About us

AOP in Vietnam is the representative office of Action on Poverty in Hanoi, Vietnam. We proudly registered as the first Australian NGO in Vietnam in 1996.

From building sustainable livelihoods to fostering good governance, AOP in Vietnam has been working for over 20 years with local partners to combat poverty and inequality.

A message from our Country Director

Xin chào!

Vietnam has made remarkable strides in development in recent decades. But the fight isn’t over yet. Poverty remains a stark reality for over 12 million people in Vietnam. Another 10 million hover just above the poverty line.

AOP in Vietnam is dedicated to bringing people out of the injustice of living in poverty. We apply a community-based approach in our work -- meaning we work directly with the local people in open dialogue to understand their lives and how we can best help.

But this isn’t a mission we can do alone. Our work wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of people like you.

Let’s take Action on Poverty, together.

Ta Van Tuan

Country Director of AOP in Vietnam

In 2016, AOP in Vietnam empowered over 6,000 men, women, and children to create better futures for themselves.
