began existence.

  • Free Vocational TrainingTwo offline workshops are organized monthly for any single mother, who want to learn therapeutic art crafts like embroidery, knitting, crocheting, flower-making and cooking, at our Tay Ho house in Hanoi.
