Journalists to Write Stories of Change

Hagar, established in 1994, is a specialist trauma-informed care agency that works primarily with women and children suffering from trauma as a result of human trafficking, slavery and abuse. Hagar International in Vietnam (henceforth Hagar Vietnam) was launched in 2009 in response to the growing magnitude of human trafficking and exploitation in Vietnam and evidenced needs of survivors.  Today Hagar implements programs in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Singapore, and Vietnam; and through partners in Myanmar and the Solomon Islands.

In 2021, Hagar Vietnam reached more than 1,309,522 people directly and indirectly through our five 2020-2022 strategic goals: Heal, Prevent, Partner, Empower, and Influence.

Hagar Vietnam responds to the needs of vulnerable women and children to receive multi-sectoral trauma-informed support and social services to heal and recover. We build awareness of families and local authorities on the impact trauma has upon survivors, and survivor-friendly strategies to prevent re-traumatization. Aligned to our strategic goals, our key activities include;

  • Heal: The Whole Journey project, which provides multisector support and access to social services for survivors.
  • Prevention: We work through local authorities to build community knowledge about rights, national legislation, and the need to protect vulnerable women and children from human exploitation, violence, and abuse.
  • Partner: We scale up the impact of our work, by building the capacity of partners, including the Vietnamese Government’s Women Union and like-minded agencies, to deliver Hagar’s specialized model of trauma-informed care in their own work.
  • Empower: We seek to build the leadership skills of survivors, and facilitate opportunities for them to increase their voice and agency at community, national and international levels.
  • Influence: Field experiences evidence advocacy and influencing efforts, to strengthen national legislation and implementation standards, whenever we can.
