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.
