Aide et Action is an international non-profit working in 19 countries around the world supporting the development of sustainable education projects. Headquartered in Europe, we have been implementing projects globally for almost 40 years.
We have been working in Southeast Asia since 2003, first in Cambodia and later in Vietnam, Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), China and Myanmar. Since 2008, we also have a fundraising office in Hong Kong. Our teams in these Asian countries work closely together and have formed Aide et Action Southeast Asia, with a regional office based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Currently, our projects span Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam.
Our vision: Changing the world through education.
Aide et Action ensures 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.
Dignity: We believe education helps to build an individual’s capacity enabling them to live with dignity. We always value and respect every person for their own sake and treat them ethically.
Inclusion: Our belief in all humans having equal rights is unshakable. By lifting barriers to inclusion from education we help others exercise their rights. Our workplace is inclusive and does not discriminate in any way.
Integrity: Collective and personal integrity are all-important to us and help guide all decisions and initiatives we take. We strive to be honest, fair and ethical in everything we do, and live by our values.
Solidarity: We stand united around the notion of education for all as a way to stand and act together with the communities and supporters we work with. Our commitment is always visible in whatever we do, both as individuals and as an organization.
Transparency and Accountability: Transparency is ensuring openness to all our stakeholders with respect to our policies, programmes and finances. We are accountable to our participants, supporters and donors to use both our financial and human resources in the best possible way.
