ChildFund Vietnam acknowledges the multi-disciplinary collaboration and integration necessary for all key child right areas we focus and will support selected dependent connections between child protection, education, and health. In this approach, the gender, disability and SEL cross-cutting areas will be more specifically designed through interventions identified to focus on the well-being, learning opportunities to develop and enhance the social and emotional skills, to provide inclusive participation and leadership opportunities for ethnic minority students. As well as to develop curriculum programs and extra-curricular programs for ethnic minority schools that build the capacity of teachers and school management to improve knowledge, attitudes and practices around gender equality, sexual and reproductive health, and online safety of the students.
To promote and enhance the rights-based approach in our project cycle life, including meaningful participation of all stakeholders in ChildFund’s project related decisions is one of our priorities in programming approach. We will work closely with local partners to enable the establishment and development of community-based organisations representing the most vulnerable groups (ethnic minority women, girls, people with disabilities) and increase their presence and engagement in discussions in national and local program forums. By integrating GEDSI into ChildFund’ s programming, we aim to promote changes in social norms that address gender inequality and disability exclusion. Women and youth-led organisations, especially grassroots women and youth unions and newly formed organisations of persons with disabilities (OPDs), will diversify the way we work with communities.
ChildFund Vietnam will enhance indigenous knowledge and experience in the upbringing of children, applying user-friendly technology and social networking platforms (KOBO / Facebook / Zalo) to promote the voice of participants and beneficiaries through the collection of testimonies, video stories and photos as evidence of the changes.
