We are now launching the Nhip Song Book Drive 2009-2010 and are seeking your help. The next shipment of textbooks will be delivered to International University - VNU, University of Economics - HCM , and New Space Art Foundation. We urge you to consider donating your textbooks to our worthy cause rather than re-selling them. Your generosity can make a big difference in the education and betterment of thousands of Vietnamese students and faculties by providing them with the tools they need to build a better Vietnam for the 21st century. In particular, we need books in the areas of agriculture, engineering, computer, business, social science, medicine, and environmental studies.
