SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

Marketing Training for Class 10 & 11

To promote creative thinking in marketing, a competition was organised with a Victorinox pocket knife as a prize. Each candidate had one minute to promote the Unique Selling Point of their product/service.

Production Optimization Technical Support

Eight  visits to companies were conducted last month with activities including training on 5S and Production Optimization for workers, maintenance of the written internal management system, and Swiss Create Award Round 1, as well as discussing solutions for the detected issues.

Mr. Mario and Mr. Gallus, Swiss Create consulting experts, visited three businesses who participated in Swiss Create Award 2015 to evaluate their maintenance and improvement after the audits.

Mr. Thang, the director of Viet Thang Packaging Company, shared, "Joining the SMEs program pushed us to give priority to innovation in order to be competitive when Vietnam integrates into international competition."

Family Business Workshops

This training equipped 429 community leaders in Hoai Duc with knowledge on business practices and mindset so they can share the knowledge throughout their communities to improve household's opportunities for increased income generation.

"NEW RURAL DEVELOPMENT" PROJECT IN VAN CON

Dr. Phan Quoc Viet and his co-workers inspired 170 key leaders to develop self-leadership skills and an optimistic outlook to seize opportunities in the ever changing conditions and achieve the goals of the "New Countryside Rural Development" program.

Loan Disbursement and Household Visits

Last month 50 new beneficiaries received loans. Household visits were conducted to advise beneficiaries on loan management and how to improve their income. They saw great benefit from the project and have been trying to put skills they learnt in practice.

PROJECT ACTIVITIES IN BAC GIANG

 Cow Bank Project in Bao Son

Training on Cow Raising
More than 120 farmers participated in the training. Basic knowledge relating to cows care was introduced and cow bank project and loan disbursement procedures were shared. Many questions from the local people were answered.

Assessing households registering to join cow bank project
According to criteria set out, 07/22 households were invited to join the cow-bank project in Ho Son 1 and Quat Son. Commitments between parties were implemented to ensure the effectiveness of the activity.

Supporting Schools in Bao Son

Preschool teacher training survey
Last month we surveyed preschool teachers in Bao Son on training topics needed. The survey showed their lack of current knowledge and skills in communication with children and parents, and in toy making. Ten days of training will be arranged.

New libraries
Recently schools in Bao Son have been encouraging children to read regularly. But lack of high-quality books on a wide range of topics has limited the effectiveness of this effort. We discussed ways to improve the situation by updating school libraries.The books you see in these shelves are all text books

BIOGAS IN BA VI

We visited some households who received project loans for building biogas digesters to see the result. In general, beneficiaries all are using the loans effectively as planned. There are still many households who want to join the project.

Mrs. Bui Thi Tham's family raises 12 cows and 46 pigs. They borrowed money from project to build a biogas digester in 2008. Now, because of an increase in the number of cattle they are raising, they want to have a project loan to build one more digester to solve pollution problems negatively affecting their neighbors.

COMMUNITY-BASED CARE FOR CHILDREN IN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES

Van Hoa Renovation

The second bedroom building and the study room's roof were done in the last week of August. The construction team is now completing the inside of these buildings.

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE

Periodically we visit disabled children who are in difficult circumstances the communities where we are working.  We try to help improve the quality of life of these children through support with medical treatment, education assistance or what ever else we can do to help the family.  We visited the two children above this month and were pleased with how the support they are receiving is helping them.
