For nearly 50 years, AOP has successfully worked with local partners to implement cost-effective development programs in 20 countries across Africa, Asia and the Pacific.

AFAP Vietnam is the representative office of AOP. AFAP Vietnam has been working with poor communities in 9 provinces across the country since 1989 and became registered in Vietnam in 1996. Our program focuses on improving health, income generation, good governance, social monitoring, food security and resilience to the effects of climate change. AFAP has developed a solid reputation as a principled, innovative, and pioneering NGO working with a wide spectrum of stakeholders ranging from policy makers and local authorities to civil society organisations (CSOs) and vulnerable communities.
