New Life Page for "Invisible" Children - Vietnam

by Research Center for Management and Sustainable Development (MSD)
New Life Page for "Invisible" Children - Vietnam

On 23 August 2019, in Ho Chi Minh City, the Research Center for Management and Sustainable Development (MSD) in collaboration with the Department of Justice of Ho Chi Minh City organized the launching workshop of the "New life page" Project - Promoting the right to birth registration for disadvantaged children in Ho Chi Minh City during the period of June 2019 - May 2020. The launching workshop kicked off a series of forthcoming activities aimed at connecting stakeholders in supporting underprivileged children, including direct financial and technical assistance for 130 disadvantaged children to be granted a birth certificate in Ho Chi Minh City. The workshop was also an opportunity for stakeholders to better understand the process of issuing a birth certificate and the importance of a birth certificate to their lives.

 The "New life page" Project has been implemented by MSD since 2014 and has supported 45 disadvantaged children in Ho Chi Minh City. In the period of June 2019 - May 2020, the project is implemented with the coordination of the Department of Justice of Ho Chi Minh City and its stakeholders. 

The participants of the workshop include representatives from MSD, Department of Justice of Ho Chi Minh City, Department of Labor - Invalids and Social City of Ho Chi Minh City, Legal Aid Center of Ho Chi Minh City, other district departments, many immigrant families, children without birth certificates, representatives of social organizations, shelters, open houses, some families whose have been supported to get birth certificates and other identification documents.

 The  "New life page" project aims to increase access to birth certificates for disadvantaged children in Ho Chi Minh City through:

(1) Raising awareness and capacity of social organizations and communities on the children's rights of birth certificates for and how to exercise their rights in accordance with Vietnamese laws.

(2) Increasing access to counseling, legal support services for disadvantaged children, and support about 130 disadvantaged children in making birth certificates.

 A representative from MSD stated: “The involvement of stakeholders including the involvement of authorities, parents and caregivers, social organizations, the community and the children themselves is extremely important in the process of realizing birth rights for children. In order to reach the goal of supporting 130 children in the project and hundreds, maybe thousands of children are still missing documents, we call for the support of stakeholders, helping them not to become "Invisible" and have a chance to approach a brighter future".

Dear MSD’s donor,

Are you ready to be with MSD in a successive period of our project to help 100 new cases of disadvantaged children to get their personal documents, especially the birth certificate?

Do you want to know what they dream of or who they wanna be in the future?

Do you want to give them and their families a hand to make their dreams come true?

The faster these 100 cases can get their birth certificate, the sooner they can start their new school year this September.

With funding sources from Global Giving and other national ones, MSD and The Legal Aid Center in Ho Chi Minh City have been doing our best to plan the coming project activities.

MSD will keep you updated with the further implementation of the project!

Dear MSD's Donors,

We hope everything there is going good as expected!

These days have marked our one-year anniversary of the project "A new life page for 35 street children in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam". The same feelings come like the day we got the news of winning the challenge from Global Giving.

We would like to thank you for giving us your trust and believing in what we have been doing together to help street children in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to get their personal documents. 

Here are some numbers we want to share with you:

  • 11 cases are completed (as in details: 4 in Binh Chanh; 3 in District 8; 2 in Thu Duc; 1 in Go Vap and 1 in Tan Phu)
  • 12 cases to be completed by the end of July 2018
  • 63 donors all over the world
  • $6,098 raised out of $7,700

Each case that is completed gives us the materials regarding legal aspects and real situations faced by street children and inspires us to step further in the project. 

What's next?

Coming soon is the story of Kiet and his siblings. Would you love to hear about their dreams in the future?

Stay updated with our follow-ups!

 

Sincerely,

MSD Team
