The Uniterra program (2015-2020), jointly implemented by WUSC and CECI, with financial support from the Government of Canada through Global Affairs of Canada (GAC), was ended on 31st March 2020.
During the last five years, WUSC and CECI received 262 volunteers in Vietnam who worked closely with our partners. Volunteers organized training workshops to provide capacity building for partners staff and members, developed tools and training materials, and supported pilot interventions. Our volunteers demonstrated passion and commitment in their contributions to improving lives. Our volunteers also received tremendous support from our partners, not only in their work but also in their personal lives, helping them to learn more about Vietnam, its people and culture. This support in volunteer integration helped volunteers adapt, live well and work successfully throughout their mandates. Our volunteers and partners have contributed largely to making the Uniterra program a success. We thank all volunteers and partners for their dedication and support over these last five years.
Thank you to all WUSC and CECI staff for their dedication in helping us successfully implement the program in Vietnam.
Thank you also to Global Affairs of Canada for their ongoing support throughout this program.
