The East Meets West Foundation's 'Life is Beautiful' initiative is an international humanitarian media campaign that aims to raise funds for impoverished people living with disabilities in Vietnam.
In Vietnam more than 5.3 million people live with disability, caused by birth defects, illness or injuries. At least 3 million of these are suspected to be related to Agent Orange exposure.
As part of this campaign the East Meets West Foundation, using a panel of experts, selected the top 10 Best Program Models in December 2009. Much to the delight of Hold the Future the Centre was selected as one of the top models.
Hold the Future's efforts in providing vocational training, job placement and mainstreaming of disabled youth into the community have been recognised as being the best in Vietnam in this category of care for disabled youth.
