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.

MOBIL’Hanoi

Promoting his/her savoir-faire thanks to international mobility

Nowadays, finding a job is real challenge, and even more so in some fields. Job hunting is even more complicated for young people without diplomas or with any significant work experience.

In partnership with the Ile-de-France Regional Council, we launched in 2002 the MOBIL’Hanoï program. It gives job applicants from the Ile-de-France region the opportunity to complete a 6 month placement within a Vietnamese company. An intercultural environment allows job applicants to develop professional and personal abilities, very much appreciated by recruiters.

Before the trainees’ departure, we provided them with a one month language and intercultural training. Then, we ensured personal follow-up all along their stay thanks to our local branch in Hanoi.

The MOBIL’Hanoi program ended in April 2016, since the return of the eleventh session of trainees. We hope to re-launch again this kind of mobility program soon, and continue offering other unemployed people a true professional opportunity !
