On Sunday, March 10, Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation co-founders Michael Brosowski and Chung Pham hosted a special presentation at best-selling novelist John Shors’ residence. The event was also a fundraiser where proceeds went to the foundation’s mission of helping street children escape the poverty cycle in Vietnam.

Guests arrived at the beautiful home located in Lafayette, Colo. to a wonderful, warm host and an array of hors d’oeuvres. A video presentation was then given by Pham and a young adult who benefited from the program that now works for the organization as an advocate. Works of art were displayed with Shors’ books for purchase.

The foundation is based in Hanoi, Vietnam where Brosowski first started as an English professor at Hanoi University back in 2002. While in Vietnam, he provided free classes to children from the streets with one of his university students, Pham. In 2003, Brosowski left the university to pursue helping street children of Vietnam full-time. By 2004, Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation was officially formed.
Blue Dragon’s main mission is to eliminate child trafficking and help victims with programs that give them a new chance in life. Programs include education, stable living conditions, and credible employment. For more information or to learn how to help, please visit: streetkidsinvietnam.com.
