Hmong National Development, Inc. (HND) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to building capacity, developing leadership and empowering the Hmong American community.
HND envisions a vibrant Hmong American community leading in educational achievement, economic development, civic and cultural engagement and social justice.
HND strengthens community by developing and providing individuals and Hmong non-profits with resources, training, and technical assistance that enable local communities to achieve lasting social benefits. As the only national Hmong organization in Washington, DC, we advocate on issues of importance to Hmong Americans. We train and develop youth leadership to build capacity for the next generation of Hmong leaders through the provision of internship opportunities. We also help build a strong foundation for the community by supporting the higher education dreams of Hmong students through the provision of scholarships. Annually, we convene the Hmong National Conference and provide regional trainings to bring professionals, community members, youth, and decision makers together to network, share, and learn about the community's challenges, as well as to celebrate the community's accomplishments. We collaborate and partner with other national and local organizations in a variety of ways to better serve our community.
