How can you help?

Since the Vietnam Book Drive is a voluntary and non-profit project, your help and support, small or big, are vital to its success. Let’s give a hand and help to bring books and knowledge to students in Vietnam.

Donate books

By donating your books, you can give hundreds of students in Vietnam a better access to knowledge. Please be a part of this important impact by simply send us an email at and we will arrange a pickup of your books.

Donate money

One dollar may not be enough to buy a textbook or ship a book to Vietnam. But collectively, one thousand dollars can ship thousands of books to Vietnam. Any financial contribution, small or large, will help more books to reach students in Vietnam faster.

You may donate to The Vietnam Book Drive Project via Paypal using this Donate button. 

Don’t forget to let us know your name so that we can show you our appreciation for your support.
