Viet Nam National Volunteer Awards 2014
Honoring volunteer efforts for the development of Viet Nam

The year 2014 in Viet Nam is known as "the Year of Volunteer Youth". This year has been ended with good impressions on volunteering activities across the country. These again, have confirmed the involvement of youth and volunteers in different aspects of social life, and effectively supported the development of Viet Nam. It’s impossible not to mention the organizations and individuals, who have contributed outstanding initiatives and efforts in order to identify, resolve, as well as raising awareness of the community towards social issues.
The National Volunteer Awards (NVA) is aimed at bringing recognition and encouragement to volunteer involving organizations and volunteers, who have shown dedicated services and excellent achievement in volunteer works and activities for the community, and contributed to the development and national defence of Viet Nam.

Officially launched in July 2014, NVA 2014 has attracted plenty of attention and participation from not only the volunteers but also the young community in Viet Nam. After meticulous consideration and evaluation, 11 organizations and 5 individuals, representing the best typical examples of volunteerism across the country in the year of 2014, have been selected to be honoured at the Awarding Ceremony out of approximately 300 applications with detailed profiles and descriptions of volunteer initiatives, activities and future directions (see the list of winners in the appendix below).

The National Volunteer Awards is an annual activity starting since 2011, held by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union in collaboration with the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) program in Viet Nam, the media (VTV6, Thanh Nien...) and stakeholder organizations.

UNV supports the National Volunteer Awards as a way to recognize the value of volunteerism in building more equitable communities and fostering a more cohesive society in Viet Nam.

The NVA awarding ceremony was conducted on January 18th, 2015 at Park 23/9, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.
