Vietnam is a fast growing economy, has middle income status, this brings many opportunities for the country, communities and business. There are 2 sides of this story....there are growing inequalities. The richest man earns more in a day than the poorest Vietnamese earns in 10 years. Over 9% of the population, equivalent to approximately 8.2 million are classed as poor, earning up to US$ 40/ month, not having access to the necessities of life many of us take for granted.
By making a donation you become a champion supporting LIN's efforts to amplify its impacts toward sustainable development, poverty alleviation, and citizen participation in Vietnam. Since LIN Center for Community Development began in 2009, around 500,000 people in Ho Chi Minh City and Southern Vietnam have directly and indirectly benefited from LIN's services and support by helping our grassroots nonprofit partners provide improved access to equal opportunities to local people.
LIN provides support services of information, expertise, networking, and funding to nearly 300 local nonprofit organizations, connecting thousands of skilled professionals to pro bono service opportunities, and assisting hundreds of individual and institutional philanthropists with information and strategic giving consultation. We inspire locally based individuals and businesses to join LIN's effort making inclusive and collective impact, and improve the lives of thousands more people in Vietnam
