"Giving Well University Tour - Invest in the Future" which will take place from 17 March to 17 April, aims to raise awareness of Vietnamese students about the local nonprofit community and giving well in Vietnam. The tour targets to help 400 students from LIN's four partner universities to access the knowledge about the local nonprofits, social impact, as well as provide tools and skills for the students to get involved and play an active role in creating positive changes in the community.
Philanthropy and volunteering has a long-standing history in Vietnam. While the young generations are passionate and eager to contribute their part in the community, given limited awareness about local nonprofit community and philanthropy, they find it challenging to know how or where to start their own giving journey, how best to invest in local nonprofit organizations to grow and become resilient in a long term, as well as contribute to sustainable development in Vietnam.
LIN's Giving Well University Tour raises awareness of the students about giving well, philanthropy and social impact in Vietnam. The training and materials of the program will provide the students with information, insights and tools to start their own giving journey in a more strategic manner while also enriching their personal and career development. The advanced workshop allows students to reflect deeper on their giving journey and relevant skills to start making an impact in the community.
The long term goal and expected impact are to inspire and nurture the philanthropic mindset of the students, so later when they graduate and enter the labour this philanthropic mindset will be with them in their future career and personal development when they become leaders of companies and organizations in the future. As a result, this helps to contribute to the development of the philanthropy ecosystem, humanitarian and solidarity spirit in Vietnam for many generations to come.
