On behalf of the girls who had received the scholarship from VCF, I would like to thank VCF for supporting, changing our lives. We can not be us like today without your help. More than an organization, VCF is our home.

3-month internship at VCF was a valuable experience as I got to meet incredible people and learn many new things. Many thanks to all VCF staff, who have built a cozy family-like working environment, with respect, common goals and communication, as well as supported me like a family member during my time here.

I became connected to the VinaCapital Foundation (VCF) via my public health graduate program. While my internship was only three weeks, I learned so much from VCF's team of dedicated, compassionate staff and volunteers. I hope to continue my relationship with VCF after I return to the U.S.! Thank you!

In my 3 months as an intern at VCF , I had a chance to be one of the first representative of Heartbeat Vietnam in Hanoi. My job was to support Gamuda team in Run For The Heart 2016 event. I've met, worked and became good friends with the nicest people that I can ever imagine. It was the most wonderful time in my life. Thank you VCF, I'm grateful from the bottom of my heart.
