Life on the streets is dangerous. Hanoi’s street kids are children who have come to the city from rural areas to escape extreme hardship… but instead, they become targets for abuse, human trafficking and exploitation.
Blue Dragon is always here to lend a hand. We create hope for street children – hope for a safe home, an education, and a better life.
What we do
Blue Dragon takes a holistic approach to protecting street kids and getting them to safety.
Providing emergency shelter and long-term accommodation options.
Giving kids a place to play, join activities, learn good behaviour, hang out with friends and meet social workers.
Bringing runaways home and working with families to ensure children are safe.
Providing a healthy and nutritious lunchtime meal, sustenance at our shelters and school lunches.
Individual case work with children and families to provide for education, employment, and psychological and physical wellbeing.
Supporting children through the court system, at the police station and to obtain birth certificates and legal documents.
Providing older teenagers and young adults with safe, supported accommodation and preparing them for independent living in the future.
Education and training
Getting kids back to education or training as soon as possible; providing individual tutoring, study groups and workshops.
Whatever it takes
Blue Dragon is out on the streets of Hanoi every night, searching for children who are sleeping rough.
Every child in need of help is offered shelter, food, and a chance to change their life.
The shoeshine boy who dreamt of a better life.
