The third office of the Vietnam Volunteer Information Resource Centre (VVIRC) opened in the central city of Da Nang on June 18.

The establishment of a VVIRC office in the central region aims at narrowing the gap between volunteers and organisations of volunteers.

It also provides knowledge and training courses to improve voluntary activities implemented by individuals, organisations and volunteer clubs in 19 cities and provinces in the region.

The office, together with two other VVIRC offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City , operates to maintain and develop volunteer activities broadly and effectively.

Via VVIRC and its regional offices, those who are interested in volunteer activities will be provided with the latest information relating to volunteer activities, organisations and policies, training courses and volunteer networks nationwide and worldwide.

Established since 2010, VVIRC is the first national institution for the promotion and support of volunteerism for development in Vietnam.-VNA
