Our Mission and Goals
Rock-Paper-Scissors Children's Fund is a U.S.-based non-profit dedicated to helping Vietnamese children and families in need. Our goal is to provide learning opportunities for young students through our art and music programs, as well as providing support for them and their families.
Although Vietnam has been gaining in wealth over the past decade, and made gains in social programs, most of these improvements have occurred in the larger cities, and still remain outside the realm of the very poor. Still, approximately 75% of the population live in rural areas, and continue to live in impoverish conditions. Although many children go to school, schools are strict and often provide a very rigid form of learning. Students rarely have the opportunity to express themselves freely outside of school or home.
