Vietnam: Virtual visit as completion (VIDEO)
Our project in Vietnam was recently completed but unfortunately we were unable to visit it ourselves. Instead, we were invited for a virtual visit. In this video you can see fragments of it so that you can get an impression of the impact of this project on the lives of school children and adults in disadvantaged areas of Vietnam.
During the virtual visit we were also informed about the planned expansion of the project based on the remaining funds. Indeed, we managed to connect two more villages. A large number of households are now also connected on the basis of the subsidy we were able to provide to reduce connection costs. All in all a very successful project as far as we are concerned!
Clean drinking water for minorities
In October 2019 we started this project together with World Vision Vietnam. It focuses on the municipality of Dien Quang in the district of Ba Thuoc. This municipality is mainly inhabited by the Muong – a minority group in Vietnam – who are not seen as a priority by the government.
The project will run from October 2019 to March 2021 and aims to provide 3,572 people with clean drinking water and thereby improve their health and quality of life.
