2014 issue | Equal Access to Education

As important as we all know that education is, it has never been equally accessible to all people.

In Vietnam, nonprofit organizations are working to bridge this gap. Some of these programs can be expanded while others can be enhanced. All of these initiatives would benefit from broader community involvement and support.

LIN’s Narrow the Gap Community Fund gathers people with a shared vision to pool their resources and invest in viable solutions to real challenges in Ho Chi Minh City.

From now until August, Narrow the Gap is running a campaign to improve access to education in our community. Learn how you can participate.
