National dissemination for the parenting content of The Human Safety net in Vietnam

The national parenting e-learning course supported by the Government and UNICEF features 18 videos of The Human Safety Net Vietnam's "Sinh Con, Sinh Cha" project

The national parenting e-learning course has been developed by a group of top-notch IECD experts in Viet Nam, and consists of 20 lessons, in which 18 "Sinh Con, Sinh Cha" (Born Children, Born Parents) videos are featured. It targets parents and caregivers of children aged 0-8 years old with creative visual aids illustrating parenting situations and challenges. 

This achievement represents a positive outcome of private-public partnerships resulting from The Human Safety Net activities to enhance an ecosystem for early childhood development in Vietnam, working with the Ministery of Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), UNICEF and the National Fund For Vietnamese Children.

These lessons include caretaking of children's physical and mental health, stimulating exercises through play and encouragement, developing children's cognitive ability, responding to their behavioural challenges, and protecting them from violence and abuse, among others. Through this online course, parents and caregivers will find valuable and up-to-date knowledge and skill-building resources for their children's upbringing. More importantly, parents will know how to adequately express love and care to their children to feel loved, safe, and enjoy mental and psychosocial well-being that helps them reach their fullest potential.

"Promoting early childhood development and supporting Vietnamese families is key for us. Parenting is an important 'full-time job', yet not every parent is fully conscious that such job requires learning and training to best benefit our children. Sinh Con, Sinh Cha has found a smart and effective approach to deliver and promote parenting knowledge and skills to parents via interesting online educational videos with practical and useful content. We're pleased to be able to contribute content and video clips from our programme to such e-learning courses by UNICEF and MOLISA. We hope this necessary parenting course will be able to reach millions of families across the country." said Tina Nguyen, CEO of Generali Vietnam.
