The Wondrous Vision of the Virtual Assistant Circle

Language localization isn’t just about business. It’s also about people, and sometimes its humanitarian benefits far outweigh any contributions to the bottom line.

Such is the case with the Virtual Assistant Circle, a program managed by the Friends of Hue Foundation, a U.S.-based nonprofit that runs a shelter for abused children and orphans in Hue, Vietnam.

In this episode of Globally Speaking, Jenny Do, an attorney in Silicon Valley, and Anna Nguyen, an IoT engineer at Cisco, share the fascinating story of how their passion to relieve suffering evolved into a program that uses language localization training as a means of developing leadership skills—and saving lives—of abandoned Vietnamese children.
