Many people don't know, but Lanterns was born out of a vision to improve the lives of the children in Nha Trang & using the proceeds from our restaurant to put money back into the local community & help those less fortunate. 


Visiting and spending quality time with the children, as well as providing certain basic daily essentials is our way of giving back to our local community, which has been so supportive of us. We provide food supplies and basic goods to a number of Orphanages/Schools and Pagodas, with our staff volunteering their time to buy and distribute the goods around the Khanh Hoa province. We work closely with the different Orphanages/Schools & Pagodas, to ensure we are buying the most needed goods every week. The food is distributed to the many children but is also distributed to the poorer communities in and around the Khanh Hoa Province.

Our school scholarship program, started in 2011, provides tuition fees for about 200 children at the various Orphanages/Schools & Pagodas and we made a commitment to all involved, that our scholarship program will provide scholastic support for many years, regardless if Lanterns is around. We have stressed to all the children and teachers, that we are working with them for the long term benefit of the children and not just for short term gain.

These are just a few of the things we do within our local community of Nha Trang and within the Khanh Hoa Province. We strongly believe that giving the children an opportunity to shine, is what they truly deserve.
