Protecting the Vulnerable Children of Vietnam

Millions of children in Vietnam face many challenges preventing them from realizing their full potential in life. The Vietnam Ministry of Labor estimates over 4.2 million children under the age  of 16 — nearly 18 percent of all Vietnamese children — are either  orphans, abandoned, disabled, victims of toxic substances, infected with HIV/AIDS, sexually abused, exploited and/or in conflict with the law. These children are also victims of human trafficking and kidnapping. These problems are intensified by the absence of a strong and effective child protection system.

UNICEF's Next Generation has adopted a fundraising goal of $100,000 to support UNICEF in partnership with the Vietnamese Government to establish a child-friendly justice system for vulnerable children.  The Next Gen Vietnam Project will support the creation of a comprehensive legal framework for children and adolescents in need, improve  access to justice  for child victims and witnesses of crimes, and help to provide due process and proper alternatives to children involved in criminal activities.  Please help Next Gen reach their goal and support the children of Vietnam.

What your donation could provide:

  • Your gift of $500 will support 33 community workers who will provide community- based education and reintegration services to 330 vulnerable children who are victims of crime and in conflict with the law.
  • Your gift of $1,000 will support 2 two-week training sessions for local police officers on child-friendly investigation techniques.
  • Your gift of $5,000 will support 335 community workers to serve 3,350 vulnerable children by providing community-based education and reintegration services for children who are victims and in conflict with the law.

Use this form to make a secure, tax-deductible donation to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, supporting UNICEF's Vietnam Project: $50, $500, $1,000, $5,000, or any amount you can give will help save and protect the lives of countless children.
