2/ Vietnam Charity tour or For-a-Better-Vietnam tour.

The economy and living standards in Vietnam have been improved very well in the past 10 years. Vietnam does not belong to the group of poor countries any more. However, there are still more than 10,000,000 (more than 11% of the population) Vietnamese people who live in poverty and do not earn more than USD 25/person/month (till 2014).


We sympathize with those unfortunate people and want to make a difference to their lives.

Therefore, we have opened a charity fund named “The golden hearts fund”.

Smile Tours Service donates an amount of VND 50,000,000 (fifty million dongs) to start the fund with. We will invite our relatives, friends, organizations and anyone who care about those unfortunate people to contribute to the fund.

We would like to invite you to contribute to the fund if you think this is a good cause.


Besides creating the fund, we will also organize charity trips named For-a-Better-Vietnam tour.

In this tour, we combine some sightseeing with charity works. We will provide the tourists with a list of projects in different locations. The tourists can donate any amounts of money and choose what projects they want to help. They will spend 1 or 2 days to really hands-on working at that project. Then they move on with sightseeing and do more projects at other places.

The projects can be building a house, a school, a school library, a school playing ground, a bridge, a village road, a water tank; planting trees at schools or providing places with dustbins; donating food, clothes, school aids to poor villages, giving farmers with working tools, domestic animals like cows, pigs, buffalos, chickens, ducks to raise to make a living; etc.



- Building a simple house: USD 1,000 – USD 1,200 per house.

- A water tank and purifying system: USD 700 – 800 per project

- Other projects for building anything at a school, a bridge, a village road etc.: USD 500 up per project

- Supporting poor villagers and farmers with working tools: USD 200 up per household.

- Charity trips to give donations of food, clothes, medicines, ect.: USD 1,000 up per trip

We highly welcome anyone to be a member of our fund. Please just send us an email to join our group.

Regarding the Golden Heart Fund, we have received gracious donations from individuals and organizations. Till today (13 Oct 2015), the Golden Hearts Fund has received a total amount of VND 139,000,000 (one hundred and thirty nine million, dongs).

For each confirmed tour, Smile Tours Service will donate 20% from the profit and is in charge of planning, implementing, checking and approving, and reporting the result of each project to the tourists and donators.


We really hope that you will find our company a reliable organizer of those special tours in Vietnam.

Thanks and best regards,

Ms. Thi Hoang
