Serving the local population since 1989
ADRA Vietnam emphasizes long-term development, though we have proven our competence in emergency relief, too. We build capacity in the people of Vietnam by promoting leadership and enabling beneficiaries to become proactive and ultimately self-supporting. Our education and health programs are designed to help us accomplish this goal.Como colaborar
Capacity Statement OverviewTay Ninh is one of the poorest provinces in Vietnam, with one of the highest populations of blind people. According to the latest census, they number 2,100, and most are unable to provide for themselves or their family. Because of this high proportion of impoverished blind citizens, ADRA Vietnam developed a program called the Revolving Cow Bank, which places the care of the herd in the hands of the community. With training, the blind citizens of Tay Ninh have proven to be adept at caring for their herd of 123 cattle, including delivering calves, which are eventually given to other local vulnerable families with disabilities.
Our Capacity Statement further highlights the projects, programs, and people of ADRA Vietnam.
Country OverviewVietnam is in the midst of a dramatic transition period as it advances out of low-level developing country status with one of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia. Despite this progression, 17.2 percent live on less than $1.25 per day and have limited access to basic necessities, including education and health services. Climate change is especially detrimental in Vietnam, as the potential for disaster increases.
