Vietnam is a country with great opportunities. This is why our focus is on disadvantaged youth, who are likely to miss out on these opportunities because they have to overcome challenges that most do not have.

Our graduates, who have reached out for their own future, have demonstrated great courage and determination. Through hard work, they are turning their lives around. Meet some of our inspiring students and read their stories below.

REACH courses are designed exclusively for street and migrant youth, school dropouts, unemployed secondary school graduates and resettlement community members.

We find our students through our mobilization campaigns.

In the months before a new course starts, our staff run a recruitment drive, via local organizations like the Youth Union, contacts such as the commune leaders in areas where our students are likely to live, and places young people frequent such as markets and bus stations.

We work closely with other NGOs who support our target group. Our students talk to their friends and neighbors – word of mouth is a great recommendation., and our Alumni also get involved.

Together we make sure that young people learn about our program and sign up.
