Mission

Catalyst Foundation is a non profit, non political organization building communities in Vietnam to fight human trafficking. We also work to teach cultural awareness and enrich the lives of children adopted from Vietnam.

Notes from the nonprofit

We have started our second community development project in Ninh Thuan Province, Vietnam. Located right on the coast of the South China Sea, this province gets the least amount of rainfall and is the 4th poorest in the country.

We are working with a community from the Raglai Ethnic Minority. Families that are all desperately living below the poverty level in a rural hamlet named Suoi Da. They do not have the basics of water, education, food and safety and are at risk to human trafficking.
