During his reception for Program Quality and Resource Development Director at World Vision Vietnam Dan Mtonga, Minh applauded the fruitful results produced by the World Vision-funded ‘Protecting children and young people from violence, exploitation and abuse on the internet’ project which have been carried out in the city for nearly three years.

Minh said he hopes that World Vision will continue carrying out the second stage of the project in the city after its first stage comes to end in September, 2021.

He also asked for support from World Vision to expand this project across Da Nang.

Vice Chairman Minh vowed that Da Nang government would create the most favourable conditions for World Vision International to keep its project running smoothly in the city.

He took the opportunity to ask World Vision International to give Da Nang a helping hand to the city-launched ongoing campaign to stop violence against women and girls in order to yield effective results from this campaign.

The first stage of the ‘Protecting children and young people from violence, exploitation and abuse on the internet’ project started to implement in Son Tra, Hai Chau and Cam Le districts in September, 2018. It is expected to come to end in September, 2021.

Over the past nearly three years, the project has supported the establishment of 12 core groups of children at 12 schools with 150 children in total, 116 children's clubs with a combined total of nearly 4,000 members. In addition, more than 14,400 children have been facilicitated to participate in school, district and city-level events to give information about online child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Besides, the project has helped Da Nang set up two facilities to provide support for school pupils who experienced online sexual harassment and abuse, cyber bullying, as well as give preventive interventions to vulnerabe children and young people.

At the meeting, World Vision Vietnam's representatives expressed their gratitude to Da Nang city and the mentioned departments for their thorough support during the implementation of World Vision Vietnam's programs and activities.

Also at the event, the two parties shared their commitment to continue accompanying each other in a spirit of cooperation and mutual support towards the fullness of life for all children and vulnerable communities in Da Nang./.
