WORK CONTEXT / BACKGROUND:

World Vision is a Christian relief and development organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty. World Vision serves all people regardless of 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. WVV has a total income of around US$ 18,000,000 (FY18) with funding from 13 support countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Funding of WVV consists of sponsorship program funding (70%) and PNS/grants (30%). WVV employs about 420 staff, of which 99% are Vietnamese nationals.

Currently, World Vision Vietnam is implementing 37 Area Programmes (APs) which operate in 5 zones: North: Hoa Binh - Dien Bien, Yen Bai – Tuyen Quang, Thanh Hoa - Hung Yen - Hai Phong, Central: Quang Tri - Quang Nam – Danang) and South (Quang Ngai - Binh Thuan – DakNong - Ho Chi Minh). WVV’s APs work 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.

TMSV’s Project Goal: This project will tackle Modern Slavery from Vietnam through harnessing the capacities of IOM, World Vision and British Council to implement a coordinated series of interventions that specifically align with existing work in Vietnam, and United Kingdom Official Development Assistance requirements in five target provinces: NghAn (Yên Thành; Din Châu); Hi Phòng (Hi Phòng city; Thy Nguyên); Qung Bình: (Đng Hi, BTrch); Hà Tĩnh (Can Lc; Nghi Xuân); and Qung Ninh (HLong city). This will be achieved by seeking change on the following impacts:

Impact area 1: will be achieved through first establishing the key factors that contribute to vulnerability before engaging the necessary government and non-government actors to raise awareness and change behaviour, including by promoting meaningful livelihood alternatives.

Impact area 2: vulnerable populations will be empowered through improved coordination, delivery and understanding of justice and social support services. Strategies for prosecution and sentencing will also be developed, whilst effective coordination among justice sector institutions will be achieved through promoting provincial level coordination mechanisms, including increased functionality of the national trafficking database.

Impact area 3: addresses this by building the capacity of key stakeholders involved in victim identification in Vietnam and the UK ensuring at-risk individuals are identified early and correctly, and victims are supported adequately, and with dignity. Rehabilitation and reintegration assistance therefore, will contribute significantly to reducing vulnerability to human trafficking, modern slavery and poverty.
