Care for Children team preparing to travel to Vietnam

We’re excited to announce that over the next few weeks, members from the UK and Thai teams will be travelling to Hanoi to set-up a project office, prior to the launch of this exciting project.  

The official launch of the project is not until July 1st to coincide with new legislation that is coming into effect.  This new legislation - the result of the Vietnam government attending one of our previous family placement conferences in Thailand - formalizes foster care as a positive alternative to institutional care.  This is a monumental development, as, up until now, there has been no mention of foster care in national legislation.  

Although legislative foundations for family-based care are gradually being built in Vietnam, not enough is being done to practically equip those at the grassroots level to see these systemic changes take hold nationally.  This is where we come in.

From July, our team in Vietnam will start working with two social protection centres (orphanages).  We will introduce them to the concept of family placement, while we develop and test our training materials, prior to rolling out our programme nationwide!

We will let you know once there are any further developments.  Once again, thank you for your support and staying connected with our work.
