Over the past two decades, Vietnam has experienced extraordinary economic growth, with 30 million people being lifted out of poverty.

Yet in rural and remote areas, millions more are yet to escape the poverty cycle. Isolated by geography, language and culture, ethnic minorities are especially affected.

Despite making up less than 15 per cent of the population, today they account for nearly 50 per cent of the poor.

Meanwhile, in urban areas, migrant women working in the informal economy, female garment workers and female sex workers are among those most marginalised from the country's development.

We’re working closely with some of Vietnam’s most vulnerable – women from remote ethnic communities and urban socially marginalised people – to help provide tools for sustainable change. 

We put women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

CARE International in Vietnam

Hơn một phần ba quốc gia không có luật cấm quấy rối ở nơi làm việc (và rộng hơn là ở các không gian liên quan đến công việc).

Ở Việt Nam, các cơ quan liên quan đang sửa đổi Bộ Luật Lao động để giúp người lao động có được môi trường an toàn hơn, và CARE đang đồng hành cùng những nỗ lực tuyệt vời ấy.

In Vietnam, relevant agencies are working to revise the Labour Code in a way that provides safer working environments. CARE is proud to be part of this journey.

Thank you Australia In Vietnam, Investing In Women for supporting us!
