Library of Dreams was founded in 2014 by Mdm. Nguyen Phi Van, Chairwoman of Retail & Franchise Asia Company, and Mr. Nguyen Van Tien Hung, head of Tuổi Trẻ Cười magazine, with the aim of developing a free creative library system for underprivileged children in  economically disadvantaged regions. Apart from books, the library shall be used as a community space for kids to learn various arts such as music, painting, photography.

Our Founder

Ms. Nguyen Phi Van graduated with an MBA in Australia, has lived and worked in more than 120 countries, and is an advisor to many governments in the field of franchising and innovation. She is also the author of books that inspire the fire to young people such as "Going the field to the world"; "Me, the future and the world"; "Start-up franchising – a short way to the world", "Tôi đi tìm tôi", "Nym - My Future Self", and "Tôi, Tương lai và thế giới'. 


With her global experiences, she hopes that the future of Vietnamese children will have greater access to knowledge, art and creativity, preparing for a tumultuous and challenging period of the century 21. 

"I choose community work to do, because I love my homeland, I love the people in general and the people of Vietnam in particular"
