Project Officer

WVV Grant Project Officer in Charge (temporary)

BACKGROUND:

Nearly half the Vietnamese population now has access to the internet. In Da Nang City there are approximately 233,800 children under 16 years old (accounting 19.3% city population). There are 140,000 from 220,000 households are registered to the internet service providers. In a survey by WVI in 2017, almost 60 percent of children in primary school and 90 percent in high school have a Facebook account. Moreover, there are nearly 900 internet or online game shops attracting thousands of children every day.

Children use the internet from an early age but do not have enough knowledge and skills to protect themselves from the risk of being sexually abused via chat rooms, live streams, web cameras and smartphones. The issue is aggravated by a lack of cooperation between relevant departments, ineffective reporting mechanisms and child sexual abuse is still considered a taboo in community as well as the knowledge on online safety is still lacking.

Based on the above, in 2018 World Vision International in Vietnam commenced the “Tackling Online Child Sexual Exploitation Project” with the aim of “protecting children and adolescents from online sexual abuse/exploitation”. The project is funded by the Fund to End Violence against Children.

 

PURPOSE OF POSITION:

The position is responsible for implementing and managing the grant project “Tackling the Online Child Sexual Exploitation in Da Nang-Vietnam”, which aims at preventing online child sexual exploitation and supporting child victims in three target districts: Son Tra, Hai Chau, and Cam Le of Da Nang City.
