This is Loc Tho Pagoda Orphanage and school about 20 minutes drive outside of Nha Trang city. The orphanage is run by nuns and they rely entirely upon donations, much of which comes from people in their immediate community. Besides the orphans who live here, there are over 100 children from poor families studying at this primary school, some of whom also live at the pagoda. The nuns at Loc Tho provide the children with school books, school supplies, school uniforms, daily meals, as well as monthly expenses, such as the salaries for the primary teachers. The kids are happy and well behaved. You can tell they are loved and well cared for by the nuns. Since 1991 there were 17 orphans who lived & grew up here and gone to the outside world. Some are married and are successful. It was such a joyful time spent playing & laughing with the children. We gave the nuns money to help for food and school supplies for the kids. We will definitely return to visit them again.
