Dear our friends and donors,

We are happy to share with you the latest updates on our project: Educate 3000 children against societal risks.

As mentioned before in the previous report, we are on the way to implement another training for children in Thua Thien Hue in this September with the support of Global Giving and French Embassy in Vietnam.

The training is equipping for 3000 students at secondary schools and children in community in the province with knowledge and skills to protect themself from sexual abuse and exploitation, human trafficking, domestic violence, unsafe migration, etc.

Besides that, the material used in the training continues being updated the contents following the suggestions of participants joining the training in Thua Thien Hue last year. We are still working on the new lessons and will update you in the next report. Updating training material is an important part of the project that we plan to do every year to make sure the contents meet the needs of the local characteristics where the training is implemented. Last year, we added three more lessons including: (1)child marriage, (2) incest and (3) human trafficking through border of Laos, Cambodia and China - which are necessary for ethnic children participating in    the training in A Luoi, a mountainous district lies between A Shau Valley and the border with Salavan and Sekong provinces, Laos.

This October, we organize another training for 1.000 students at secondary schools in Saigon, the biggest city of Vietnam. Since the project was started in the city in 2008, it has gained lots of praise from stakeholder including students, teachers and parents and many positive comments on the project because of its necessity. According to the data collected from parents 6 months ago: 87,6% of parents feel more secure when their children was equipped the skills and knowledge, 93,6% think that the training is necessary and 85,8% agree that The Ministry of Education and Training should organize the similar program as an extracurricular activity for students at schools.     

AAT believes that prevention is better than a cure. We do prevention in specialized groups and we do prevention in common groups. Our program has made more people pay attention to the realities of our children and ways that they could be involved to make positive changes. Now, thanks to Global Giving, more individual donors notice and are providing support for our project. Many parents, teacher, schools have raised their voices with us about making sex education for children is a right.

Last but not least, we would like to express our deepest thanks to you, the donor of our project. Please keep following and supporting us on Global Giving or contact us directly at: vnaction@allianceantitrafic.org

 

Kind regards,

Hello.

Nice to share with you again about our last progresses of this program. During the second year quarter, we trained 5 French social workers student, in practical training and application in the field for a French NGO. These students have the mission to train children in state orphan centers about risks of sexual abuse, exploitation and human trafficking. Reproductive health and other prevention tips are also provided. The first training with children in Vung Tau orphan center where applied with the french social workers and AAT staff. (See the joined pictures)

Today, our prevention program is one of the most advanced in Vietnam and those that reaching the longest experience since its beginning in 2008. However, our challenge is to continually develop it, to make the best prevention education program as possible. We studied for the addition of more useful information for self-protection, such as the approach taken by recruiters through social media (very young children play a lot with connected phones to often watch video clips.) and sexual harasement (86% of Vietnamese teenagers and women are victims of sexual harasement. Teenagers are more often victims during public bus transportation to school).

Another interesting news: Recently, The VN newspapers reported that in Ho Chi Minh City, education services will educate children at schools about risks of sexual abuse. If this is the case, it is a good start for the protection of Vietnamese children.

Thanks to the support of GlobalGiving and of the French Embassy in Vietnam, new training session will starts in September in Thua Thien Hue Province for about 4000 children and parents. Now, the children finished their last examination and will enter in summer holydays soon.

Best regards

Just a month ago, we received the information from a woman wishing to be a candidate for a job in Europe with a salary of 1300€, proposed in a post in Facebook. After contacting the recruitment agency, this woman received strange information such as "It is necessary to pay 2,500 dollars to register and it is forbidden to take one's mobile phone. We checked the announce and the company and we recommend the woman not to apply it. She contacted us because she knows the prevention program that we spread to communities against human trafficking risks. It is difficult to assess the impact of education on prevention, but to date, this woman's story is additional proof that we can collect.

Previously, schools in Ho Chi Minh City informed us that, since we applied our reproductive health prevention education, they no longer registered pregnancies in middle schools, whereas they previously recorded about 15 cases per year and by school.

