Hoang Ha Pham
iLEAP International Fellow, 2014
Ha is the Program Officer and Project Manager of PeaceTrees VietNam, a Seattle-based organization dedicated to healing Central Vietnamese communities affected by war. Working in the Quang Tri Province, PeaceTrees is involved in landmine removal and education, survivor assistance, community assistance, and citizen diplomacy.
Ha is dedicated to helping local community members overcome the aftermath of the war, and firmly believes that PeaceTrees VietNam is the perfect place for her to do so. “I have a deep commitment and passion for the mission of PeaceTrees. It has become not only the place for me to give what I have but also the place for me to continue to develop professionally.”
Ha is looking forward to the iLEAP program because she believes that “when one person has a stronger belief in herself and her capacity, she can better contribute to the organization she is working for and the community she is living with.”
