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, WVs 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 14 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 440 staff, of which 99% are Vietnamese nationals.

Currently, World Vision Vietnam is implementing 37 Area Programmes (APs) which operate in 5 zones: North1 ( Hoa Binh, and Dien Bien), Yen Bai Tuyen Quang, North 2 (Hung Yen, Thanh Hoa, Hai Phong); Central (Quang Tri, Quang Nam Danang) and South (Quang Ngai, Binh Thuan, Ho Chi Minh, DakNong). From FY18, WVV adopts and implements the new operating model, therefore, the name of ADP will be changed to AP (Area Programme). WVVs APs usually focus within one administrative district of a province which populated by ethnic minority people with high rates of poverty. A uniqueness of WVVs 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.

EVAC project in Viet Nam is to care for and protect vulnerable children and youth from child trafficking, abuse, neglect, exploitation and all other forms of violence within supportive families and communities in 4 APs (Luc Yen and Van Chan APs in Yen Bai province; Muong Cha and Tuan Giao APs in Dien Bien province). From October 2017 to September 2019 (2 years), the project plans to achieve 4 main outcomes: (i) children and youth, especially the most vulnerable, are empowered with the skills and knowledge to reduce their personal risk to trafficking and related forms of violence; (ii) families and caregivers are provided with access to adequate and appropriate services in order to care for and protect their children; (iii) communities are strengthened and working together to create a safe and protective environment for all children; (iv)Systematic barriers are reduced to addressing violence against children, including trafficking.
