Project Description

For the conservative Co Tu ethnic group in Danang, Vietnam, getting pregnant while unmarried is considered so shameful that expectant single mothers are often ousted from their families and villages and left to look after themselves. In such a hostile environment, it’s sadly not uncommon for single teenage girls to hide their pregnancy and deliver their babies alone and in secret. The consequences of this for both mother and baby can be dire. This important project will provide two sets of workshops on sexual and reproductive health and family planning workshops, over a year, to 70 Co Tu women and girls who are single and pregnant. Participants will learn how to protect themselves and stay healthy during and after pregnancy, and that they don’t have to be ashamed of their circumstances. The girls will be connected with a network of caring, knowledgeable women, and will have access to counselling and support services.

Expected Outcomes

The expected project outcomes are as follows:

  • Increased education for Co Tu community of women
  • Reduced health risk to pregnant mothers and babies
  • Increased support system for women and children
  • Reduction of stigma and shame around pregnancy
  • Opportunity for women to gain independence and success
  • A safer environment for women and their families
  • Access to counselling, support and family planning

Project Data & Lessons

Our project leader Hong is in Vietnam working within the community currently and will continue to do so with the funding. We have worked with Hong on a number of other projects including providing trauma therapy and micro-finance to women in Vietnam. She has shown herself to be capable to run a program of this nature successfully and she is very passionate about the cause. Hong will provide photo, video and anecdotal evidence of project activities and implementation, as well as receipts and budget breakdown on expenditure. When Just Peoples is able to visit Vietnam again after Covid restrictions ease, we'll be able to meet the women who were involved in this project. We'll provide regular updates to donors on the impact they have made, as part of our commitment to all Just Peoples supporters.

About Just Peoples Ltd

We believe in a world without poverty. Where people have the power to solve their own problems, their own way.We don’t believe that foreign intervention is the key to solving poverty. We believe that real, sustainable change comes about when people are given the resources to lift their own communities out of poverty. We tackle global poverty by supporting grassroots leaders to design and deliver locally appropriate solutions to the challenges their communities face. Just Peoples currently has 16 Project Leaders from across Africa, Asia and Mexico who are bringing to life a wide-range of projects based on delivering health, education, technological, gender-based and economic outcomes for people living in poverty. Our Project Leaders are effective because they have a deep understanding of the local context of poverty in peoples’ lives, and have established respected relationships in their communities. Their insight and expertise make them the best people to understand problems, and implement lasting changes that work. So far we have delivered 100 grassroots projects globally, impacting the lives of over 85,000 people living in 13 countries around the world.
