This article is based on an article written for the NGO Handbook by Kate Perchuk titled "Vietnam and the Third Sector."

Currently non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in Vietnam are as diverse as the programs and projects they implement. A large number are development organizations, but there are also NGOs concentrating on the environment, conservation, charity, relief, reconstruction and reconciliation. It is difficult to estimate with precision the number of NGOs in Vietnam. According to statistics reported in December 2006 by the United States International Grantmaking Council on Foundations, governmental reports and research, there are over 300 associations at the national level, 2,150 associations at the provincial level, 1,500 foundations and funds, and tens of thousands of NGOs at the grassroots levels.
