Build Home for Vietnam NPOs

by LIN Center for Community Development


Vietnam not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) are understaffed, underfunded and relatively new, which limits their ability to help disadvantaged people. The project funds some of LIN's core services aimed at educating & empowering local NPOs, and LIN's community resource center to run these services from.

Since 2009, LIN has been supporting local NPOs in a variety of ways: by providing free trainings & educational resources, by helping them find volunteers & sponsors, and by informing the public about their work. Why have we been doing it? Because we believe that making an NPO more professional & sustainable creates a ripple effect - it enables the organization to provide better help to more people in need. However, until now, LIN did not have an adequate physical space to do all this work.


The new LIN Home for NPOs will be a multi-purpose center with a space for free trainings and meetings, one-on-one consultations for NPOs, library and research center, free space for startup NPOs, skilled volunteers center, and a venue for LIN's community networking events. Our goal is to turn the Home into a busy and bustling with activity community resource center for local NPOs to provide them with many kinds of technical, financial & other community resources they need.

Long-Term Impact

The hearth at LIN's new Home will light fires of over 100 local NPOs who, in turn, will share the warmth and love with over 2.000 people in HCMC who very much need it this holiday season: with children who have no home or family, abandoned elderly, people with disabilities, people who suffered from human trafficking, city dwellers battling poverty, and many others. The stronger you help LIN make their fires, the more people these organizations can invite to warm up!
