NGHỆ AN — More than 700 parents, children and teachers were provided useful knowledge on child health, behaviors and intelligence at a workshop in Vinh, Nghệ An Province on September 26.

The event was part of an education programme entitled “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” (Born Children, Born Parents), that is jointly implemented by Generali Vietnam and the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC).

The workshop facilitated discussion on three practical and useful parenting topics: handling minor child illnesses and tips for boosting their immune system, setting a good example for children, and giving children regular encouragement and motivation.

Participants also focused discussion on topics within the program’s three main content pillars of the intelligence, behavior and health of children aged zero to six years old.

At the event, Generali Vietnam representatives handed over 320 gift sets to participating children, 320 programme booklets to their parents and caregivers, as well as 30 special cash gift sets to 30 local families in extreme hardship.

“Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” is part of “The Human Safety Net”, a Generali Group’s global movement initiated in 2017. The Human Safety Net’s programme supports parents in the first six years of their children’s lives to lay the strongest possible foundations for their future, contributing to early childhood development (ECD) in disadvantaged communities around the world.

In Việt Nam, the local programme is developed by the NFVC and Generali Vietnam, referencing UNICEF’s materials. The programme aims to offer parents with children aged zero to six years old parenting knowledge, experience and skills to help children grow to their full potential in the love of the family and the community. — VNS
