Let Us Sing Our October Song

Our October began with the privilege of welcoming 23 Social Workers from @27 Family Service Center (Singapore) to Tea Talk for a visit. It again was a joy to share our stories of touching lives and inspire people to make an impact in Vietnam community.


October also marked a a new milestone for our community services. CoRE performed outstandingly in Inspiring CSOs 2016 Program as the youngest Civil Society Organization and emerged 12 out of 49. In addition, CoRE was awarded top 3 for the small organization category in Vietnam that has the best transparency and accountability practice. Bravo CoRE!!!



The great achievement of CoRE was followed by the feature of

Tea Talk Cafe as one of the “best place to eat and do good in Vietnam”

by Our Better World (Singapore).

Well done Tea Talk Cafe!!!

Our Founder, Michael Ong was proudly featured in Singapore

International Foundation Magazine. Tea Talk was highlighted

as “the popular meeting point for young people in Hanoi” that

offers comfort and hope to troubled Vietnamese youth who need

a listening ear.

Our October was also “beautified” by 2 passionate and motivated ladies from Singapore who conducted a Beauty Workshop for 25 Vietnamese ladies. They also brought along with them 60kg worth of skincare products, make-up tools and ladies apparels. These items will be donated to Tea Talk’s upcoming Garage Sale to raise funds for CoRE. One of the participants for the workshop, Quynh Trang, was full of praises “I really appreciate the time and effort they spent for us. I have learnt a lot about the beauty of woman especially the beauty inside every of us. It would be my pleasure to empower other girls the way they have been doing as well”.


October was an exciting month for Let’s Share, as we saw two Vietnamese friends share with us about their different perspectives on traveling in Vietnam and studying abroad and gave us advice on how to make the most of these experiences. Our Counseling Program Director Christine Peh also pitched in, while club facilitator Presley McFadden invited participants to consider how their weaknesses might be a gift just as much as their strengths in ‘The Power of Weakness’.
