Driven by our unwavering commitment to protect the most vulnerable children, World Vision Vietnam is committed to protecting children from all forms of abuse, exploitation and injury, of which millions of children in Vietnam are victims. Our Child Protection Program contributes to the achievement of three Sustainable Development Goals: 5 (Gender Equality), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).
At community level, we support to consolidate and build capacity for the community-based child protection system. Child protection workers are empowered with guidelines and tools to enhance child protection and promote child participation. At the same time, knowledge and skills are provided to teachers, parents and caregivers to help them identify, prevent and report risks to the safety of their children as well as build positive and peaceful relationships at home and at school. Children themselves are taught about life skills and living values to better protect themselves and their peers.
At national level, we partner with concerned ministries and child-focused agencies to improve policies and reinforce policy implementation in order to tackle issues such as child abuse, child labor, child marriage, child trafficking, violence against children and child injury.
