Mary’s House is the creation of Jen Flynn, an American volunteer who lived in Vietnam from 2008-2010. She wanted to provide a safe place for disadvantaged kids to be well taken care of and receive an education. Jen inspired over a dozen former volunteers from around the world and other friends and family members to fund raise, making Mary's house a reality in January 2012. Jen named the house after her grandmother, Mary Ciccaglione, who inspired her to travel and live a full life.
"To help children achieve their maximum potential through
medical care, education, nutrition, and love.
Mary’s House opened in January of 2012. Jen Flynn, a long time supporter and partner of Giving it Back to Kids, had a dream about opening a home for kids in Da Nang and naming it for her grandmother, Mary. Mary was a loving and strong influence in Jen’s life encouraging her to travel, to learn, and to experience life to the fullest!
