(VOV) - About 24,000 children are expected to benefit from projects and activities to be implemented by the Vietnam Association for the Protection of Children’s Rights (VAPCR).
VAPCR Chairwoman Tran Thi Thanh Thanh told participants at a conference in Hanoi on February 22 that, to realize the objective, it is essential to increase the capability of officials and staff in all VAPCR agencies and to strengthen cooperation among organizations in Vietnam and abroad to mobilize resources in support of children.
Since its establishment four years ago, the VAPCR has called for assistance from international organizations to help children enjoy their fundamental rights.
The association has launched many charitable programs and provided consultation services to help ensure children’s rights. Last year, it mobilized VND9.5 billion to support 20,000 needy children nationwide.
