In the evening of July 18, 2012, 30 Vietnamese students from institutions in Vietnam and overseas who were participating in the internship program SEO-IIV (Sponsors for Educational Opportunity-Interns in Vietnam) had a chance to learn more about LIN Center for Community Development and one of its NPO partners The Little Rose Warm Shelter (of Ho Chi Minh City Child Welfare Foundation).
In a friendly atmosphere at the Little Rose shelter, the interns, together with staff members from the two organizations, discussed many different issues related to NPO, philanthropy and community development in Ho Chi Minh City as well as in Vietnam. They also had lots of questions for the organizations to learn more about their missions and activities. At the end of the event, the interns had a chance to make friends with the girls at the shelter by joining them in a modern dance.
“On behalf of SEO-IIV 2012, I would like to sincerely thank LIN Center and the Little Rose shelter for their time to meet us. The interns have learned a lot about working experience and commitment in the non-profit field…”
