COHED & Networking

Trang chủ » Our work » COHED & Networking

Networking continues to be of increasing importance to organizations seeking to operate with greater efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability. COHED highly values opportunities to collaborate and network with local NGOs, INGOs and the larger international community both within and outside Vietnam.

Over the last decade,
COHED has successfully entered and maintained several long-term partnerships
with many Government Institutions throughout the country. The nature of the relationship
between COHED and its targeted beneficiaries is two-way, allowing for mutual
understanding, effective capacity building and empowerment.
