Vietnam

The child friendly communities and districts project

The objective of the project that is to take place in the Province of Lao Cai, Northern Vietnam, is to increase respect for children’s rights by improving their physical, healthcare and psychosocial environment.

To this end, E&D works closely with the communities involved (neighbourhood committees in the districts or communes involved, women’s unions, teenage unions, schools, children, parents, etc), the local authorities and government ministries.

As a result, the communities themselves carry out many of the activities in schools and villages aimed at children and adults, with technical and financial help from E&D.

The project has 5 key elements: education, healthcare, community development, support for children’s rights and training local project stakeholders - see http://www.enfantsetdeveloppement.org/encours/VN-Projet%20VN-Lao%20Cai.pdf). Today, it is regarded as a model for Vietnamese development in regions inhabited by ethnic minorities and regularly used as an example by the Vietnamese government which would like to see it extended to other parts of the country.
