Mission of Children of Vietnam
Changing the lives of impoverished, homeless and handicapped children in Vietnam by addressing the root causes of poverty for vulnerable populations including impoverished single mothers with dependent children.
EFWC is a special initiative to promote income sustainability for struggling single mothers. Together Women Rise will supports 200 women and 12,000 girls through EFWC that will work to develop personal empowerment plans to lift families out of poverty through training, microloans, healthcare and improved housing.
Why We Love This Project
This is a powerful program with an individual approach as these women face a myriad of barriers that trap them in poverty. It requires a multi-faceted effort to confront the causes of poverty as a single solution often fails. EFWC will work collaboratively with each woman to develop an empowerment plan by assessing needs, identifying strengths and defining personal goals. Ultimate GOAL: for each mother to be in charge of her future and to earn a stable income that sustains the family.
