From March 10 to 12, World Vision Vietnam joined hands with the Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs of Muong Cha district in the northern province of Dien Bien, to organize a training course on implementing the Family Visit Model (also known as Household Visit Model) for 24 participants who are district/commune social workers and village collaborators.
The course helped equip instructors and collaborators with basic knowledge and skills on the model. This will be the basis for applying the model to management, thereby promptly supporting local most vulnerable children, including children who are in special circumstances and those who are at risk of being exploitation.
Household Visit Model aims to support families to better protect and take care of their children, especially those who are or are at risk of being in special circumstances.
During the visits, households are consulted and connected with social services, which helps improve the well-being and increase the participation of children, families, and communities.
It is expected that in fiscal year 2021 World Vision Vietnam will implement the Household Visit Model in 13 villages from 3 target communes in Muong Cha district.
Since 1990, World Vision has joined hands with the Vietnamese government and other non-governmental organizations to carry out many relief, development, and advocacy programs. World Vision currently operates in 15 cities and provinces throughout Vietnam with a total aid amount of 20 million USD/year.
WVI Vietnam mainly focuses on conducting activities for children's well-being particularly in some fields like health, education, children's participation, and children protection. Every year, about 3 million children are given assistance through child-sponsorship in Vietnam.
Four districts in Dien Bien Province benefiting from World Vision’s project in Vietnam include Muong Cha, Tua Chua, Dien Bien Dong, and Tuan Giao. The project has organized a number of activities to assist children especially those who are poor and under special circumstances. It also promotes propaganda and equips children with skills in preventing injury and violence so that they can know to report unusual cases to the adults and competent authorities./.
