Catalyst Foundation is a NGO aiming to equip families, in Vietnam, with the tools to get out of poverty and to raise awareness of human trafficking at the grassroots level in order to strengthen community protective mechanisms. Community-education workshops are delivered to Catalyst’s target communities to build core life skills like decision making and problem solving, and to raise awareness of child trafficking, and household financial literacy. Catalyst scholarships enable children to enroll in school and receive an education. Vocational trainings are conferred to community members for the purpose of providing skills to earn a sufficient living for families. Trainees move from trainings to apprenticeship, and ultimately receive microloans to develop small businesses. Their group of dedicated staff and volunteers carry out Catalyst’s daily mission to provide assistance to needy children and their families.
