Social Care & Culture Promotion
Social care has been a cornerstone of KIBV’s activities. KIBV works hard to raise attention and support from local and interntional community to join hands and help underprivileged people in minority and rural areas of Vietnam.
KIBV office has become a collection point to receive donated clothes, food etc. Since the program started, many local people have come to offer their help and contributed the success of KIBV’s activities. Collecting clothes also reflects our environmental efforts as we try to extend the life-cycle of clothes whilst at the same time bringing people in need meaningful presents.
Since its inception, KIBV has been organizing charity events in some poor villages of Vietnam on the occasions of international children’s day, mid-autumn festival and other events at orphanages and disability centres. Volunteers of KIBV try to raise funds among the community by making recycled crafts. With a low budget but a big heart, KIBV and its volunteers try to make a difference in Vietnam – one school, one cleanup and one village at a time.
Culture promotion has becoming one of the missions of KIBV in an effort to restore, preserve and promote the cultural values of Vietnam.One of KIBV’s recent project is to preserve and promote the tradtional weaving villages in Mai Chau,Hoa Binh, Vietnam. The project aims to help women in these minority villages to gain expertised skills in not only weaving but also to get a deep knowledge and practice of sustainable production concept so they could improve their competitive advantages and livelihood.
