Nouvelle Planète Vietnam (NPV) is the team that coordinates all activities undertaken in the country and organizes them autonomously. NPV monitors all projects in collaboration with the local partners in each area of intervention. The team is composed of three people that are based in Ho Chi Minh City, the economic hub of Southern Vietnam.
All projects have to fit into the framework of the 3-year Strategic Plan and must be approved by the authorities. Aiming at the highest relevance possible of the projects, the needs of the population of each of the most marginalized villages of a district are assessed in a survey. These discussions with the villagers allow NPV to detect the needs and identify the best method of development. There are currently four operational zones:
- Mekong Delta: Trà Vinh, Vĩnh Long and Hậu Giang provinces
- Central Highlands: Kon Tum province
Nouvelle Planète supports projects mainly in the field of child education, environment, promotion of clean energy technologies, support of ethnic minorities, road safety and health.
