This is how it begins

Renovation and construction is underway. Thanks to our friends around the world, Blue Dragon is preparing to open a new, much larger, centre for Hanoi's street kids.

Before the workers could do anything, a ceremony had to take place... Not really 'the norm' in western countries, but construction cannot take place in Vietnam without some kind of ritual first! 

And then, the work begins...

We're starting on the ground floor, adding some bathrooms (yes, with disability access) to the space that will soon be the drop-in centre. 

We believe the work will all be finished in 5-6 weeks... so the next thing for us to do is prepare the opening party!
