AFAP Vietnam: Communications and Marketing Intern - Community-based Tourism (CBT) Project
The Australian Foundation for the Peoples of Asia and the Pacific Limited (AFAP), now known internationally as “Action on Poverty”, is a secular, not-for-profit, fully accredited Australian non-government organisation (NGO) that was founded in 1968. As its new brand “Action on Poverty” suggests, its mission is to be a leading agent for poverty alleviation through innovative, cost-effective and appropriate community-based development. AFAP has successfully worked with local partners to implement development programs in 21 countries across Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
In 1996, AFAP was the first Australian NGO to be formally registered to work in Vietnam. Since then, it has partnered with local government, civil society organisations, and vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in 24 provinces, to implement projects within a range of program areas including: livelihoods and food security; climate change and environment; governance and institutional strengthening; health, water and sanitation; and education and social inclusion.
Since 2014, AFAP has implemented the Community-based Tourism (CBT) Project in Da Bac District, Hoa Binh Province to develop new business opportunities and tourism activities that encourage an equitable distribution of profits and provide a sustainable income for ethnic minority groups. More information about the project is available on its website at http://dabaccbt.com.
