To sustain our impact on child well-being, World Vision Việt Nam seeks to strengthen the community and household livelihoods so that they are better equipped to improve household income and assets, have food security, and provide for their children’s uncompromisable needs. This will eventually contribute to the reduction of malnourished children. Our Livelihoods Program contributes to the achievement of three Sustainable Development Goals: 1 (No Poverty), 2 (Zero Hunger), and 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth). 




Our key approach is to build up community resilience upon the foundation of each household’s economic strength. We set up interest groups where households members are introduced to our evidence-based package of livelihood intervention at both production level and market development level. Some key models in this package include System of Rice Intensification, Livestock Initiative For Transformation, Local Value Chain Development, and Savings Groups. We also extend micro-finance to producer households and small-scaled entrepreneurs that have limited or no access to financial services but need additional funds to buy production input or increase their capital. 

In urban and peri-urban areas, we have programs to provide disadvantaged youth with opportunities for meaningful participation, vocational training, and job placement, which can lead them to a successful and resilient adult life.
