Habitat Vietnam commits its support to the National Target on Rural Development

Through housing support, Habitat Vietnam has contributed to the efforts of Thap Muoi District to be recognized as the first NTM district (Nong Thon Moi- the National Target Program on New Rural Development) of Dong Thap province after nine years of implementing this program.

Thap Muoi is one of the poorest districts in Dong Thap Province and is considered highly vulnerable to disasters, particularly flooding and salinization. As of 2018, nearly 10% of the district’s population is classified as poor and near-poor households. They have limited awareness and knowledge of water and sanitation (WASH). People were using pond toilets without any concern for the environment, dignity, or safety while using it.

Our district has 12/12 communes (100%) recognized with NTM standards, finishing one year earlier than planned. We are thankful for Habitat Vietnam’s continuous partnership over the past five years to create a remarkable change to the rural appearance of Thap Muoi today. People have safe houses to stay in, children can go to school without concern about clean water and sanitation condition. We are also improving the social-economic situation thanks to the newly built road which helps people transport easier and connects communities with communities. Habitat Vietnam’s critical support not only helped us in improving the infrastructure for people but also play a role in eradicating poverty among the most vulnerable communities,” Tran Thi Cam Van, Chairwoman of Vietnam Women’s Union said.

After 5 years of project implementation, Thap Muoi district has partnered with Habitat Vietnam to build 35 houses for poor households; 2 water filtration systems for two secondary schools; and a new road. More than 500 international volunteers hosted by Habitat Vietnam also helped their hands in the construction of houses. Over 5,800 people participated in training courses and communication events relating to clean water, sanitation, safe housing, climate change, and construction skills.

Rural development is one of the focuses in Habitat Vietnam’s program, aligning with the Vietnamese government’s National Target. Over 65% of the Vietnamese population is living in rural areas; but with the limited knowledge and resources on safe housing and proper sanitation practices, a number of people are still struggling in their daily life in the cycle of poverty. I am happy to know that our projects’ impact has supported the vulnerable communities in Thap Muoi district to thrive. We look forwards to deepening the partnership with more local partners in the future for bigger impacts on rural development,” said Mrs. Bells Regino-Borja, National Director of Habitat for Humanity Vietnam.

*Nong Thon Moi is intended to support the more than 9,000 communes across the 63 provinces of Vietnam to upgrade services and infrastructure in their communities, raise their incomes and productivity, and reduce the still significant socio-economic disparities between rural and urban areas in Vietnam. The National Target Program on New Rural Development, launched in 2010, sets 19 criteria relating to poverty, education, health, transport, water supply, irrigation, livelihoods, agricultural production, markets, culture, energy, environmental issues, communication, and security.

 

 

The flower of hope

Thanh and his mother standing in front of their house and orchid garden

At the end of the new cement road at Binh Hanh Trung Commune is a beautiful garden of blossoming orchids. Thanh, 30, standing with a pair of crutches shares about the experience of growing this kind of flower: “Orchids need high humidity and airflow around the roots and avoid heavy watering.”

Ten years ago, an accident on the construction site badly damaged Thanh’s legs. Growing up in poor living conditions, Thanh was an exuberant person and always tried to work dedicatedly to support his family. But the sudden accident took away his zest for life. “He was just 20 at that time and bedridden. The dampness in the house was also not a good condition for my son’s recovery. He seemed to have no motivation to practice for treatment. Gloominess befell us,” Mang, 55, Thanh’s mother recalled with tears in her eyes.

Every day, Thanh stayed in their decaying house made of moldy wood, dried leaves, and old canvas while Mang was outside on the muddy road trying to earn a living on every lottery ticket. One day, Thanh’s friends brought him an orchid flowerpot, which rekindled his spark of life. Thanh gradually could move around with the support of equipment and planted the orchid garden by himself. But delivery was a significant hindrance to his business because the only way to his house was a damaged road that Thanh simply could not ride his three-wheel bike.

In 2021, a new 1,200-meter-long road was built in Hamlet 1, Binh Hang Trung Commune with the support of the project “Empowering resilience communities through housing community-driven PASSA”. PASSA (Participatory approach Safe Shelter Awareness) is a tool that strengthens both the “software” (knowledge and skills within the community) and the “hardware” (physical improvement of housing and infrastructure). It is a powerful approach to employ when working towards increased community resilience through promoting community involvement in decision-making and management of disaster preparedness. The road was the decision of the people in the village when identifying the important infrastructure for them in disaster risk management and livelihoods improvement. Situation on low-lying land, Hamlet 1 often gets flooded during the rainy season, so the road serves as an evacuation road for 50 families in this family to move to safer places. And for the disadvantaged like Thanh, the road not only helps his business develop but more importantly connects him with his community again.

