Narrow The Gap - Vietnam is Awesome!

by LIN Center for Community Development Vetted since 2010 Site Visit Verified

Summary

Every year, local non-profit organizations (NPOs) in Vietnam continue to fight an uphill battle to build a better future for their communities and bring equal opportunity to disadvantaged groups, but who is fighting to make sure the NPOs have the knowledge and resources they need to stay afloat? Since 2009, LIN's Narrow the Gap Community Fund has brought together resources to support projects that address the most pressing issues. Will you join us in creating a brighter future for Vietnam?

Challenge

Not everyone is benefiting from Vietnam's rapid economic development and many are still living in poverty without the opportunity of a better future. Charity is important, but solving problems and preventing escalation of existing issues requires collaboration and strategic philanthropy. By coming together and leveraging local resources we are better able to tackle the root causes of social problems and improve the communities in which we live and work.

Solution

Since 2009, LIN's Narrow the Gap Fund has united people to confront root causes of problems in our community. Together we combine local resources to support local NPOs that are tackling the most pressing social problems in & around Ho Chi Minh City. By engaging people with a shared vision, pooling available resources, and investing together in projects addressing local needs, Narrow The Gap Community Fund makes it easier & more rewarding for people to become more strategic with their giving.

Long-Term Impact

Since 2009, LIN's Narrow The Gap Community Fund has provided grants to 110 community projects, impacting on and transforming the lives of over 70,000 people. The beneficiaries are marginalized and disadvantaged groups who lack equal access to the opportunities that many of us take for granted. Working with local organizations and NPOs, LIN's Narrow The Gap Community Fund helps build capacity leading to long-term, sustainable impact in our community. Together we can build a better tomorrow.
