Our goal is to provide impoverished students in rural Vietnam with the financial means necessary to complete their education.

Why There Is a Need

In Vietnam, families have to pay school tuition to send their children to school. Many Vietnamese families farm or fish for a living and do not have stable incomes. As a result, most can not afford the cost of school every year.

How VNSF Helps
