Our vision, mission, values


  • We strive for a society of fairness and equality in which poor people understand the issues that hinder local development and are encouraged to take part and work together to overcome challenges and improve the quality of life of their communities.


  • We are a social organization. We cooperate with local and international organizations to support the social and economic developments in the local poor communities.
  • We encourage the poor communities to improve their capacity in solving their own problems.
  • We strive to raise the living, economic and education standards for the communities, with priorities given to women and children.
  • We aim to build cohesiveness, unity and mutual support among the communities and achieve sustainable development.



We support the activities for community development, based on the precept of Lao- Tu – a Chinese philosopher


Thien Chi (i.e. “Good Will”) is a Vietnamese non-profit non-government organization for training and social development. It was established in 2004 and was registered by VUSTA (Vietnam Union of Scientific and Training Association) in 2005. Today, Thiện Chí operates in 3 districts; Đức Linh, Tánh Linh and Hàm Thuận Nam, in the Binh Thuan province in southern Viet Nam.

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 2014 Government survey statistics) who still live in extreme poverty. The aim of Thien Chi is to focus on this poorest section of the population.

It is imperative that families receiving support are empowered to contribute to their own well-being and with this philosophy in mind, Thien Chi aims to support, rather than merely provide.

Thien chi has a dedicated, experienced and enthusiastic staff of over 57 employees delivering innovative support services in the areas of micro loan, education, health, agriculture, employment creation to families who are living in extreme poverty. Working closely with community representatives and listening to the needs of local people, Thien Chi assesses local concerns and needs first hand.  67 village workers are also employed on a part time basis and are a unique concept to Thien Chi – they live and work in the villages and closely monitor the progress of all programs. Their acceptance by the local communes and in depth knowledge of family needs is used as a basis in implement change and support.
