The Global Village Foundation

Posted on Marzec 16, 2008


The Global Village Foundation (GVF) is a non-profit charitable organization which provides education and health care for children and rural villagers in Vietnam and some other countries of Asia[1]. Established in 1999 by author and humanitarian Le Ly Hayslip[2], it is based in the United States.

In 1986, coming back to Vietnam after a 16-year absence, Hayslip was deeply impressed by the poor living conditions and devastation there. Deciding to make a difference, she initially set up the East Meets West Foundation and later, Global Village Foundation for helping to rebuild and reconstruct her motherland and contributing to the peaceful dialogue between the U.S. and Vietnam.
