Doan Thanh Tung, who is a YVC member form Vietnam was part of the “My Future, My Choice” launching event which was on 30th September , 2015 at the GEM center, Ho Chi Minh City. The Campaign will lead MSM community to practice safe sex and make healthy choices for future and launch a contest via facebook to find more exemplars from community, empower them to change for future. Tung has been an active YVC member since 2012. His passion and leadership helps him to work with many local and international organisations. He is now working for FHI and PATH VietNam.
The launching event was very successful with the participations of government officials, private sector and many local CBOs in Ho Chi Minh City introducing their own community projects, celebrities and MSM community in Ho Chi Minh City. Campaign’s approach is to connect community and magnifying exemplars via social media, mass media and offline activities, especially via Facebook as key channels for MSM community to access information and involve with campaign.
The first facebook channel of the campaign functions under the name “Rainbow village” – which will act as a friendly place for community to make friends, sharing information as well as a hub to spread information and update on coming activities.
