Phu Nu 

Improving the access to rights for migrants workers in Vietnam

For 20 years, Vietnam has experienced a significant economic growth, especially in industrial zones, at the expense of agricultural development. A lot of people living in the countryside, mostly women, don’t have any other choice than going to big cities in order to find a job and provide for their families’ needs. Working in big factories most of the time, those women became migrants in their own country because they are not registered with local authorities of the province they work in.

With our local partners, we decided to support migrant women workers in the industrial zones of Vinh Phuc and Hai Duong (around Hanoi). They are a very vulnerable group, and they either lack access to, or know about, their own rights.

From these observations, the Phu Nu project initiates a dialogue between different stakeholders (migrant women workers, unions, landlords, companies, local authorities…), so the migrants can improve their working and living conditions. Women’s clubs were created so that women could inform each other about their social and economic rights. Furthermore, local authorities and companies participate in awareness-raising meetings in order to ensure those changes will last.

13'Sâges

Taking care together of elderly migrant people

With age, people’s needs change. Despite a large panel of home care services, the elderly don’t really know how to ask for it, or don’t even know that this type of services is available. Therefore, this demographic can have some difficulties to access their rights. In addition to those problems, migrant seniors can also have specific issues because of their migrant status.

One the other hand, some organisations acting in the Ile-de-France region have trouble promoting their actions alongside old migrant people and/or supporting them in an appropriate way. It is in that sense that we coordinate and run a network of local organisations in order to increase their visibility and foment concerted action.

Thanks to the 13’Sâges project, those organisations work together and implement activities made for migrant old people (information and awareness-raising sessions about access to rights, cooking and digital workshops, French classes…). In order to help the organisations working with elderly migrants, we provide intercultural trainings, brainstorming and sharing workshops…
