VVOB started working in Vietnam in 1992 and since 2008 has channeled all its focus and efforts in the education sector and on early childhood education since 2014.
About the current early education programme
From 2017 to 2021, VVOB Vietnam is working on an early education programme financed by Belgium in close cooperation with the Departments of Education and Training (DOETs) of Quang Nam, Quang Ngai and Kon Tum provinces in Central Vietnam. The programme aims at improving the quality of teaching and learning of all 3-5 year-old children in preschools. More specifically, it focuses on enhancing the knowledge and skills of the DOETs to strengthen the capacities of preschool teachers and school leaders to mitigate children’s barriers to learning and participation (eg: barriers related to gender, environment, culture, language,…) for better participation and well-being. VVOB supports targeted disadvantaged and ethnically diverse districts to enhance their needs-based and school-based in-service teacher professional development towards processed oriented child monitoring and reflective learning communities in preschools.
