Project Description

This project will target a community of over 1’000 single mothers in Vietnam which enables women to be free from stigma, abuse and shame. The project exists to share sessions from a range of experts (psychologist, economist, business expert) on the following topics over 2 months to help them survive and thrive:

  • Understand and control psychological issues such as stress and panic during the lockdown.
  • Understand the forecasted economic and behavioural effects of the pandemic, how Vietnam and the world is going to change after Covid and how to transform this into opportunity.
  • Learn about the opportunity to create micro/digital businesses to generate income during/after Covid.

 

Anyone who has attended the initial training sessions and has a business idea can join a 2 month online training program to learn more about starting their own business and those who are then keen to develop a business plan will be matched with a business mentor to help them work through this process. Mums who have written business plans will then be asked to present these to inspire others in the 1,000 strong community. Five women will be offered $500USD each to use as start-up capital for their business. They’ll be judged on whether the business has potential to scale up, the leadership skills demonstrated and the leader’s willingness and potential to hire other single mothers to work in their business.

Expected Outcomes

  • Increased education on topics such as psychological issues and coping mechanisms, affects of the pandemic and business skills
  • Exposure to business learning and mentoring
  • Opportunity for business funding
  • Improved mental health and coping strategies
  • Preparedness for a post covid world
  • Opportunity for extended business mentorship
  • Increased confidence, self esteem
  • Opportunity for economic empowerment
  • Strengthening of existing community ties and relationships

Project Data & Lessons

Our project leader Hong is on the ground in Vietnam and has successfully run and grown her community and their offering over the last 4 years. She will be managing this project on the ground and working closely with all the stakeholders to ensure its success. We have funded a number of projects for Hong, and some are now self sustaining, therefore we have full trust in her organisation's capacity to undertake this project. Hong will document the project and 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 visit the women and see how the businesses have developed. 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.
