CARE’s Urban Program works with a number of urban groups across Vietnam, who are structurally and socially excluded from the benefits of change and development.
We put women at the heart of our work with groups such as sex workers, female migrants, and female factory workers. They often live and work in unsafe environments, and are subject to stigma, discrimination, exploitation and abuse. Many are effectively “hidden” populations, marginalised as a result of social conventions and stereotypes, or because of a lack of responsive legal and policy frameworks.
