Ms. NGO THUY

Country Director

25 years ago I made the best decision joining the community of international Non-Profit Organizations in Viet Nam.

My life has never been the same since then, as I can join hands with like-minded people and organizations to facilitate positive changes to the lives of thousands of children, youth and people living in unthinkable adversity in Viet Nam.

I feel so blessed to be part of the WWO global team since 2011 to provide need-based, comprehensive support for more than 12000 children and youth in Viet Nam, and empower their service providers and caregivers through training and hands-on coaching.

 

Dr. LE NGOC OANH

Medical Advisor

It’s quite natural for a pediatrician to work with children. I have experienced different environments and positions during my time in the work. Over time I have come to realize that treatment is not just medication but I needed to have sympathetic heart for my little patients and their families. This motivates me a lot to try my best. Being a staff member at WWO has given me the chance to meet with people who have the same purpose. With this unity in our hearts, we try our best to help vulnerable children and youths. It’s always a privilege to see them transformed not only into positive, healthy and optimistic people, but also useful members their community and society.

 

Ms. NGUYEN MINH YEN

Finance Director

A part of WWO Vietnam for more than 10 years, I have had a chance to join in many projects so that my technique and experience are also developed from the practical lessons, from contact with leaders and colleagues. I’m glad to have contributed my efforts to help the community.

Although not trained as a professional social worker, I think that no matter what position I am in, if I try my best to foster the spirit of development, and develop the moral qualities of social worker, I can contribute effectively to fulfill WWO Vietnam’s mission.

Working with children is one of my chief desires and looking after their improvement gives me incredible happiness.
