The VinaCapital Foundation (VCF) is proud to announce the partnership with Vietnam Is Awesome with the goal of raising awareness in the global community of the needs of disadvantaged children and women in Vietnam and to create a “call for action”.
Vietnam Is Awesome is the FIRST local community and travel booking platform partnering with VCF to engage international and local travellers in assisting Vietnamese children.
“With the recent launch of our tour booking platform, we hope to support the needs of children who are less fortunate and give back to underserved communities”, says DK Long, Founder & CEO at Vietnam Is Awesome. “Our partnership with VinaCapital Foundation will enable us to do this by providing a safe, secure, and effective way to deliver donations received from travelers when they book through our platform.”
Donations will fund VCF’s Grassroots Medical Program which focuses on improving the health and wellbeing of children by providing medical assistance in rural communities.
“We are delighted to have Vietnam Is Awesome join us in creating positive changes in Vietnam,” says Rad Kivette, CEO of VinaCapital Foundation. “It’s an honor to have onboard a company with deep roots in the community, that shows compassion, and truly believes in the virtue and progress that we can make together.”
To book through Vietnam Is Awesome and make a donation to VCF, travellers can simply visit here, select a tour and continue to the payment screen to select the amount they wish to contribute at the check-out step.
With the funds raised from the Vietnam Is Awesome website, kind-hearted travellers will be joining hands with VinaCapital Foundation to provide support for poor pediatric patients in unusual circumstances through medical assistance and psycho-social activities. 100% of the donations are dedicated to supporting the VCF program’s beneficiaries. All results and impacts will be updated on the VCF and Vietnam Is Awesome’s social media channels.
