Supporting changemakers to build a better world

Inspired by interconnectedness, the Nguyễn-Phương Family holds the belief that every individual deserves to live with dignity. Their goal is to create and facilitate the connections for the betterment of the world through engagement of changemakers leaving the world a little better than they found it.

LIF met with Jeremy Nguyễn Phương, co-founder of Udentity, a platform to showcase the unique identity of Youth in China. With experience in the social sector since the age of 12, he is also son of Mr. Nguyễn Phương Lam, a distinguished philanthropist in Asia.

The Nguyễn-Phương Family supports organizations and changemakers that enhance the wellbeing of humanity. Their approach involves investment, collaborations and resource sharing. They firmly believe in fostering systemic change and championing patient capital in their philanthropic efforts, with a focus on initiatives across Asia.

Supporting changemakers to build a better world

Jeremy provided us an elaborate explanation on the following pillars that their projects encompassed:

  • Education for All :

Believing in the power of individuals and communities to shape their futures, they see education as a key driver of social opportunity and equity, supporting diverse initiatives for quality education access.

  • Poverty Alleviation :

Poverty entails more than the lack of income and productive resources; it’s about supporting those less fortunate to create sustainable solutions with an aim to reduce inequalities and foster a pay-it-forward society for a better world.

  • Inner Change :

Humanity is at a stage where we need a change in consciousness, with new goals grounded in the notion of interconnectedness. Thus, without fostering inner change, no sustainable societal change is possible.

  • System Change:

Endorsing education as the driving force behind social opportunities and equity, the Nguyễn-Phương Family actively supports a range of initiatives that give everyone a right to a quality education.

It was a valuable occasion to connect with fellow philanthropists and gain insights into their efforts to improve the world. Sharing a similar approach, we aspire to collaborate with the Nguyễn-Phương Family in the near future to contribute to our shared mission.
