From August to December 2021, 7 SOS villages in Vietnam have pioneered to practice and gain practical values from "Child Safety at Home" project. This project was reported by Lam Dong news channel.

"Child Safety at Home" is a project focusing on raising awareness in childhood injuries prevention, with the participation of SOS Children's Villages Vietnam, the Center for Health Improvement Research (CHIR), and ASIF Foundation.

The project's main purpose is to progressively transform the mindset and perception of child safety among parents, caregivers, schools and communities. Throughout the project, seminars and talk shows are held, along with maintaining community group relationships and providing the necessary medical equipment.

Furthermore, the project builds a community where there is coordination among members of SOS Children's Village.
