Challenge

While the growth story for Vietnam remains compelling, not all segments of the population are reaping the benefits and the gap between rich and poor is rising. Local nonprofits are working to address this challenge; however, they are understaffed and underfunded. Meanwhile, there are an individuals in the community, who are well suited to help but they don't know who needs their help and/or how to make a meaningful impact.

Solution

By getting area professionals involved and engaged as advisers, mentors and trainers, LIN can help to address staff weaknesses and improve the efficiency of NPO operations in Vietnam.

Long-Term Impact

By linking people together for the common good, LIN seeks to address the growing gap between rich and poor in an effort to build stronger communities.
