PARTICIPATION

SRD recognizes that children constitute a vulnerable group and we are therefore committed to protecting this group. We ensure that our projects are empowering children while promoting their safety and livelihoods. We believe children are not only the direct beneficiaries, but are also important participants that should be encouraged to have a voice about the future.

We initiated our Child Protection Policy in 2013 and have continued to implement this policy internally and externally in order to ensure any child who may be involved in, or affected by, our work is protected.

 

Some of our impacts:

-In the 2017 Children's forum, children were able to voice their concerns about issues that are affecting their safety and development.

 

-Children with disabilities received regular support in education and rehabilitation through peer-to-peer learning sessions, regular health check-ups, and rehabilitation activities.

 

-School-based clubs and groups for children have been supported with child-led activities focusing on topics such as environmental protection, violence against children, and the harmful effects of pesticides on agriculture and health.

 

Women and Girls

EQUITY

Women in Vietnam, particularly single women-headed households in rural communities, are historically disadvantaged and continue to face obstacles such as poverty, limited employment opportunities, and discrimination. At SRD, gender equality and women's empowerment is one of our major focus areas, and we strive to support inclusive and equitable community development.

 

Some of our impacts:

-Implemented 15 Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) clubs, involving 400 poor women, in two project communes in Tinh Gia District, Thanh Hoa Province.

 

-Farmer groups were established in Quang Nam and Thai Nguyen Provinces, with a 50% female membership, providing opportunities for women to participate in decision making at the commune and village level

 

People with Disabilities

INCLUSIVITY

Over 6 million people in Vietnam live with a disability, with majority living in rural areas. Very few of these individuals have stable jobs and income, and many are living in poverty. At SRD, our goal is to improve the living conditions of people with disabilities (PwDs) by continuously supporting and empowering them, while strengthening their voices in their community, socially, economically, and politically.

 

Some of our impacts:

-Supported PwDs clubs in 5 project communes, where the groups participated in activities such as: capacity building sessions, awareness raising activities on the rights of PwDs, exchange visits, and study tours.

 

-Worked with government agencies and local authorities to officially establish the Association of PwDs at the commune and district level, in order to provide a legal foundation for the operation of PwDs
