Collective remittances and education: An exploration of Vietnamese Americans’ educational nonprofit work in Viet Nam

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Remittances, or international financial transfers of immigrants, have
been acknowledged as an important source of national and household
income for those in the receiving country. This paper focuses on
collective remittances, which involve a collective method of giving
and a wider recipient base compared to remittances sent to an
immigrant’s immediate social circle. Two NGOs established by
Vietnamese Americans and their educational projects in Viet Nam are
highlighted as examples of collective remittances. With Vietnamese
American founders who desired to give back to Viet Nam, these NGOs
demonstrate the transnational ties that bind immigrants to the country
of origin. The paper provides an analysis of how the organizations’
projects fit within the global educational development agenda and
offers the conclusion that the transnational ties of immigrants may be
tapped for future educational development work.
