Vietnam is one of the last communism countries in the world which is negatively impacted by dictation leadership. Economic is going down, environment totally destroyed and more importantly our next generation are losing their pathway to be balance and confidence in living their own way.

Education is the best way to help the government control people’s mind set. Luckily, internet help us look out of the window and curious about the world. Most of parent are now distrusting public education and trying to find their way to send their kids study oversea. However, they just either don’t know how or can’t effort with financial requirement.

Here we use informal education to somehow finding our way to change the situation, helping our next generation mastering their life in a rapidly evolving world.

We are looking for any volunteers who are flounce English and enthusiasm, understanding and willing to share to join English teaching program.

o Each session consists of 90 minutes of activity as details:
