Company/Organization to Provide Parenting Skill Training for Vulnerable Women

1.  Introduction

MCNV is a Dutch NGO working with Vietnam since 1968. In 2004, MCNV started a program that focused on providing comprehensive care and support for women living with HIV/AIDS and their children.

By the end of 2012, the program supported more than 2000 women and 1000 children infected and  affected  by  HIV  in  seven  provinces  in  the  North  of  Vietnam  (Hanoi,  Quang  Ninh,  Thai Nguyen, Ha Giang, Yen Bai, Dien Bien and Cao Bang) to receive health care as well as livelihood, socio?psychological, and legal support. 

The  program  helped  to  empower  the  women  by  establishing  a  network  of  self?help  groups called  the Sunflowers, where women  living with HIV can gather and share their experiences  in living with HIV, and  learn more about prevention and  care. Through  these developments,  the children should also receive better care from parents and families. 

On  the  request of  these women,  and  to provide  further  support  for  the women  and  children affected by HIV/AIDS, MCNV plans  to provide  training workshops on parenting  for mothers  in the Sunflower groups. The training  is expected to provide mothers who are  living with HIV the knowledge and skills to understand their children, to support them in their daily lives as well as when specific trauma might occur.
