Vietnam

Country Profile

Located in the northern hemisphere, Vietnam is a country home to a diverse crowd of 98 million residents.The Asian country borders Laos, Cambodia, and China whilst lying alongside the Pacific Ocean and South China Sea. The water makes Vietnam a land full of otherworldly landscapes including beaches alongside emerald seas, rolling hills, and grand mountains. The humid climate ranges from 70-95°F, however, this warm climate still yields snowfall in the North, while all regions see monsoons from May to October. The conditions make the country ideal for farming rice, sugarcane, and a variety of nuts, primarily cashews (that have contributed to a $2.4 billion revenue in 2015). Vietnamese culture is heavily based on the importance of family and working as a unit rather than focusing on individuality. The most commonly practiced religions in the country are no specific affiliation/Folk Beliefs, Buddhism, and Catholicism.

Our Efforts

Problems Observed

In Vietnam, about 2 million children are orphans, putting them at a major disadvantage in regards to education. While underprivileged children are put at a disadvantage in regards to education, women, especially those who work are as well. Younger, uneducated women are at a high risk for being forced into child marriages in more rural areas.
