Thien Chi (ie “ Good Will ”) is a Vietnamese non-profit non-governmental organization for training and social development. It was established in 2004 and was registered by VUSTA (Vietnam Union of Scientific and Technology Association) in 2005. Today, Thien Chi operates in 3 districts; Duc Linh , Tanh Linh and Ham Thuan Nam , in the Binh Thuan province in southern Vietnam .

While Vietnam has made great progress to reduce poverty there is still about 5% of the population in our 3 districts of Binh Thuan province (according to 2016 Government survey statistics) who live in extreme poverty. Thanks to Thien Chi projetcs, extreme poverty has been reduced by 75%. We have focused on basic needs such as microcredit, education (provide scholarships and many activities in schools), women rights, health and employment creation to improve the lives of poor people in these locations.
