The CHAD Vietnam project, now in its third year, is working to improve the region’s hygiene environment, with a focus on installing sanitary toilet facilities and strengthening self-reliant and sustainable community development in the 2022 fiscal year. They are also raising pigs and chickens locally, and are working together to address problems such as livestock death due to illness.
Newly introduced threshing machine
In the project area, they purchased a rice threshing and milling machine, which saves time and money by eliminating the need to travel 5 kilometers to the town and allows them to make the most of the rice. The machine has also made it easier to obtain clean rice, as it was previously covered in dust. Additionally, they use rice husks and bran as livestock feed.
Women who received training through the CHAD project have become more interested in food safety and are taking an active role in this area. They are now growing fresh vegetables in the community, not only ensuring safe rice, chicken, and pork but also making fresh vegetables readily available.
Furthermore, the community’s cooperative system has been strengthened. The village’s narrow and inconvenient pathways, which were used by many people, were expanded by the community members’ cooperation, making everyday life more convenient.
In addition, the cooperation of the community has increased. Since the road that was connected to the village was too narrow and inconvenient, community members came together to widen the road to make daily life easier.
Mr. Dong's story
Dong and his family, who were struggling financially, were unable to install a clean toilet despite wanting to. With the support of the CHAD project, Dong’s family made the courageous decision to install a toilet. When the toilet was installed, the children stopped using the neighboring field as a toilet, and the sanitation situation improved.
