Dear Members and Friends:

Welcome to the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre Newsletter for 15 – 31 March 2019.

Action on Poverty (AOP), previously known as The Australian Foundation for the Peoples of Asia and the Pacific (AFAP), is celebrating its 30 years of working in Vietnam this month. AOP in Vietnam would like to take this opportunity to send our thanks to all supporters for taking part in the fight against poverty in Vietnam.

Began to work with poor and vulnerable communities in Vietnam in 1989, AFAP became the first Australian non-governmental organisation to open its Representative Office in Vietnam in 1996. From building sustainable livelihoods to fostering good governance, AFAP in Vietnam worked closely with local partners to combat poverty and inequality. The new name Action on Poverty (AOP) in Vietnam has been adopted since April 2018 with a renewed mission: to empower local changemakers to break the cycle of poverty in their communities.

Warm greetings from the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre's Team!
