One of the main aims of AVI is to create opportunities and forums for Vietnamese adoptees connect with each other and share community knowledge, resources and support. AVI has constantly evolved – negotiating over two decades of changes to technology – starting as a Yahoo Group, then website/blog and now has social networking resources including a FB Discussion group with over 1000 members. An Instagram is also being considered. Many of the AVI members are Viet adoptees, but others are allowed to join as observers only (no posting). The space gives priority to Vietnamese adoptee voices and the tone aims to be informative but also friendly and casual.
The AVI Facebook ‘Like’ Page is the best & most convenient way to get all the latest AVI & adoption news while connecting with other VN Adoptees. The AVI Facebook Page is updated much more regularly than the Yahoo! Group with current adoption news & events. This page is public so please be aware if leaving a comment. Please ‘like’ us on the left in the side bar to keep updated and your support is much appreciated.
The AVI Facebook Group is a more informal setting where the Vietnamese adoptee community has a chance to share their experiences. This is a closed group so it content is not visible to public but means it gives great space and platform for the community make it more active.
