  • Description


    Our organization was established in Nghia Lo town, Yen Bai province - a small town in the northwest of Vietnam.
    This is a beautiful, peaceful valley with three main ethnic groups living: Kinh, Thai and Hmong.

    Our town is in a development period, but the children here have not had the opportunity to interact and develop much with foreign languages - a problem that most of the small provinces in Vietnam are encountering. Therefore, our center was established with the desire to build a real foreign language environment and provide a suitable English learning method for children here, helping them to improve their English language skills and knowledge so that they may be afforded better opportunities in life and work in the future.
