Mai Tam Center House of Hope


The Mai Tam House of Hope is a home and center for HIV/AIDS positive widows, mothers, and children. It provides shelter, medicine, medical care, education, and referrals for its residents and the many walk-ins it receives. The children living at Mai Tam are both infected and affected by HIV/AIDS – some are HIV positive or have AIDS, and some are the children or orphans of parents with HIV/AIDS. When Mai Tam was established in 2005, the founders hoped to assist 100 affected women and children, but today, Mai Tam, the first and only facility of its kind in Ho Chi Minh City, supports more than 500 women and children in need.

Storytelling School

SWMF trains storytellers through Storytelling School, a free online self-guided course on how to become a storyteller for social good. We also conduct workshops in classrooms to explore issues through the making of student documentary films.

We are funded by donors who see the value of providing free communication tools to non-profits who otherwise could not afford to tell their story or make others aware of the critical issues they address. We couldn’t do it without you.
