VIET secured a 30 year lease with the Archdiocese of New Orleans & Mary Queen of Vietnam in 2012 to help rebuild a blight property and transform the area into a viable community center for over 86,000 residents in Eastern New Orleans.

Your financial support will help  with the maintenance and improvement of the following areas: 

  • Replace 2 -  large A/C units for the community center

  • Add 8 - 10 light fixtures to the property

  • Replace entrance and exit gates

  • Improvement on fencing around the 8 acres of land

  • Beautification of the property




Our vision is to create an outdoor learning environment for school aged children to have access to learning about natural resources, plants and environment.  Funds will be use to clean up the area and transform it into an outdoor Science Classroom.  If you would like to make this a reality for children, please contact Ms. Cyndi Nguyen.
