Today, LIFE Centre in collaboration with BSR organized the Supplier Workshop in HCMC Vietnam. This workshop was an opportunity for HERproject implementing factories and supporting buyers (brands) to exchange experience, challenges as well as solutions during the program implementation and how to sustain the program initiatives with the trained factory team.
A few days ago, at a Deckers brands’ Supplier Workshop in Hai Phong, the LIFE team also had two presentations on various efforts that LIFE has been implementing in the Worker Support Program including HERproject, Worker Wellbeing and Worker App initiatives.
Since 2008, LIFE has implemented HERproject in 25 provinces/cities in Vietnam, trained 4,280 peer health educators who have subsequently disseminated reproductive health care information to 279,000 workers (mostly women) in 109 factories throughout Vietnam. HERproject is implemented in 13 countries with support from more than 50 international and multi-national brand companies.
