ICCSL's Project to Assist the Development of Enabling Legislation for the NPO Sector in Viet Nam
Discussion on financial and tax incentives for charity and donations are important for the growth of the non-for-profit sector in many countries.
VNAH launched its first prosthetics and rehabilitation outreach mission to provide direct assistance to the disabled in Ha Tay Province in the northern part of Vietnam. With funding support from the Nippon Foundation, VNAH coordinated with the Ba Vi Prosthetics and Technical Center to organize a series of outreach missions to selected northern highlands provinces. In addition, HealthEd and the Asia Education and Friendship Association of Japan (a sister organization of the Nippon Foundation) started a school construction project. The Nippon Foundation is the main sponsor of this special project, which plans to build many elementary schools in remote rural and central highlands areas.
