CapacityVietnam is an international partnering organization increasing awareness of mental health issues, improving community inclusion and supporting recovery.
Our mission is to create a vibrant community of social enterprises successfully contributing toward inclusive communities. We believe community-based social enterprises will support the holistic wellbeing of those recovering from mental health and substance abuse challenges leading to independence and dignity through building resilience, capacity and vocational skills. By operating effectively in contexts characterized by adversity and severe resource limitations, economic and social inequities can be addressed and lives and communities changed.
CapacityVietnam was incorporated on June 3, 2018, with seed capital from the four owners and One Day Funding as well as several individual donors. Our desire is to transform the world of mental health in Vietnam by seeing all people challenged by mental health or addiction issues as, human beings, and not a diagnosis. The trainees of CapacityVietnam’s social enterprises will benefit from vocational and skills acquisition, equal employment opportunities and placement, or, assistance to start their own small businesses.
CapacityVietnam’s enterprises will become self sustaining businesses, creating supportive environments, enhancing recovery and well being, while engendering dignity encouraging independence.
