Women’s Union – Vietnam

The Vietnam Women’s Union is one of the most important partners in MCNV development programs in Vietnam, at all levels. The Women’s Union’s strength is its very committed and skillful staff and their extensive network with members from national to community level.

In partnership with MCNV programs, Women’s Union partners play an active and leading role in women’s empowerment, working on building capacity, ensuring gender equity, protecting the rights of women and children, and promoting the social and economic inclusion of women and children in the development process. The Women’s Union collaborates with the health and education sectors to implement comprehensive programs in effective cooperation with MCNV.

MCNV highly appreciates the dedication and contributions of the Vietnam Women’s Union at national level, and in the provinces of Cao Bang, Thai Nguyen, Ha Giang, Dien Bien, Yen Bai, Quang Ninh, Ha Noi, Quang Tri, Dak Lak, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa and Ben Tre. We work together to implement microfinance and livelihood activities and other social empowerment strategies for our selected marginalised groups, including women and children affected by poverty, disability, HIV/AIDS, malnutrition, and other types of social exclusion.
