My name is Paul Dinh; I am the founder of Nirvana NGO Vietnam. Recently, I have just created a charity program aiming to provide free educational services to underprivileged students in Da Nang, Vietnam. The objective of this charity is to help low-income/underprivileged students to have an opportunity to learn English at no cost: To give them the same opportunity as the rest of their well-off peers, to give them hope and believe that they have the same playing field in this society that we all share.
A brief introduction about myself: I was born in Vietnam in 1989 and immigrated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA at the age of 2-years-old. I am a graduate of Michigan State University, BA’ in Business Management. I have been teaching English throughout Asia for the past 8 years. My philosophies are based on the linguistics of human psychology, cultural, and behaviors of human societal progression with aspects of Buddhism teachings. I implement my teachings with Buddha’s philosophy: to learn and to understand; there are always correlation and contradiction in every aspect of learning. Purely to create good karma and service(s) to humankind and human development, by helping those who are in need the most in progression. Please take a look at the mission statement below.
Thank you! A DI DA PHAT!
Helping others with a pure heart.

Believe and hope, are the two most wonderful gifts that our human mind have programmed in us when it comes to the reality of life. We all go through this life in progression. Too many teenagers, young adults and even middle-aged adults that are going through life aren’t truly are aware of their problems and situations. The build-ups can be devastating and terrifying when trying to confront the demons within us. Believe and hope; are the hallmarks keeping us intact.
Believing and hoping to give us a purpose in life. When we believe it gives us conviction and when we hope it gives us confidence; when we give up in life, and then we find something to believe in, it helps with a sense of purpose and when we hope, hope will help us to determine our path.
Nirvana NGO Vietnam is set up to help the youth, young adults, and handicapped of Vietnam. Our mission as a non-profit organization is to provide free English teaching to underprivileged students and children from low-income families. English classes are considered too expensive for low-income families wishing to send their children to further their English education here in Vietnam. Many English schools in Vietnam charge above average for tuition fees, simply because English education is considered privileged to those students with high-income families in society. Therefore, many underprivileged students are left without proper English education. The disparity and unbalanced can cause many problems for future generations; such as lack of development in self-esteem, workplace, mental pain, depression, societal development, etc. Here at Nirvana NGO Vietnam, we aim to counter-balance the disparity by providing free English education to those in need, to give underprivileged children the chance to have a proper English education, giving them hope to believe in their future – and future livelihood.
Nirvana NGO also aims to provide free meals to the homeless and needy. By providing free meals to those without a home will mean much for them. We are all human beings and we all deserve a meal with dignity, not from the trash of the streets.
In today’s Vietnamese society, the development of a changing economy from a war-torn country to one of the fastest developing economies in Southeast Asia can be challenging to the human mind. With a developing economy of at least 6% growth and as society changing quickly, the capacity of the human mind will take its toll. Many people in Vietnam are now facing mental issues more than ever before. With traditions fading out and new technologies replacing human labor, and heavy completion from disparity of social classes can lead to many mental disorders and psychological problems. We at Nirvana NGO are helping with this issue by counseling to those with mental issues, giving life advice, having meaningful conversations, group activities and much more regarding helping one’s mental trap. By providing listening and talking secessions may we help ease some pain and relief for those who are in need.
As this is a non-profit organization, we are funded through donations and the goodwill of the people. All donations are contributed to the funding of these programs, in regards to English education, providing free meals, and counseling to those with mental issues.
