YWAM Mercy Vietnam empowers communities to address poverty through specific, sustainable, community based development projects. We work in three districts located in the capitol city of Hanoi and nearby Bac Giang Province. Vietnam is a country of over 90 million people and the 14th largest in the world. It is undergoing rapid change and since 1986 it has moved from being one of the poorest, with a per capita income of US $100 per year, to a middle-income country, with per capita income of around US$2100 at the end of 2015. The benefits are unevenly spread, however, with many remaining pockets of poverty and farmers increasingly unable to rely on subsistence agriculture for their income.
YWAM Mercy Vietnam believes everyone deserves opportunity. Visit our website at ywammercyvietnam.org to learn more about how since 1998 we have been helping local communities to provide more opportunity to their people so they can thrive.
