A New Day Social Club was founded in 2011, after founder Rita Nguyen participated in an inspiring workshop in her city. Driven by her desire to help more vulnerable members of the community, Rita started Play for Peace in Vietnam with friends. A New Day holds regular practice peace sessions with children from different backgrounds and conducts special projects and activities that focus on the inclusion of marginalized community groups. The club regularly participates in training workshops and is an active part in Vietnam´s civil society that is working toward positive change.
It is thanks to the passion and dedication of our community members that Play for Peace continues to spread to new areas around the world. This is especially true of our regional coordinator, Rita Nguyen, who dedicated her summer vacation to creating laughter, compassion, and peace in new communities in Vietnam.
This past April, Play for Peace clubs around the world celebrated Earth Week by taking part in the 2019 Play for Peace Global Games. Working with more than 700 children over the course of the week, our clubs explored what it means to be a leader when you feel connected to the earth.
Play for Peace’s club in Vietnam, A New Day Social Work Group (AND), organized a variety of fantastic activities in 2018, using the power of play to bring together many different people across divides. See what happened in our recap!
