In April 2018 Hunter Valley Grammar School will embark on its sixth Community Service Project, raising funds to pay for and build houses for ethnic minority groups in the countryside of South Vietnam.
In previous trips (2007-2016) we have funded and built eight houses for ethnic minorities including the Red Zhou, Tay, H’Mong and Black H’mong people in the hills of North Vietnam. Cumulatively, the HVGS community can be very proud of the $50 000 we have raised since 2007.
While in Vietnam we have not only built houses but have financially supported and worked in various orphanages and schools. In 2016, we donated a tonne of rice to the Vietnam Friendship Village, a place for disabled children who are descendants of Agent Orange victims.
> Platinum Sponsor $3000
> Gold Sponsor $1000
> Silver Sponsor $500
> Bronze Sponsor $100
If you would like to discuss the opportunities for sponsorship, please call Brett Blake, at Hunter Valley Grammar School on 4934 2444, or email
We also donated clothing from the HVGS clothing pool, computers, and other necessities. In 2016, we donated stationery supplies to the local ethnic school near our house-building site, as well as money for other educational purchases.
During the time students are engaged in the building program, they live in the village in which they are building, working alongside both the families they are building for and the local builders who are paid with monies raised from sponsorship and the students fundraising efforts.
We are seeking your assistance in sponsorship for the HVGS Vietnam Community Service Project. Your support in conjunction with the significant fundraising efforts from the students will be used to purchase building materials and employ local carpenters to assist with the build. A small proportion of the funds raised will also be used to buy a tour uniform for the group.
