Contributions of Heifer Viet Nam towards communities recognized by local authorities

            On April 22-23, 2011, Heifer Viet Nam was honored to receive merit certificate for its continuing and significant endeavors to needy communities in Long An and Kien Giang province. In Long An province, there have been six community development projects implemented and their impacts are thriving widely. As a province with high rate of poor population, Kien Giang is one of provinces where Heifer Viet Nam stays its focus to assist impoverished households. So far, Heifer Viet Nam has funded nearly US $200,000 (appr. VND 3 billion) including one new project (#22-0775-29) totaling approximately US $ 110,000.00 of which Heifer Viet Nam project partner – The Agricultural Extension Centre of Kien Giang contributed 30% to the project.

          Furthermore, on April 26, Heifer Viet Nam, at the INGOs meeting held by Hochiminh Union of Friendship Organization (HUFO), Ms. Dang Thi Doan Trang, Country Director represented Heifer Viet Nam, receiving the merit certificate granted by HUFO for its tremendous contribution towards poverty ending, income generation and community development. Heifer Viet Nam is in partnership with Hochiminh Farmer Union to operate the project “Improving family income for farmers in Southeastern region through integrated animal production” (#22-0775-12-001), providing physical inputs and trainings for 120 households of Binh Loi, Phuoc Hiep village and Long Phuoc ward.

          The merit certificates are valuable awards recognizing endless efforts of INGOs in general and of Heifer Viet Nam in particular, in order to empower disadvantaged communities in the fight against poverty and hunger.
