Aide et Action in Southeast Asia & China
Vision: Changing the world through education.
Our mission is to ensure access to quality education for the most vulnerable and marginalised populations, especially children, so they can take charge of their own development and contribute to a more peaceful and sustainable world.
In 2019, Aide et Action supported 1,911,194 people globally of which 60,591 were in Cambodia, China, Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), and Vietnam.
Our projects are focused on three key areas:
Early Childhood Care & EducationBy improving the knowledge and practices of those working in early childhood care and education, we are giving children aged 3-8 years old more opportunities to thrive inside the classroom and at home.
Access and Quality of EducationBy addressing the barriers that marginalised populations face in accessing education - such as disability, poverty, geographic remoteness and more - we are increasing the number of children enrolled in school and improving access to education for all.
Lifelong Learning and Vocational TrainingBy identifying skill gaps and training marginalised groups with the vocational and entrepreneurial skills needed in today’s job markets, we are increasing economic opportunities for those that have been previously excluded and building more resilient livelihoods.
