Artwork exhibition on adverse childhood experiences conducted by VACEP3 

At VinUniversity, students participating in the VACEP 2023 project shared their artistic creations at an exhibition showcasing adverse childhood experiences. Overcoming language barriers and the initial unfamiliarity of working with the community, they gradually gathered information, interviewed subjects, generated ideas, and designed their works displayed at the exhibition. 

These artworks depict the life of individuals, portraying the pain and the pivotal decisions and significant events that have shaped their lives.

Break the Cycle prepares for school enrollment  

As the school year approaches, Break the Cycle prepares for children of the project to return to school. Not only connecting with each child's family, grasping difficulties, encouraging, finding solutions, the project also assistes school supplies, aiming to alleviate the burden on parents and ensure uninterrupted schooling for the children. 

The Ho Chi Minh City team kicked off the new school year by distributing school supplies to 130 children. In addition, children can also choose toys, clothes and shoes that donors send.
