Stealing books to school is a happiness for poor children in district 8, Ho Chi Minh City. The majority of the children here belong to poor working households in difficult circumstances, they come from the Western provinces to live and start a business. The children often follow their parents to hire and pick up fish vegetables at Binh Dien market. Others go to sell lottery tickets, pick up bottles, collect garbage and scrap. As social workers, when we learned of their circumstances, we visited each family to mobilize them to the center for love classes, Phat Huy classes, sewing lessons, embroidery lessons …
