"In partnership we can make a difference"

Vietnam - Bright Solutions

Established in 2009, Bright Solutions Vietnam is designed to develop employment and business skills and to train vulnerable women in handcraft and general work skills in order to break through the poverty cycle.

How does this work? A management consultancy business makes contacts and generates income for the two other business divisions. The handcrafts division trains women with limited employment opportunities in handcrafts and general work skills. Micro finance projects help these women move forward by setting them up in business so they can make an income for themselves.

Bright Solutions makes exquisite, intricate and bright handcrafts. Made with fabrics unique to Vietnam, butterfly mobiles, clever activity books and cute toys and decorations are made with great attention to detail and quality in an atmosphere of hope and affirmation – a sharp contrast to the prior experiences of the women. Bright Solutions products are marketed in Australia through GMP.

Since commencing, opportunities have opened for employment in home help and handicrafts.  Training has also been given in the area of financial independence and basic computer skills.  The focus on skills learnt and how to develop suitable work options for low-skill workers has led to expanding craft options.

Bright Solutions is always looking for people business skills to assist in their training school.  Contact GMP now if you would like to be involved in this way.
