Giving is true having.

- Spurgeon

It’s a simple equation.

Without funding we cannot build libraries or offer the services we want to in Viet Nam and while some of our funds will come from grants, we rely heavily on individual and corporate donations.

Because the US dollar is worth so much in Viet Nam you can be assured that your donations will have maximum impact on the lives of people who can really use our help.

On average the exchange rate is $1 = 16,000 dong. But what does that mean specifically?

$1 = 3 paperback books
$2 = 1 hardcover book
$20 = A visit from a nurse to talk about health issues
$50 = The monthly salary of one head librarian
$100 = Two shelves of books
$200 = A computer system
$1,000 = One teaching garden, outdoor seating, and koi pond
$10,000 = One small library, or one wing of a large library
$30,000 = One large library

Our online donations are processed by PayPal, a secure online payment method. You will not be required to open an account in order to give us a donation.
