About this listing
Coins for Change (C4C) is a non-profit social enterprise that aids disenfranchised women and children throughout Vietnam. Our mission is to empower women with skills and resources to overcome social and economic challenges and to pursue opportunities.
Our programs serve urban and rural families through educational, mental health, parenting, and business support. With a focus on serving marginalized women such as low-income women, ethnic minorities, women in rural areas, domestic violence survivors, single mothers, and disabled women, we help remove the obstacles that prevent these disadvantaged groups from achieving success and gender equality within their communities and within Vietnam.
Through our educational and business campaigns, we offer free vocational training, job placement, free and low-cost English classes for women and children, online and offline support groups, mental health awareness, business support, and online lessons. Our campaigns focus on building life skills and providing training that increases independence and fair opportunities.
Officially established in December 2015, C4C now offers a wide range of services related to education and business within Vietnam through two programs; Teach For Change and The Empowerment Plan.
Teach for Change connects international English teaching volunteers with our partner schools and English centers. In alignment with the women-empowering mission of Coins for Change–TFC’s founder organization–we focus on supporting female-led schools and English centers across Vietnam.
Through this program, we are able to provide English language services to women and children across Vietnam, particularly those in the countryside, who would otherwise not have access to them. Teach for Change offers them free or low-cost access to English classes and other educational enhancement and literacy programs.
The Empowerment Plan aims to support disadvantaged women from multiple demographics in Vietnam, including low-income women, single mothers, disabled women, ethnic minority women, domestic violence victims, and others.