Furthermore, Mang is also an active member of the PASSA group in Hamlet 1. “Having taken part in the training, I gained knowledge on climate change and safe housing” Mang shared, “Since the training, I cannot stop thinking of how fragile and dangerous my house is. So I took loans from the Vietnam Bank for Social Policies to repair my house safer. Now I’m also convincing my sister to fix their house for her family’s own good.”

About the project: The two-year project “Empowering resilience communities through housing community-driven PASSA”, funded by DFAT through Habitat Australia, aims to develop approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) which foster community involvement in decision-making and management of disaster preparedness, and improve housing conditions for the most vulnerable populations in Quang Nam and Dong Thap provinces.

Habitat Vietnam honored with Merit Award from Vietnamese Government for Outstanding Performance two years in a row

On December 21, 2021, Habitat for Humanity Vietnam (Habitat Vietnam) was named among the 49 out of almost 500 international non-government organizations (INGOs) for their outstanding contributions to the country in 2021. This is the fourth time Habitat Vietnam has received recognition since starting its operations in the country following the one in 2020.

The conference was held in Hanoi hosting both face-to-face and online participation and was attended by more delegates, including government agencies, ministries, INGOs operating in Vietnam and civil society organizations.

The awarding is conducted annually by the Vietnamese Government through Committee for Foreign Non-governmental Organization Affairs (COMINGO), for significant contributions to Vietnam’s sustainable development goals. The criteria for selection of this year’s awardees include the effectiveness of programs/projects, disbursement value, compliance with Vietnamese laws, cooperation with Vietnamese partners and activeness in supporting the prevention and control of COVID-19.

 

The Awarding ceremony led by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs H.E. To Anh Dung.

Speaking at the closing of the conference, Deputy Foreign Minister To Anh Dung highly appreciated the efforts and compassion of NGOs to support Vietnam in overcoming great difficulties and the challenges in 2021 especially among low-income and vulnerable populations. At the same time, the deputy minister also thanked the significant contributions of INGOs to the sustainable development goals of Vietnam. H.E. Dung affirmed that Vietnam wished to continue to partner with NGOs in the coming time and pledged that COMINGO and Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) will continue standing side by side to effectively facilitate the operations of INGOs in Vietnam.

Bells Regino-Borja, National Director of Habitat Vietnam said: “We are honored that Habitat Vietnam’s program transformation and efforts of making positive impacts on Vietnam’s socio-economic development is, once again, recognized. We share this recognition with our partners in the community.  We are motivated to strive towards our aim of continuously strengthening our depth and reach of working with the most vulnerable groups as a trusted partner for development in Vietnam.”

LG Electronics continues partnership with Habitat for Humanity Vietnam in support of Muong ethnic people

  • LE Electronics donated $60,000 in aid to Habitat for Humanity Vietnam through Habitat for Humanity Korea to continue the project “Life’s Good: Hope Villages”.
  • Nearly 22,000 community members in Hoa Binh province, Vietnam, will be served over a 10-month project. 

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam – December 17, 2021 – The “Hope Villages” funded by LG Electronics (LG) through Habitat Korea is back the second year to continue improving the living conditions of the Muong-ethnic community in Lac Son district, Hoa Binh province. Last year, the “Hope Villages” served over 11,000 individuals through housing, water and sanitation improvement, and capacity building on gender equality and finance management.

Muong ethnic community is among the poorest community in the country, experiencing a radical gap in development. Equality in homeownership is a powerful tool for building wealth for vulnerable Muong families and setting up future generations for success. With deep understanding, relevance, and respect of the Muong community’s local cultures and living settings, “Life’s Good: Hope Villages” seeks to empower ethnic families with the means they need to build a better future.

The project this year aims to support 22 ethnic minority families to enhance their quality of life and health condition through housing improvement. A communal house will also be renovated to benefit the whole community of Quyet Thang commune with nearly 16,500 people. The improved communal house will serve multiple purposes such as community events, development training, and emergency shelter for evacuation when disasters occur, with appropriated sanitation facilities and 2,500 school children and teachers through school libraries and awareness-raising events.

