Vietnamese Exchange Student Program
Another opportunity to impact lives in Vietnam is through our exchange student program. Since 2000 NorthWood families have hosted 66 exchange students during their junior / senior year of high school. Many of these students go on to attend universities in the United States and will return to Hanoi and become Vietnam’s future leaders. For more information about hosting an exchange student in the Dallas/Fort Worth area please contact us.

Orphan Camp Sponsorship
Each year GVI volunteers donate their time to provide a wonderful opportunity for children, from the Vietnamese orphanages supported by GVI, to enjoy something that many of us take for granted -- summer camp.

To make this wonderful blessing of summer camp available to the orphans and their caregivers, we need your help. Your sponsorship of just $100 covers the cost of sending a child to camp and includes transportation, food, lodging, insurance and activities during the entire trip. To sponsor a child, please visit our donation page.

Sports Equipment
GVI hosts sports camps for children in Vietnam teaching skills in baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and flag football. You can help by providing equipment for the children or a monetary donation to purchase equipment. If you have new or gently used sports equipment for any of these sports that you would like to donate, please contact us.

If you would like to help in other areas, please let us know! Contact Uyen Holdeman at
