An overdue project update from LIN!

Dear LIN Friends,

Thanks to your support in 2010, the LIN Center for Community Development was able to grow our NPO capacity building program, providing more services to an increasing number of NPO staff and organizations who are working to strengthen the community in which we work.

Below is a brief overview of our support service sto NPOs in 2010:

  • 27 grants (valued at over VND 362 million/ USD $18,596)
  • Facilitated 4 grants by other donors (valued at VND 394 million/ USD $20,205)
  • Established new partnerships with 27 NPOs (56 NPO Partners by end Dec 2010, 58 partners by end January 2011)
  • Organized 11 Workshops for 142 NPOs and 318 participants
  • Disseminated 12 newsletters – VN & EN (increased subscriptions from 660 to 1300)
  • Co-hosted networking and information sharing events for the NPO community

A detailed record of our 2010 programs and activities is detailed in LIN's 2010 Annual Report, which is attached to this message (and also available for anyone to download from our website).

As the resident English language PR person for the LIN Center, I must apologize for the delay in sending you more recent project updates. I fell ill late in the Summer and Fall months and was remiss in some of my duties.  For those of you that provided your email addresses, you've hopefully all still managed to receive copies of our monthly newsletter, reporting on activities and outcomes of the LIN Center. (If not, they are all still available for download from our website - see link below.)

Thanks again for your generous contribution to the LIN Center's NPO Capacity Building programs last year!  We could not have organized all of the above programs and services without that support.

Dana, on behalf of the LIN Team
