 The Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will benefit nearly 19,000 disadvantaged Vietnamese children through two projects worth more than US$496,000.

The DariuHSBC supports disadvantaged children Foundation and Maison Chance—two charitable organisations included in the HSBC’s Future First Funding Cycle—will run the projects.

Future First will offer street children and orphans educational opportunities like life skills courses and provide vocational training for less fortunate adolescents in Vietnam.

HSBC Sustainable Development Committee President Scott Solberg said he hopes that close coordination with Vietnamese non-governmental organisations will ensure the effective use of his corporation’s funding, meeting community demands and benefiting children over the long term.

Since launching in 2007, Future First has funded 28 projects worth US$1.19 million, helping more than 72,100 Vietnamese teenagers.
