|Title:||Viet Nam - Midori, UN Messenger of Peace visits Tuyen Quang - Dec 2018|
19 December 2018, Dinh village, My commune, Chiem Hoa district, Tuyen Quang. Villagers in traditional dress gather to listen to a performance by world-renowned violinist and UN Messenger of Peace, Midori. She travelled to rural Viet Nam to meet with and perform for villagers in remote and poverty-stricken communities where projects supported by IFAD have been working to improve conditions. Local musicians also performed for the audience.
As part of her annual outreach tour, Midori and three young musicians visited ethnic minority communities in Tuyen Quang province and perform for local audiences. While there, Midori met with rural women to learn more about the challenges they face, which include extreme poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition, and the impact the IFAD-supported project has had on their lives.
IFAD, together with the Government of Viet Nam, has recently completed the Agriculture, Farmers and Rural Areas Support Project in the Tuyen Quang, Ninh, Thuan and Gia Lai Provinces.
