Collective Philanthropy Project

Every year, Vietnamese Student Associations around the country collaborate and work towards a charitable cause. The Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations (UNAVSA), an organization which encompasses all of the VSA's in the North American region, runs a year-long campaign that benefits a non-profit organization, and this year's beneficiary is Catalyst Foundation, an organization that provides and supports communities in the poorest villages of Vietnam to prevent and fight against human trafficking. Catalyst Foundation empowers communities by providing education, counseling, training and employment to both children and adults. we hope to use the money to provide financial support for these underprivileged children who, without our help, may fall victim to traffickers. For the 2015-2016 School Year, UNAVSA raised $115,000 for Kids Without Borders!
