Thien Chi (i.e. "Good Will"), Centre for Community Support and Development, is a Vietnamese non-profit non-government organisation for training and social development. It was established in 2004 and was registered by VUSTA (Vietnam Union of Scientific and Training Association) in 2005 and now has its own charter. Today, Thien Chi operates in 3 districts; Duc Linh, Tanh Linh and Ham Thuan Nam, in the Binh Thuan province in southern Viet Nam. While Vietnam has made great progress to reduce poverty there is still about 9% of the population in these districts of Binh Thuan province who live in extreme poverty (less than US$0.58c per person, per day).
