Volunteers for Peace Vietnam (VPV) is a non-profit, voluntary organization founded in 2005 with the aim to promote voluntary service as a means of cultural and educational exchange among people to generate peace and friendship, and as an approach to address social issues. Vision: VPV’s vision is a world of peace, where all people live together with mutual respect, have equal opportunities to develop to their full potential and have respect for the environment. “Young Skill-up” is one of VPV’s programs aiming at empowering local youth by equiping them with necessary knowledge and skills in the globalized world.
