The VUFO-INGO Resource Centre Vietnam INGO Directory started as a joint initiative between international non-governmental organizations working in Vietnam (INGOs), the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre and the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO). It was first published in 1991. The INGO Directory lists detailed information provided by member organisations of the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre, including their programmes, the provinces they operate in and the programme sectors they operate in. It also lists the contact details for bilateral development agencies, United Nations organisations, embassies, Government Ministries and other Vietnamese institutions. Other information includes breakdowns of international NGO work by province and by sector, official regulations governing international NGOs and information about the People's Aid Coordinating Committee (PACCOM), the authority that registers the NGOs.
As of 2010 the INGO Directory is available online at the home page of the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre. The public online version offers listing of all member INGOs with their contact details and basic information. Members can access the full directory by logging-in and retrieve specific information on INGOs' history in Vietnam, projects, staff, budgets, partners, locations and other important information. Full access allows screening and mapping of INGOs, based on their programmatic and geographical focuses. A printed version of INGO Directory is published from time to time and available to members of the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre free of charge, while a fee is charged for non-members. To visit online INGO Directory click on the INGO Directory button on the menu bar at the top of this page.