“We are grateful for LG Electronics’ continued commitment and support to Habitat Vietnam to ensure no one is left behind,” said Bells Regino-Borja, National Director of Habitat for Humanity Vietnam. “By integrating gender equality and climate change mitigation in the project, we empower the vulnerable people, especially ethnic minority women, to take the lead in building stability and development for themselves, their families and the community. Better educational resources through two smart libraries in the commune also encourage ethnic minority children to enjoy learning more.”

“As a global company that operates in more than 100 countries worldwide, LG is committed to promoting mutual growth with local communities. In Vietnam, LG has been devoted to social contribution activities that create sustainable development for the past 25 years, and Hope Village serves as an excellent example,” said Sung Woo Nam, Managing Director of LG Electronics Vietnam. “Through our advanced products and technology, LG’s key mission is bringing more value to our customers, and at the same time, continue joining forces with Habitat for Humanity to support initiatives aiming at creating the values needed by the society. Because we believe ‘Life’s Good’ and that everyone deserves to enjoy a good life.”

SAFE AND INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY EVACUATION HOUSE

The latrine design for the PWDs is applied such as anti-slip tiles on the floor, and with the moderate gradient, and good drainage system to ensure that the floor is always dry, the handrails are used to aid PWDs and ensure their safety when using their toilet.

Located in the lowland of Quang Nam province, Tam Dan commune is visited by typhoons and floods four to eight times annually. This community house (Nhà văn hóa thôn) is the safest place in the area for people to evacuate. There are up to 100 people that call this community house their temporary home during typhoon seasons every year. Most of them are older people and children. “Our existing latrine in the community house does not have enough capacity for all evacuees,” says Ho Van Tri, the Tam Dan commune People’s Committee chairman.
During the two-year project, funded by DFAT through Habitat for Humanity Australia, the Tam Dan commune gained stronger and increased knowledge on disaster and climate change mitigation. Through PASSA group facilitation, the community decided to build a new adequate latrine in the community house as part of their defined plan and priorities for disaster preparedness. This plan received the attention of the local authority and, together with Habitat Vietnam, the PASSA groups and the community, successfully mobilized funding contribution from the government. The newly built latrine ensures people’s hygiene and sanitation conditions that will temporarily stay here during disasters. The latrine is designed to be accessible for everyone, including persons with disabilities, children, the elderly and those who are sick. “This October, 37 people stayed in this community house due to high flooding in the commune. The people who evacuated felt safe and happy seeing this new latrine. I observed that the older people could manage to go to the toilet by themselves without help from others,” Tri shared.

Building Back Safer Schools in Quang Ngai province

Habitat for Humanity Vietnam completed a four-month project to recover and improve education facilities in Quang Ngai province post-disaster. Nearly 900 school children and teachers are served with funding support from GE Foundation. Being a coastal province in central Vietnam, Quang Ngai is vulnerable to natural disasters, with hundreds of unroofed schools and houses during the 2020 typhoon season.

In collaboration with Binh Son Department of Education and Training and school management boards, Habitat Vietnam renovated 10 classrooms with new typhoon-resilient roofs and electricity system establishment, provision of fans and lights in Binh Nguyen primary and Binh Thanh 2 primary schools. A new latrine is also built-in Binh Thanh 2 primary school with disability-accessible features and a hand-washing facility. With this support, students and teachers of two primary schools will have access to a better learning facility and improve their hygiene and sanitation practices.

The principal of Binh Thanh 2 primary school, To Van Duan, shared, “We are very thankful for the project’s support. With the new facilities, we feel more confident and safer during typhoon season, and school children’s academic performance is no longer disrupted. The new latrine also creates a more hygienic and sanitation environment for children’s education; especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, teachers can educate students on proper hygiene practices with the handwashing facility. ”

Deputy Head of Binh Son Department of Education and Training, Tran Thi Phuong Linh, said, “I am pleased that Habitat Vietnam and GE Foundation cooperated with local authorities in the recovery effort after typhoons to help students and teachers soon stabilize their learning environment. The school becomes not only a safe shelter for students but also an evacuation site for the community in disasters. This support not only helps students and teachers have a comfortable environment for their study but also increases the capacity of public facilities to receive more evacuees, thus enhancing the disaster preparedness of the community.”

“Having this support in place is a great step forward in strengthening community disaster preparedness capacity,” said Bells Regino-Borja, National Director of Habitat for Humanity Vietnam. “I am grateful that Habitat Vietnam has been able to partner with GE Foundation, the local authorities, and schools in ensuring the best education environment for children and build community resilience to disasters.”
