Background

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization working to improve the quality of life of people, especially children who are marginalized and living in poverty. World Vision helps all who are in need, regardless of their religion, race, ethnicity or gender. As a child-focused organization, WV’s work focuses on children, ensuring they are protected and their basic needs are met. World Vision Vietnam (WVV) has been funded from 13 support countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Funding of WVV consists of sponsorship program funding (70%) and Private Non-Sponsorship (PNS)/grants (30%). WVV employs about 430 staff, of which 93% are Vietnamese nationals. 

WVV is operating in 4 zones: North 1 (Hoa Binh, Dien Bien), North 2 (Yen Bai, Tuyen Quang, Hai Phong), Central (Thanh Hoa, Quang Tri and Da Nang) and South (Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Thuan, Ho Chi Minh, DakNong). WVV’s Area Program (AP) usually focuses within one administrative district of a province which populated by ethnic minority people with high rates of poverty. A uniqueness of WVV’s Development Program Approach (DPA) is that AP team members are based at district level where the AP is located, which enables them to work closely with government partners and communities on a daily basis. Beside the APs, WVV is also implementing different Special and Grant Projects to meet the specific needs of vulnerable children in both AP and non-AP areas.

Similar many other urban areas in Vietnam, the treatment and management of plastic waste in Hai Phong city faces many difficulties, mainly due to people's awareness that garbage classification has not been done at the source; the waste collection infrastructure system and treatment technology have not met the requirements. Plastic waste is treated in four ways: burning at a temperature below 1000°C; partial recycling; landfill and indiscriminately disposed of the environment. The above treatment methods all pollute the soil, water and air environment, affecting human health. Furthermore, children and adults’ knowledge and practices on solid waste, especially plastic pollution to marine are still limited; ii) Joint efforts to address marine debris as well as translating national policy practice in the local is still quite low connected. In addition, there are many open markets in Ngo Quyen district and big fishing port in Cat Hai coastal district that is big source of waste disposal. The waste classification would be applied effectively here to contribute marine debris management.

WVV in partnership with Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Ngo Quyen District and Cat Hai coastal District jointly propose a project on Marine Debris Clean-up which aims to enable key actors in Ngo Quyen district to effectively manage marine debris by enhancing partnership in Marine Debris clean-up and improving marine debris clean-up knowledge and practice.
