ChildFund Vietnam was established in 1995 and is active in protecting children’s well-being by strengthening relationships among children, parents, community members, local organisations, teachers and schools, government and others. ChildFund’s mission is to improve children’s lives, from infancy to young adulthood, with better nutrition, health, safety, education and skills, enabling children to dream, achieve their potential and contribute to communities and society.
With the rapid growth and development Vietnam has experienced over the past years, its context is rapidly changing. ChildFund is well aware of these changing realities and has become more active in addressing child rights and protection at a number of different levels.
To assist ChildFund in these new roles, MDF Training & Consultancy delivered a strategic planning and change management workshop, and helped with the drafting process of ChildFund Vietnam’s Strategic Plan. ChildFund also asked us to deliver a knowledge management workshop. Finally, we were approached to facilitate a training and support process on advocacy and policy- influencing with an emphasis on child rights and protection.
The provided support has proven to strengthen the organisational capacity. The organisation, while still delivering on projects and programmes, is also increasing its engagement on child rights and child protection issues in Vietnam and globally.
