VNHELP was formally incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1991.
VNHELP was founded on the vision that people can begin to pull themselves out of poverty and build self-sufficiency through greater access to resources. To help us realize this vision, we partner with local organizations and individuals in Vietnam who have deep connections to the people and their needs, and we equip them with the tools necessary for success. Our strategy for engagement and development is based on these five principles:
Thirty years have gone by since VNHELP’s inception in 1991, it is now one of the largest Vietnamese American-founded nonprofit organizations providing humanitarian and development assistance to Vietnam. Its programs have expanded to reach thousands of people each year through health, education, and economic development.
VNHELP has granted nearly 9,000 scholarships to disadvantaged college students; built 60+ schools serving over 10,500 students annually in rural and remote villages; connected 45,000 villagers to clean water sources; and changed the lives of thousands more through cataract surgeries, community clinics, microfinance, vocational and child welfare projects.
Moving toward the future, VNHELP will continue to promote sustainable change that not only mitigate suffering, but also uplift people from poverty and restore integrity to their lives. With your support, we can do so much more. We humbly ask for your financial contribution to a brighter future of Vietnam. Any amount, no matter how large or small, is sincerely appreciated because every dollar matters in our mission to break the poverty cycle in Vietnam.
