HÀ NỘI — At 15 years old, Đỗ Duy Vị left his hometown to make a living on the streets of Hà Nội. Two decades later, he is now one of the Chief Executives of the foundation that rescued him.
Vị might be one of many street kids that return to work at Blue Dragon, and one of the few that have spent more than ten years with the organisation, but his story has special significance as he has witnessed the growth of Blue Dragon even before it was established.

Born to a family of farmers in Nam Định Province, Vị and his three other siblings stayed with their mother while their father often travelled to other provinces for work.
