This foundation was established in 2007 as a US-registered not-for-profit, tax-deductible organization, and licensed as an international NGO in Vietnam. The Foundation’s strength is its ability to implement development and humanitarian projects in Vietnam in a completely transparent manner. Their main programme focusses on funding life-saving heart operations for the most financially disadvantaged children in the country.
The CEO of the related corporate body supported the founding of VCF rather than establishing a corporate foundation to advance and encourage philanthropy in Vietnam and model best practices for NGO’s. The Foundation is a separate not-for-profit organisation that draws on the corporate group’s expertise while remaining free and independent to direct and implement its own development projects that address children’s social, economic, and environmental issues.
Their vision is a Vietnam where all children, regardless of health complications or a lack of access to education, can take advantage of the numerous opportunities available so that they may contribute to society and accomplish their dreams. They are committed to helping those who cannot help themselves, so that they may someday stand on their own feet and take advantage of all the opportunities provided by Vietnam’s bright future.
