Estimated Start Date: April 2021

Closing Date: 5:00 PM, March 25, 2021

Background

In cooperation with British Council and World Vision International Viet Nam as well as central and provincial Vietnamese government partners, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) – UN Migration Angecy in Viet Nam is implementing a project entitled “Tackling Modern Slavery from Viet Nam: An interagency programme for behaviour change, access to justice and reintegration support” funded by the United Kingdom’s Home Office.

This project tackles modern slavery from Viet Nam through harnessing the capacities of IOM, World Vision and British Council, Government Partners and Stakeholders to implement a coordinated series of interventions that specifically align with existing work in Viet Nam and United Kingdom’s Official Development Assistance requirements.

On the basis of IOM research, the project targets five key target provinces: Nghe An (Yen Thanh; Dien Chau districts); Hai Phong city (Hai Phong city; Thuy Nguyen district); Quang Binh: (Đong Hoi city; Bo Trach district); Ha Tinh (Can Loc; Nghi Xuan districts); and Quang Ninh (Ha Long city).

Under the prevention component the project aims at preventing vulnerable populations from becoming victims by reducing vulnerability to modern slavery through changing behaviours and attitudes and promoting alternative employment opportunities for specific vulnerable groups at risks of trafficking.

The project interventions target vulnerable Vietnamese individuals (between 15 to 35 years of age) who plan to migrate overseas within identified communes experiencing high outward migration of the aforementioned tageted provinces. Apart from a series of activities to raise awareness and promote alternative livelihood opportunities for the targeted groups, IOM will implement a Pilot Career Consultation Day model aimed students of local high schools and vocational training institutions to test its effectiveness and explore the potentiality and possibility to replicate the model in the future.
