ChildFund in Vietnam's Achievements during 2015-2016

ChildFund in Vietnam is happy to see, and be part of, positive change for children. We are proud to be part of a global network of people and organisations that are working tirelessly to tackle child poverty.

The work we do in Vietnam is helping children and youth come closer to the moment when they can confidently say: “I am safe. I am educated. I am heard. I have a future.” In Vietnam during 2015-2016 we have seen many significant developments in the fight against poverty since the launch of the Millennium Development Goals. Children and their families have better access to water and healthcare and the quality of education has improved.

In the last year, we have partnered with local organisations, communities and the government to address the causes of this inequality and we will continue to do so in the coming years. Independent consultants, the people we work with, and our own Development Effectiveness Framework, confirm that ChildFund programs have contributed to significant change for the children and families in the communities where we work.

We are living in a time of change and disruption that is creating new risks and challenges for children. Our programs will continue to adapt and respond to strengthen children’s protection and advance their rights. In the last year our work has tackled issues such as climate change, declining economic opportunities and the safety of children and youth in an increasingly connected world. In the coming years, guided by our new Strategic Plan, we will continue to address the realities of children living in poverty – to promote the participation of children in community life, to strengthen their protection, and advance their rights.

Our work is made possible because of the support and work of many. On behalf of all the staff at ChildFund in Vietnam I would like to thank our many supporters, donors, partner organisations, governments, local leaders, children, youth and their families.

Yours sincerely,

 

Deborah Leaver
Country Director
