The ILA Community Network (ILACN) makes a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children in the communities in which ILA operates with Ho Chi Minh City as our home base.
We direct our efforts towards projects that help the children at these organisations in an immediate and on-going way. Teachers, staff, students, and their families donate their time and money to a broad range of on-going projects.
All operating costs of the ILACN are covered by ILA Vietnam so that 100% of every contribution received goes directly to the intended recipient.
We work closely with each organisation to find out what is needed most and then deliver the product or service to the organisations we support.
From October 2012 –September 2013 the ILACN raised a total of 852,974,000 VND. The money was donated to the organisations we support to pay for the following:

If you have any special talents that you want to share let us know!
We organize a variety of events throughout the year for teachers, staff, students and families to enjoy, and 100% of all the money raised supports a broad range of on-going projects at each of our organisations.
Some of our past fundraising events have included: football tournaments, art exhibits, bring and buy sales, lucky draws, pub quizzes, concerts and other themed parties.
With these funds, we have provided much needed assistance to these organisations, including: education and healthcare support, repairs and improvements to their buildings, transportation to reunite families during Tết, and a variety of equipment and other supplies.
You can volunteer to help us with our events, support them through attendance or let us know if you have a new and exciting ideas which you think would be good for the shelters and volunteers.
