LIN Community Center Update 2013

LIN's Narrow the Gap Photo Contest on Facebook
Dear Friends and Supporters of LIN!

We have a lot of exciting news to share with you! 
Since our last update, LIN received two grants - one from a team of philanthropists in HCMC called the Charity Cabaret Committee and the second from the US Consulate General - which will help to:
  • Equip the LIN Community Center with computers, routers, telecommunications and Internet connection
  • Provide in-depth, one-on-one consultations to our partner not-for-profit organizations (NPOs)
  • Launch a leadership roundtable and a series of much needed workshops for local NPO managers
  • Organize LIN's traditional Narrow the Gap community event on September 15
We also rolled out refreshed versions of two of LIN's traditional programs. 
  • First is Community Partnership Initiative, a program that matches local NPOs with marketing and PR experts to help the NPOs create professional communication materials such as websites, videos, and brochures. With these materials in hand, the NPOs can better tell their stories to the community and attract more donors and volunteers to support their cause.  You can read more about CPI here:
  • Second is the Narrow the Gap Fund, LIN's traditional Community Fund that this year focuses on helping NPOs working with disadvantaged children in HCMC. The idea of the community fund is to bring together concerned individuals and businesses in the community to solve the city's most urgent social problems. Everyone is invited to contribute to the Fund and later to help us decide how the Fund will be spent by voting for their favorite projects online or at NTG Community Event on September 15.

Thank you once again for your support and belief in our vision to build a strong community together!
