"It made me think about the children..."

In December, Care for Children held the final two ‘Introduction to Foster Care’ workshops for government officials at the provincial and local levels, including staff from the two Social Protection Centres (orphanages) that are part of this pilot project. In total, 82 people attended the training.

The training, which aimed to raise awareness about foster care and its benefits, was delivered in an extremely interactive and participatory way, engaging the participants through a mix of case studies, small group discussions and brainstorms.

“It made me think about the children, knowing that when they receive love, they develop much better.” Participant

In March, the team will begin the delivery of eight workshops for staff at the two Social Protection Centres. This training will enable them to become family placement workers who can recruit, assess and train suitable foster carers from the local community, as well as place, support and monitor children as they move into families. Over the second half of the year, they will also receive tailored, on-site training every two weeks to walk them through their first placements.

Our ultimate goal is to for the two Social Protection Centres to launch successful family placement programmes – becoming the first government-run orphanages in the country to begin the process of moving orphaned and abandoned children into local foster families. This will serve as inspiration and a blueprint for all other orphanages across Vietnam.

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