Mission

Our Mission

SCC is committed to the elimination of poverty in Vietnam through education.

Our Vision

Our vision is to enable disadvantaged children to reach their full potential through receiving quality education relevant to their needs. We do this by ensuring the most disadvantaged children, including those with developmental disabilities, receive a good education, maintain good health, and sustain themselves and their families.

Education is, we believe, the most lasting and effective way we can help children and their families to escape from the cycle of poverty.
