Hien Vu

“It is a blessing to be a part of the dedicated IGE team that works towards respect, reconciliation, and religious freedom. I trust that when one understands religious freedom—also known as freedom of conscience—it is the beginning of the freedom and the rights that God grants equally to all human beings, and that they will value, cherish, and protect religious freedom for themselves and others.”

Ms. Vu has more than twenty years’ experience working in multinational and multicultural settings. She serves as the Vietnam Program Manager at IGE, focusing on religious freedom and human rights at the intersection of culture, politics and religion.

Her work at IGE demonstrates her commitment and capability in international relations, peace building, holistic community development and global education. Prior to joining IGE, Hien worked in the Voluntary Repatriation Program at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Hong Kong. She also worked on human resources and development with World Vision Vietnam. While pursuing education in Fresno, California, Hien worked for a multi-cultural humanitarian organization, Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries, to assist the Vietnamese community and other Southeast Asian refugee populations in the city. She graduated from Fresno Pacific University with her Master's degree in Peacemaking and Conflict Studies and Hanoi University with a Bachelor's degree in English.
