Awards and Recognition

We have had the privilege and honor of receiving positive feedback on our projects from the very beginning.

Below we share some highlights which have motivated us to work even harder.


At the occasion of Sao Bien’s fifth anniversary, the organisation received heartwarming congratulations from Mr. Nguyen Trung Kien, Vietnamese Ambassador in Vienna.



In 2020, regional Laotian television channel Lunuag Prabang TV reported about the opening of Sao Bien’s school in Dok Lau, Laos.

In 2019, once again one of our projects was funded by the United Nations Women’s Guild (UNWG). This time, the UNWG supported our project in Tuyen Quang province.

Given the high numbers of applications (around 1000) and the low numbers of selected projects (around 30), these donations represent highlights in Sao Bien’s short history.



In 2018, a regional channel of Vietnam Television (VTV) reported about the school opening in Thanh Hoa.

In 2018 one of our projects in Ha Giang province has been funded by the United Nations Women’s Guild (UNWG).

We highly appreciate that the Austrian Ambassador, Mr. Thomas Schuller-Götzburg, joined the opening ceremony.
