Please join WEAV as we work to provide underprivileged Vietnamese girls a path out of poverty through education and workforce training.
In economically challenged areas of Vietnam, fewer girls have the chance to pursue primary, secondary, and higher education. WEAV is working to change that by helping girls to achieve the highest possible levels of education and by preparing them for the 21st century workforce.
Who We Are
WEAV, or Women's Empowerment and Voice , is an organization that provides education, mentoring services, and leadership development programs to underprivileged girls from the poorest provinces of Vietnam.
What We Do
Working closely with teachers and administrators, WEAV provides scholarships to girls in grades 1 -12 who need financial support to stay in school. Our college scholarship program currently supports more than 100 young women attending college at Can Tho University, Dong Tap University, Tra Vinh University, and Vinh Long Community College in the Mekong Delta. Twenty percent of our college scholarships are awarded to women pursuing STEM professions.
We provide soft skills trainings in adaptive leadership, effective communications, problem-solving, and technology to help girls prepare for the workforce. WEAV recently piloted our training in effective communications to high school and college girls in the Mekong Delta.
The money we raise through the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund will be used for the following:
- 80% of funds raised will be used to develop and implement the Career Skills Program in its entirety. This program will allow WEAV to provide mentorship and workforce training to more young women in Vietnam who are high school and college graduates.
- 20% of funds raised will be used to provide scholarships.
We know that when they are armed with an education and workforce training, girls are more likely to escape poverty and to compete for higher paying jobs. Please help to support our efforts by donating to our campaign and sharing it with your friends and families.
This project is supported by the Girls Opportunity Alliance .
Your donation to benefit this campaign/project will be allocated to the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund (“GOA Fund”), a project of GoFundMe.org (a U.S. public charity). The Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund may grant a refund in limited circumstances at its sole and absolute discretion, however, donations are not refundable after the GoFundMe payment platform has transferred your donation to the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund. Transfers from GoFundMe to Girls Opportunity Alliance fund typically occur once monthly. All donations are subject to the variance power of GoFundMe.org, as stated in the applicable GoFundMe.org policies (https://www.gofundme.org/policies/).

The GOA Fund is restricted to supporting girls' education and your donation is made for the support of the above described project. Notwithstanding that the campaign description may name a specific organization that is anticipated to engage in the projects, GoFundMe.org retains variance power, that is, discretion and control over how funds are disbursed within the purposes of the GOA Fund generally, and within the purpose of the project specifically. For example, if the project does not reach its minimum fundraising goal, GoFundMe.org may re-assign money raised to another campaign within the GOA Fund.
As of April 11, 2019, the Direct Impact Fund operates as GoFundMe.org.
