75 percent of Vietnam’s 54 ethnic minorities live in the country’s northern mountain and central highlands regions. (source)
Despite economic expansion, ethnic minority poverty across Vietnam remains high. Malnutrition amongst ethnic minority children is a serious issue: 1 in 5 are found to be underweight and 1 in 3 ethnic minority children suffer from stunted growth. (source)
CRY support the Health, Education & Skills project in Vietnam. This project works across the mountain villages in North West Vietnam and serves over 100 children from ethnic minorities. Through CRY’s support, they are able to provide regular meals to the children and provide them with resources including School uniforms, books and stationery to improve their access to education.
They also provide vocational courses to over forty young people free of charge, to help them enter employment.
CRY’s heart is to build a better future for marginalised children across Vietnam and help them reach their full potential. Please join us in our mission and give life today.
