Reporting on cases and activities can help the Community Volunteers and others provide services more effectively. It can also help the Community Volunteer advocacy groups be more informed and efficient through documenting the challenges and lessons learned.

Citizens are equally entitled to the same rights and obligations without discrimination based on gender, religion, or wealth.

Though women and men are equal under Vietnam’s laws, women often are denied their rights in practice. This is especially true regarding their rights around property and land, which are very much tied to culture and custom. This module teaches CVGEAs about human rights, property and land rights, as well as what the law of Vietnam says about women’s and men’s equality. It creates space for safe discussion and exploration of participants’ own views on gender equality and the relationship of culture to women’s rights.

Both documents have Vietnamese versions available as well.
