At the meeting, the leaders of CRD introduced about its activities and achievements throughout 20 years as well as the development strategies of the Centre.
Mr. Hue said: “CRD is actually a prestigious, competent and experienced organization. We have seen that the fields of activities CRD has been implementing could be a basis to reach desired objectives on child rights. Therefore, this meeting is an opportunity to find out a sustainable partner for a very potential project that out organization is building on the scale of 03 regions – the North, the Central, and the South.”

This is an opportunity for CRD to help the children in the Central protect their rights and for other Civil Society Organizations to enhance their capacity, which is both a responsibility and a challenge.”
