LIN Community Center Opens its Doors!

Dear Friends!

We have a lot of wonderful news to share with you!

With your trust and support, LIN Community Center was able to open its doors. The Center now has enough space to offer six different services and support over 100 grassroots not-for-profit and charity organizations (NPOs) that together help over 2000 disadvantaged people in HCMC. We invite you to take a virtual tour of the LIN Community Center to see first hand what you helped us build!

To celebrate the Center's opening, the LIN Team organized two events. The first event, the Center's Opening Ceremony on March 9th, brought together representatives of LIN's partner NPOs and members of LIN Board of Directors and Board of Advisors. The guests learned about the capacity and services of the new Center, and were able to network and discuss major challenges that local NPOs in Vietnam face. Visit our Blog to read more about the Opening Ceremony or our Facebook page to see the event photos.    

Another event marking the Center's opening was Housewarming for LIN Donors on April 11th. Over 30 LIN's most devoted supporters gathered together to tour the new Center, receive appreciation tokens from LIN Team, and network with other donors and LIN's Board Members and staff. All of us at LIN were happy to see some of you at the event. For those of you who could not visit in person due to distance or work or family plans we put together a short account to share some of the event's good spirit and joy!

All of LIN Board and staff members would like to thank you once again for your support, the Center would have stayed a dream but for your contribution! As always, we invite you to stay in touch via our E-Newsletter Nhip Cau, our Blog or Facebook page. The new chapter of LIN Community Center is just starting, and we hope that you will help us write it to make Ho Chi Minh City a better place for all of its residents!