These testimonials encourage us to provide our prevention to as many people as possible. But, unfortunately, access to funding for Vietnam is severally reduced in recent years and dozens of NGOs are forced to close each year. In the meantime, the press regularly reports  that the problem of child sexual abuse, human trafficking, prostitution, use of drug, domestic violence and other societal problems continue to grow regularly.

When we have many victims like in Vietnam, that is an alert about something wrong in the community and that prevention education must be developed and our program provides the best or one of the best solution for the protection of communities, especially children.

Since January, because the Lunar New year and the agenda of schools, we not applied new courses in schools. The program will start in April, that’s why for this report I like to share some results of our survey with the ethnic communities people we educated last year.

334 interviews collected from 6,200 people of the ethnic minority population trained (The numbers correspond to Strongly agree and agree)

-The information provided is useful for me: 98.7%

-The information is clear and easy to understand: 98.1%

-The information is important and necessary for my community: 99.3%

-Will you share received information with other members in your family? 99.4%

-Will you share received information with other members in your community? 98.5%

-Do you feel more confident and less worry after knowing these information? 98.1%

-Do you think students need to be equipped with similar information? 98.5

-        - When do you think students need to be equipped with these information? Kindergarten 7.7%, Primary school 16.7%, Secondary school 53.3%, High school 18.9% University 1.9% after university 1.5%.

-How do you improve your knowledge about the following information? (The numbers correspond to very much and much)

Human trafficking 88.5%, cross-border human trafficking 86.8% sexual abuse 86.78%, child marriage 90.13%, incest 83.45%

 Feedback from the communities: (Ethnic minorities and disadvantaged children)

The questions proposed are different of the questions for children in school. The questions are more related to their lives in their communities and we do not ask them questions about the role of the Ministry of Education in their education.

It is important to note that the “Strongly agree and Agree” fills 99% of the answers. People seem much more concerned and involved than children in schools. Probably because according to the Ministry of Public Security, ethnic groups are 10 times more affected by the problems we are talking about in our program than the Kinh population, representing the majority of Vietnamese.

The success of our project in Vietnam is a real source of motivation to continue to develop it more.

Since we implemented it in six provinces in Vietnam, we have received calls from education departments in many other provinces asking us to apply it in their province.

The first national TV channel VTV1 and the Security of the Territory channel under the Vietnam Ministry of Public Security, interviewed children, school headmasters and director of the Department of Social Vice Prevention.  about the impact of our program:

-Hue City: Girl 12 years old N.L.A.K. “I less worry because my teacher teaches me tools, information and education to make me able to protect myself, my family and my friends along my life, against danger and risks as in the topic. I am so happy to receive this education today”. (Interview: ANTV, Security of the territory police channel).

-Thanh Hoa province. Girl 14 years old N.K.L. Dear AAT, your training in prevention is too useful and I hope you can apply this training to all students in my province and throughout Vietnam so they have a better psychological approach to their lives. (Interview VTV1)

-Hue city: Mrs T.T.T.H., headmaster of a middle school, “I consider the training provided by AAT as one of the most important to provide to children. The training combats taboos to address very bad stories that children, especially girls, are at risk of being victimized and offers all possible solutions for community and self-protection. (Interview: ANTV, Security of the territory police channel)

-Thanh Hoa Province: Mr. H.T.N., director of the social prevention services of Thanh Hoa Province: When I discovered the content of the training offered by AAT, I immediately recognized that this program is fundamental and a priority. (Interview: VTV1)

Over the last two years, we have found solutions to implement the program with fewer funds and more beneficiaries, which has allowed us to reach 200% of our expectations.

We are closing this two-years program with more than 40,000 people trained at an average cost of $ 5 per person, including all expenses and management fees.

We will continue and expand in order to educate more children and families as possible about social risks such as sexual abuse and exploitation and the risks of human trafficking. Continue to support us. Thank you very much for all who helped us and a special thanks for GlobalGiving.
