Our Story

The Vietnam Foundation (VNF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in 2008, licensed to operate in Vietnam under registration number 239/CNV-HD of the Department of Foreign Affairs Provincial, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam, and regulated by The Committee for Foreign Non-governmental Organization Affairs.

Our mission is to improve the quality of Vietnamese people’s lives through education. Therefore, our programs focus on providing equal learning opportunities to all students in every region of the country.

Over the past 15 years, VNF’s Sunflower and Anh Sen scholarships have awarded hundreds of visually impaired students. Additionally, our Open Educational Resources (VOER) Program has over 22,000 documents and 525 anthologies contributed by 13.484 authors, all of which are freely accessible and sourced from reputable learning resources. Most recently, VNF introduced the Khan Academy Vietnam (KAV) Program. With KAV, we aim to accompany millions of Vietnamese students in actively and effectively learning on the Khan Academy platform, through the KAV Open School and KAV Open Class model. 

The entirety of VNF’s community support program is for free and non-profit. We anticipate the collaboration of individuals, agencies, and organizations to share the mission of education and contribute sustainable values ​​to the lives of Vietnamese people.
