In Vietnam there are more than 50 ethnic groups each with its own language, lifestyle, and cultural heritage. The number and variety of languages used by Vietnam's minorities reflect the country's ethnic complex. The minority question remained an issue because of its implications for integration. Enot necessarily because they have more disadvantaged household characteristics, but, more importantly, because the returns to the characteristics are much lower for ethnic minorities than for majorities. This situation is reflected in the current situation of children.
This is a visit to an orphanage that tries to cover many of the children needs that these minority families can not afford. These needs are non other than SMILES.
