Description: We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. To achieve this goal, we focus on two areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education. We work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond. According to the World Bank, 22% of Vietnam’s population currently lives below the poverty line, an economic reality that coupled with a long history of warfare has contributed to poor infrastructure development. In the 1980's, the country’s one-party government introduced a series of reforms aimed at improving the economy and living standards. The Doi Moi (renovation), as it’s called, has made great advances since then—specifically in the areas of growing private enterprise, attracting foreign investment and transforming the country into an industrialized nation. In the cities, a young middle class is eager to become engaged in trade with the rest of the world, but despite all efforts made to expand opportunities nearly two-thirds of the Vietnamese population still works as field laborers.
