This was the first Sinh Con, Sinh Cha workshop after the social distancing period, benefiting more than 500 parents, children, teachers, and staff of Rang Dong and Anh Dao kindergartens, Tam Ky city, Quang Nam province.

The Sinh Con, Sinh Cha workshop in Quang Nam facilitated discussion on three important parenting topics attracting public attention in recent times: protecting children against physical and psychological abuses, handling children’s tantrum behaviours, and early education for children about money.

Merited artist and goodwill ambassador of the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC) Xuan Bac volunteered as the workshop’s facilitator. Discussed topics at the workshop focused on the programme’s three main content pillars of intelligence, behaviour, and health of children from newborns to six years old.

At the event, Generali Vietnam handed 250 gift sets to all participating children, 250 programme booklets to their parents and caregivers, as well as 30 special in-cash and in-kind gift sets to 30 local families.

“After the prolonged pandemic, we are very happy to get Sinh Con, Sinh Cha back on the road, reaching out and supporting many more families across the country,” said Tina Nguyen, CEO at Generali Vietnam. “The help from both national and local governments as well as the wholehearted participation of parents, kindergarten teachers, and staff greatly motivates us to forge on and further expand the programme’s positive impacts.”

Le Tuyet Mai, deputy director of the NFVC, said the Sinh Con, Sinh Cha workshop in Quang Nam marks the comeback of the local event series to be organised in various provinces and cities across Vietnam, which will positively contribute to the protection, care, education, and comprehensive development of Vietnamese children.

As a community education programme with innovations in content and formats, Sinh Con, Sinh Cha has benefited more than 3,200 parents, children, kindergarten teachers, and staff via local workshops organised across Vietnam.

Generali has accelerated the digitalisation of Sinh Con, Sinh Cha’s content and activities, continuously exploring new formats such as online workshops with psychological experts and podcast series with the programme’s paediatrician.

Sinh Con, Sinh Cha has supported the disadvantaged communities with various initiatives including the recent Ngay Mai Cho Em programme delivering Lunar New Year gifts and financial support to 500 underprivileged children who lost their parents to COVID-19.

In December, the Generali Group pledged over $1.06 million in support for UNICEF’s Integrated Early Childhood Development Holistic Parenting project and contributed parenting materials and other content from Sinh Con, Sinh Cha to this important project.

With its positive contribution to Vietnamese children’s comprehensive development, Sinh Con, Sinh Cha has quickly become one of the core programmes of The Human Safety Net, Generali Group’s global community initiative.
