Cao Bang Program area

In Cao Bang, ChildFund has been working in Trung Khanh (formerly Tra Linh) and Quang Hoa (formerly Quang Uyen) district since 2009. In comparison with other districts in Cao Bang, the two mentioned districts are among the most remote and challenging. Trung Khanh is located more than 350 kilometres from the capital of Hanoi but it may take you around 8 hours of driving to reach a community there. In Tra Linh, residents live in 2 towns and 19 different communities, known as “communes”, most of which are noted in the Vietnam Government’s list of communes with extreme difficulties.
