Empowerment Initiative for Vietnamese Women Seeks to Provide Financial Stability

Rise Against Hunger and Children of Vietnam (CoV), have been partners in eradicating poverty in Central Vietnam for 10 years. Rise Against Hunger and CoV will scale up their work in 2017 to break the cycle of poverty for children and families by assisting single mothers to improve their incomes through a new program called Empowerment through Enterprise (EtE). The EtE program will train the women on business and financial literacy skills, including writing a business plan that will then be funded with a small grant.
