What is ILA Community Network?
Established in 2005, ILA Community Network (ILACN) is ILA Vietnam’s philanthropic arm. Our mission is to support disadvantaged children access education in and around the communities in which ILA operates across Vietnam.
All operating costs of the ILACN are covered by ILA Vietnam so that 100% of every contribution received goes to supporting ILACN’s mission. Today, ILA Vietnam, through our ILACN arm, continues to be the leading language school in providing sustainable charitable programmes in Vietnam.

State-School Sponsorship Programme
Each year, ILACN sponsors disadvantaged children from Elementary School to University to attend state school. The programme is designed to support children most in need, so we work with our NGO partners, who have the skills and expertise, in allocating the sponsorships to the children.
English Scholarship Programme
The English Scholarship Programme provides 100% scholarships for disadvantaged children so they can study English at ILA completely for free. The disadvantaged children who benefit from the programme are decided through our NGO partners.
Working with NGOs Programme
ILACN provides classes within shelters to help the children there have access to education. The classes are run by dedicated volunteer teachers who work at ILA and each class we provide is to an ILA-standard.
Where our funds come from
ILACN holds are a variety of fundraising events for its staff, parents and even the students. All aimed to raise funds to support its mission to help disadvantaged children access education.
Sponsorships are provided by the staff at ILA centres who chip in together to financially support children to attend state-school. Some members of ILA staff even sponsor children to go to school by themselves.
Each year, ILA allocates a budget dedicated to supporting its corporate social responsibility activities, ILACN. The funds are used to invest in fundraising events or are as part of direct donations to our NGO partners.
