Hanoi (VNA) – A project was officially launched in Hanoi on December 10 with the aim of promoting parenting to Vietnamese, as well as all-round development of local children.  

The opening ceremony for the “Holistic parenting scale-up project” was co-organised by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Vietnam, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA), the Human Safety Net Foundation of Generali Group and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).

The project has been rolled out on a trial basis in 27 communes of Gia Lai, Dien Bien and Kon Tum provinces, and a number of factories in and around Ho Chi Minh City since 2019.

The Human Safety Net Foundation committed to providing more than 1 million EUR (1.12 million USD) for the project in 15 cities and provinces, and 40 enterprises during the 2021-2024 period.

The project, therefore, is expected to benefit tens of thousands of parents and children, and millions of others through digital platforms.

Apart from the financial support, the foundation also planned to aid the project in other forms regularly.

UNICEF Representative in Vietnam Rana Flowers and MoLISA Deputy Minister Nguyen Thi Ha shared the view on the important role of parents to children’s development, and the need to equip them with parenting skills./.
