The mission of Phuc Tue Centre is to help disabled childrens become more independent in their everyday life by building their self-confidence. At the centre we aim to help educate and recover mental health, as well as provide development and vocational skill training to help integrate these individuals into the employment community. This not only allows these individuals to feel independent in their everyday life but this will also diminish the potential burden on the family and society Currently, the centre has 60 disabled childrens with ailments including Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, children who have been victims of Agent Orange, as well as other mental illnesses. The Centre has applied the specific education measures which ae suited for each individual and has used psychotherapy methods in attempts to rehabilitate the mentally. The Fisher village is a place that consists of more than 40 families live in temporary ragged boats on Red river (half of them live on the bank of the river called “Fisher Village” while the other half live in the island of the river named “Fisher Island”). All of them are extremely poor, have no job in their hometowns. They come to Hanoi to get a job for earning more money for their life, families and children. However, in fact that in city everything is expensive and it is not easy to have a job which gives them enough money to have normal life. So, they have to accept hard and bad jobs to have money enough to survive. Some of them collect rubbish on the street, dumping ground, be carrier in Long Bien market, etc. They do not have enough money to rent a flat or house on the land in city, so they have to live on boats on the Red River between rubbish. (So, they are actually not fishermen, we call Fisher village just because they are living on the river!). Their children, all of whom were badly malnourished and illiterate (but they can go to the schools since several years ago thanks to the great support from SJV and some international volunteers to get their birth certificate and ID!), have to sell collected fruits, vegetable, lottery results or catch shrimp overnight.
