Our Work in Education
According to the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, there are 16.5 million students aged 5-17 as of September 2018, however, approximately 3% of them have never been to school and about 40% drop out before the age of 17. Poverty and insecure livelihoods in families are major factors that impact children’s schooling (UNICEF, 2016). In addition to that, youth unemployment is a growing issue with nearly 7% of those aged 15-24 unable to find decent jobs. The capacity gap is one of the main causes.
Since our establishment, our foundation believes that virtuous and talented students are key to a nation’s development and therefore are continuously committed to fostering the young generation especially disadvantaged youth facing different difficult circumstances through innovative projects and programs. Our aim is for children to be better equipped for their future, but more importantly, for them to understand their own social and environmental responsibilities and take initiative and action.
We don’t want just an opportunity to run a company but rather, we as social entrepreneurs want to change the world.
