Combining technology, education, and a heart for the Vietnamese people, The Western Union Foundation is honored to support OneVietnam in their efforts to create better education for girls in Vietnam.
The online hub dedicated to the Vietnamese culture, OneVietman, is partnering with three non-profits: VNHelp, Children of Vietnam, and Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam (HSCV). The overall goal is to give girls in Vietnam a voice and the opportunity to tell their captivating “istories”, through the technologies of an iPad.
Who is OneVietnam?
OneVietnam is an online center that allows people with a passion for Vietnamese culture to engage and connect with each other. It provides opportunity to get involved with initiatives and campaigns, all for the unity and benefit of Vietnam and the world.
What is The Goal?
The goal is to raise $100,000. We know that sounds like a lot of money, but every single dollar counts. Your donations contribute in an immense way, which is why the Western Union Foundation and OneVietnam are matching your generous efforts, dollar-for-dollar.
Why is this important?
Everyone has a story to tell, and these young girls’ stories allow the rest of the world to imagine what their lives are like, and why education will benefit them. It’s been said that “for the world you can be one person, but for one person you can be the world” and we believe that changing the lives of these girls will in result change their future, community, society, and world at large. The betterment of education reduces poverty levels, increases likelihood of overall health, and increases the chances that their children will also be educated.

Every dollar you donate gets matched by us (up to $50,000). You can support our efforts to better the education in Vietnam by donating on our website. Get involved and donate here!
