Programs

SEAOF currently has three different programs, and an additional way, by which Donors or Sponsors can help the orphans. They are as follows:

 

1. “HOPE John Heeg - VL-VU-H172-New building for family-Feb,5-2016aHOUSE” CONSTRUCTION DONORS PROGRAM

Once an orphan family has been accepted into our program, a basic house is slated for construction which will be suited for the family. The house has approximately thirty-two square meters of living space (or about 350 square feet), which includes Chinese tile floors, a tin roof, and stucco brick walls. The foundation of every house is built up above the flood-line to prevent flooding when the Mekong River overflows its banks during the monsoon seasons. With rising cost of materials, and based on previous experience with building these structures, we have refined the manner in which we construct these houses. Greater care and increased materials have been added to every foundation of each house, along with other small but significant details in the design of the walls, roof, doors, and windows, will enhance the longevity and also reduce the need for maintenance on every house. These factors also have brought about an increase in the funds required to construct our “Hope Houses,” but in the long-term will actually reduce over-all maintenance costs.

Such a house will be constructed by SEAOF for every donor wishing to enroll in the “Hope House” construction program. You may designate a plaque to be placed upon the house with your name, or your organization’s name on it (as noted on the Enrollment Form). Please understand that we cannot always accommodate your requested plaque inscription because of government regulations in Vietnam. After receipt of the completed enrollment form each donor will receive a House Information Packet which includes a picture of the house and family along with a short history background about the family living in the house. Please allow 12 to 18 months to receive the House Information Packet. The process of inducting a family, performing all of the required investigations, filing all of the required paperwork with the government agencies, scheduling the construction, time involved in building the house, and then compiling all of the information on the entire family can take quite an amount of time; therefore we ask for your patience concerning this matter.

The current cost to construct a single "Hope House" is $2,200.00

If you would like to help with, the construction of a “Hope House” please first complete the Online Enrollment Form by clicking the "Online Enrollment" button directly below, and for your convenience you may also donate the required funds online by clicking the "Donate Online" button below, or visiting the "Donate" page.

After receipt of the completed Enrollment Form each sponsor will receive an Orphan Information Packet which includes a picture and a short history background about the child.

4. ONE TIME CONTRIBUTIONS - GENERAL FUND

Individual contributions are gladly accepted and will be used as designated by the contributor. If you wish to help these children and be a part of this ministry to the orphans of Vietnam, but do not necessarily wish to enroll in any of our programs you may contribute to our General Fund.

SEAOF always has urgent needs to be met, and a donation to SEAOF’s General Fund can help us do this. The General Fund makes it possible for us to provide for orphans who currently do not have a sponsor; and also provides special assistance to your child or family, and also to other children in our program who have special medical or educational needs; it is also used to help establish the orphan families in a small business enterprise to make them self-sufficient. Another use for these funds is to finance the tuition required for some of our exceptional orphans who further their education to receive a college degree. Through our General Fund, we are also able to help with the repair and maintenance of the “Hope Houses,” and to provide each family with furniture, house-wares and equipment. We also are able to provide assistance in the event that any emergency situations may arise.

If you would like to make an online donation to our General Fund please click the "Donate Online" button below, or visit the "Donate" page.

If you prefer not to donate online please see the "Donate" page for instructions concerning donations made via check or money order for One Time Contributions to our General Fund.
