HCM CITY — Trần Thị Diễm Sương was about to enter her third year of university when her mother told her she could no longer afford to pay her tuition and living expenses in HCM City.

With her future in doubt, Sương decided to apply for admission to Cỏ May Dormitory, founded by the late Phạm Văn Bên, a humanitarian and businessman whose mission was to help the disadvantaged attend university.
