What We Can Offer
World Vision is a Christian relief and development organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. As a child-focused organization, WV’s work focuses on children, ensuring they are protected and their basic needs are met. World Vision International in Vietnam (WVI Vietnam) has a total income of USD 17.9 million (FY2020) with funding from 12 support countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Funding of WVI Vietnam consists of Sponsorship program funding (70%) and Private Non-Sponsorship/Grants (30%). WVI Vietnam employs about 430 staff, of which 99% are Vietnamese nationals.
WVI Vietnam currently implements 36 Area Programmes (APs) which operate in 5 zones: North 1 (Hoa Binh and Dien Bien), North 2 (Yen Bai and Tuyen Quang), North 3 (Thanh Hoa and Hai Phong), Centre (Quang Tri, Quang Nam and Danang) and South (Quang Ngai, Binh Thuan, Ho Chi Minh and DakNong). WVI Vietnam’s Area Programs focus within one administrative district of a province which usually populated by ethnic minority people with very high rates of poverty. A uniqueness of WVI Vietnam’s AP approach and structure is that team members are based at district level where the Area Program (AP) is located, which enables them to work closely with government partners and communities on a daily basis. Beside the APs, WVI Vietnam is also implementing different non private sponsorship (PNS) and Grant Projects to meet the specific needs of vulnerable children in both AP and non-AP areas.
Over 70% of the Vietnamese population now has access to the internet. As of June 2021, 9.2% of Facebook users and 18.5% of Youtube users are children aged 13-17. Children use the internet from an early age but do not have enough knowledge and skills to protect themselves from the risk of being sexually abused via chat rooms, live streams, web cameras and smartphones.
WVI Vietnam is developing a project to help Vietnamese children to learn, entertain and grow in safe online and offline environments, with the tentative timeline from January 2022 to December 2024. The project and the positions required to deliver the project will commence upon confirmed funding from the donor.
