Help seven schools in Vietnam

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Since 1966 The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been working within countries of need, so that they can individually become sustainable and the livings of those populating these countries are improved. Today the UNDP is aiding 177 countries and territories providing understandings to help lives and develop resilient nations.

An intention that the UNDP share, are the ‘Millennium Development Goals’ which achieved by 2015 would see:

  • An eradication of extreme poverty and hunger
  • Achievement of universal primary education
  • Promotion of gender equality
  • Deduction of infant mortality
  • Improvement of maternal health
  • Combating HIV/Aids, Malaria and other diseases
  • Assurance of  environmental sustainability
  • Development of global partnerships for development.

The UNDP teaches these countries how to use aid effectively so they can become sustainable. The UNDP has many ongoing projects, in countries like Gaza, South Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Zambia, Indonesia, Haiti and Mali. A large proportion of these projects are focused on health especially relating to HIV/ Aids where their goal is to fight it globally, give aid quicker and strengthen hospitals. Other projects are based within the police force, fighting poverty, aiding refugees, improving transport and working with Law and Order to help prevent corruption.

This is a mission that is also shared with Worldcoo with the fundamental end goals of helping people’s lives, through educating about diseases, health, gender equality and basic human rights.

Like the UNDP, Worldcoo has been investing time into many projects like Agronomic Engineering in Diffa, Niger, where they aim to build a fence around the crop area to protect from animals during the harvest, which will be a benefit to many who are malnourished. Other projects are based in Vietnam, Senegal, Gambia and Nicaragua where there is an intention to improve sanitary conditions, aiding territories to become economically advanced and educational developments within schools.

The UNDP and other like-minded charities have a considerable task ahead of them to achieve the ‘Millennium Development Goals’, however seeing the achievements of the UNDP over the last 47 years the following two years are sure to be extremely productive.

Help seven schools in Vietnam

Today, the Vietnam faces the premature death of 14.000 children each year. Due to that, poor sanitation and hygiene conditions. Then, Vietnam is fighting to bad conditions of water.

This Worldcoo project is located in the district of Mu Chang Chai (see map), where more than 70% of households, public centers and schools don’t have latrines. Moreover, the inhabitants of that region are strongly attached to their cultural roots, which means that even with appropriate services they prefer to keep their poor hygiene practice.

Therefore, the NGO Codespa started to plan a project which aims to train, study, develop and systemize the hygiene in 7 schools. That will directly benefit to 2.500 children. The budget includes operations of studies and technical work, development tools, training to local partners, and construction of sanitations. Then, 10% is dedicated to the coordination of the project.

So far, they need 15.000€ to concretize the project. Help them to make it happen by donating to the project and spread the word.
