This month, Not For Sale launches our #InnovateForGood campaign. We’ll be celebrating outside-the-box thinkers who are creating solutions for injustice through entrepreneurship, and stories of global impact from innovators in the Not For Sale ecosystem and beyond!
As a child, Hoang* was a victim of severe domestic abuse. Before he received help from Not For Sale Vietnam, he endured in silence and bottled the fear and pain tightly inside him. Recognizing the trauma he had suffered, Not For Sale Vietnam created opportunities to care for his psychological, physical, social, and educational needs.
Today, Hoang has discovered his passions, and rebuilt his self-esteem and trust in the world. Hoang found his dream in becoming a Dessert Chef, and he hopes to travel abroad to learn from French Dessert Chefs in the future. Not For Sale Vietnam will support his goals and help him realize a life where he is able to provide for himself – and find happiness.
*Name changed for Hoang’s protection.
