Promotion of education for poor migrant children in urban areas
Migration from rural to urban areas is becoming a challenge in big cities. One of the essential needs of migrant families is their children's study. Due to financial and bureaucratic barriers, the children of immigrants face many difficulties, especially those from modest backgrounds.
Caritas Vietnam, together with the Caritas diocese of Saigon and Phu Cuong and some shelters in the area, have cooperated to support educational opportunities for migrant children. Thanks to the help of several partners, the project has contributed to providing opportunities for these disadvantaged students to pursue their education.
The immediate goal of this project is to increase literacy among poor migrant children in in Ho Chi Minh and Binh Duong. The long-term goal is to help them to complete their studies and thereby contribute to improving their living conditions.
The project is aimed at children of migrants with extremely difficult circumstances, who cannot access education in formal schools in urban areas in Ho Chi Minh and Binh Duong.
