AIP Foundation, along with 28 other foreign NGOs, was honored by the Committee for Foreign NGO Affairs (COMINGO) for their contributions to reducing poverty and promoting sustainable development in Vietnam during the 2014-2018 period, receiving a Certificate of Merit of the Chairman of COMINGO. 

AIP Foundation received the distinction at the 4th International Conference on Vietnam – Foreign NGOs Cooperation, which brought together 800 representatives from the government and public sector to assess the cooperation between Vietnam and foreign non-governmental organizations between 2014-2019, as well as discuss upcoming priorities for future cooperation in 2020-2025. 

The two-day conference featured six seminars focusing on partnerships between Vietnam and foreign NGOs in several prioritized areas, namely education and training; health care; cooperation between foreign businesses and NGOs for sustainable development; the settlement of social issues and war consequences; the environment, climate change response, natural disaster prevention and mitigation, and emergency rescue; along with poverty elimination and socio-economic development. 

AIP Foundation has been promoting life-saving road safety education in Vietnam since its inception in 1999, and continues to implement safety education and awareness-raising programs that will benefit Vietnamese society.
