"I've learnt what children need for their mental health."

The workshop in full swing
The workshop in full swing

In October the team held its first official training workshop in partnership with the Vietnamese government.

Care for Children is in the early stages of introducing foster care to the child welfare system in Vietnam. This is the first official workshop in a series of workshops that will build the capacity of government stakeholders and Social Protection Centres (orphanages) across Vietnam in local family placement/foster care.

The ‘Introduction to Foster Care’ workshop was held over 1 ½ days, with directors from both project sites and high level management from the local government in attendance. In total 40 people attended.

Our government partner delivered the first part of the workshop, explaining the new childcare law and the law on foster care. Care for Children’s training manager then led the ‘Introduction to Foster Care’ training. With the aim of raising awareness about foster care and its benefits, the training was delivered in an interactive and participatory way, engaging the participants through case studies, small group discussions and brainstorms.

In order to determine the effectiveness of the training and the degree of knowledge change, questionnaires were distributed to participants before and after the workshop. The participants’ average scores for their knowledge of foster care increased from 3.0 to 4.2 (1 = low; 5 = high). This proved the training was successful and well received by the audience. The following are some testimonies from the participants.

“The training is very interactive, informative and useful.”

“The trainer was very knowledgeable. I was very touched and impressed with the case stories shared by the trainer.”

“I've learnt what children need for their mental health. After we go back home, we will try our best to provide individualized care to our children to meet their emotional needs.”

 Once again, thank you for your support and staying connected to our work.
