Project Selection Process
HOW DO WE IDENTIFY THE PROJECTS
After 30 years of providing service, the p2p foundation has become well known in Vietnam. Due to years of working closely with local people, universities professors, reporters and we also have established contacts with leaders of different religion such as Catholic priests, Buddhist monks and others. They provided data information and proposed projects to us based on the needs of the people living in their respective areas in according our specific criteria. Upon receipt of these proposed projects, the foundation representatives in Vietnam would then verify, evaluate, then forward to our office in the USA for final approval.HOW DO THE PROCESS TO FINANCE THESE PROJECTS?
After the projects are verified and final approved by our senior management, they are sent to this interest group for selection. Once a project is selected, the philanthropist will finance it and send the funds directly to the foundation office in Vietnam.
Since 2008 until the present time we are mainly act as Bridge between the needy families and the project grantor and manage the project to completion then report the result back to the project grantor.HOW MUCH AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR EACH PROJECT
Minimum 5K to the maximum 25K per each project. The process time is depending on the project size and location but normally 15 days to 45 days. In additional to the philanthropists we be able to mobilize a pool of volunteers associates such as local students, universities teachers and professors, business executives that assist us our local foundation wherever there’s a need. Religious leaders in Vietnam and abroad have also donated their time, effort and money to participate in our charity programs. So far all of our representatives and staff in Vietnam are volunteers. Additionally, there are many people who were the foundation recipients years ago now are devoted volunteers giving their time and financial contribution.
