"We’re grateful to Care for Children because your experience and expertise had a great impact on our new childcare law, defining very clearly the principles for alternative care. The main challenge is that few families are willing to care for children who are not related to them. They also don’t know about the legal support and provision available. The partnership between CfC and Vietnam government can help find solutions to these problems "
Mme. Hoa
Project Overview

Following a successful National Foster Carer Conference in Hanoi in 2014 the Vietnamese government exclusively invited Care for Children to partner with them to help implement foster care in local communities, beginning with two pilots in Hanoi and Thai Nguyen respectively.

It is estimated that there are currently 22,000 children in over 300 government-run/monitored institutions across Vietnam.

In 2018, Care for Children’s training programme began, with the first two workshops taking place in December 2018. It is hoped that the first children from Social Protection Centres (orphanages) will be placed into families in 2019. The national foster care project (stage 2) is due to begin in 2020.
