Over 65 of our Vietnamese friends attended SIF Connects! Hanoi in May 2019. The event marked 25 years of friendship and collaborations between Singapore and Vietnam - on initiatives ranging from education and healthcare to social entrepreneurship. Recent SIF milestones in Vietnam included Words on Wheels, the mobile library programme that gave over 14,000 Vietnamese children access to more books.
At the event, a commitment to new joint efforts was sealed through a five-year renewal of a Memorandum of Understanding between the SIF and Vietnam-Singapore Friendship Association.
