Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Service Organizations, Human Services

Mission: VietDreams is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by musicians, artists, journalists and music enthusiasts who all share a common goal – to provide disadvantaged children in Vietnam and United States with better educational opportunities and a more healthy, sustainable way of living. It is our duty to provide these children with vital medical supplies and educational assistance so that they may live better lives and one day fulfill their dreams. Some of our projects include donating bicycles and helmets, granting scholarships, medical supplies, workshops and most recently, providing access to clean water, which will reduce water-borne illness among children. Our organization also collaborates with local networks and other non-profit organizations such as Hope for Tomorrow, ICAN, Friends of Vinh Son, and Because Vietnam in order to successfully create an environment where every child is safe, self-sufficient, and able to pursue their education. But what sets our organization apart is our unwavering commitment and passion. We are devoted to giving these children a healthier lifestyle and a promising educational future. Our efforts are focused on children living in the poorer, rural areas of Vietnam. We do not discriminate among ethnic backgrounds, religions, minorities or medical circumstances. Every child deserves our assistance. We use our musical talents to raise the necessary funds to support our projects. The majority of our funding coming from benefit concerts, auctions, sponsors, and selling CDs and various artworks. We hope that our efforts and commitment will serve as a powerful reminder that there are many children in Vietnam who still need our help. Our goal is to give these children an opportunity of a lifetime and to make their dreams a reality.

Results: More than 50,000 children at 180 locations throughout Vietnam benefit our clean drinking water.

Programs: Clean drinking water for children at remote areas through out Vietnam

I have been with Viet Dreams since the beginning as Executive Director.
We couldn't have accomplished all these wonderful projects without your continuing supports (donors, supporters, and volunteers)

I've volunteered with Vietdreams for the past couple of years. I am so happy and grateful for this organization and everything that they have to offer. It's really hard to find an organization where 100% of the donations made to the organization goes to building these filtration systems for the school and the kids. How many organizations do you know that does that... not many. To many years of success.

I had a chance to volunteer at Vietdreams the first time in 2015 and get hooked until now. A very-well organised foundation with the philosophy of disclose everything. Every donor can rest assured that their money will go to where disadvantaged people need the most. Founders had a clear vision to focus mainly on medical and water issues, which are daily issues yet critical for people in Vietnam.

I worked in a club in highschool under this organization for four years. It has been a great experience and I've learned how to actively help an underprivileged part of the world by doing even some of the simplest tasks and only taking a couple hours out of my day. Getting involved in this club is a great way to help a small part of the world.

I had a chance being involved with Viet Dreams in a program that provided the free Eye Surgeries for the poor people having cataract problem in Vietnam. My experience was extremely positive and my best moment was when I saw the happy faces of the patients as well as the volunteers.
Viet Dreams is also very well known on the program providing access to clean water to many poor rural areas in Vietnam.
I'm very impressive with Viet Dreams's staffs and volunteers, the superior examples of kindness, and compassion.
I'd like to express my great appreciation to Viet Dreams for many meaningful activities to my country Vietnam.

I have traveled to Vietnam many times and have personally seen the good that Viet Dreams is doing there. Viet Dreams partnered with Friends of Vinh Son and installed clean water systems at 6 orphanages in and near Kontum. When maintenance issues came up they were quickly resolved by Viet Dreams and M K Systems. Hats off to a wonderful charity that does so much for those who have so very little.

My only contribution so far has been buying one of the Us&Kids t shirts, but it was so amazing to see Catherine and Dorothy work so hard to make this happen. They did a great job of organizing and designing and selling the shirts. I was so happy and proud of them when I saw the pictures of the children in Vietnam with their school supplies that were purchased by the money from the shirts.

It was a great pleasure for me to be a part of the dream team. I have been volunteering my time and skills since the day Viet Dreams Foundation was first formed back in year 2010. I had opportunity to work as Fundraising Event Director for 7 years in a row. We had built a strong base of supporters and volunteers for the event. We were able to bring hundreds of clean water systems to disadvantaged kids in rural of Viet Nam. We also helped to support the eye cataract operations for low-income elders. In the US, we maintain the culture of sponsoring and serving holiday dinners during Thanksgiving and Christmas for homeless people. Joining Viet Dreams and working as a tireless member of the board is one of my priceless life experience.

We have been working with Vietdreams for over 5 years. In those 5 years Vietdreams has installed and maintained clean water systems to serve over 850 children and over 200 caregivers at Vinh Son and Sao Mai orphanages. The orphanages are located in the remote Central Highlands of Vietnam and despite the distance and the logistics the service has been excellent. In addition to the technical service they are most clear and detailed in their communications. We are most grateful to have a partner like Vietdreams
