Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Summary 2019 Our project will provide a Test preparation course program and scholarship to rule and urban students of Vietnam. We are a 100% volunteer organization working with TCC High School Completion Program where international students can receive their WA State high school diploma and their associate degree at the same time. In this way students can come to TCC at age 16 or 17 and then saving time and money.

Volunteer teaching is perhaps the most popular and varied of all volunteer projects abroad. From helping with ESL conversation classes and running math and science courses to teaching computer skills and other adult education courses, volunteer teaching abroad is far broader than just teaching English to children. So whether you're a freshly minted TEFL graduate or have no experience at all with teaching, a mid-career professional with an in demand skill, or a retiree with years of teaching experience, finding a volunteer teaching program abroad could be just the way to interact and experience a new culture while helping to improve education. We are not a training center. We are a Private Foundation, licensed and certified in California USA and our schools here in Vietnam can offer a variety of different programs and activities.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Challenge Despite considerable economic progress in Vietnam in the last couple of decades poverty is still a problem in rural and even urban areas. Students in rural areas do not have the financial support for their education. Those who eventually make it through twelve years of schooling graduate lacking even in basic skills, making it impossible to seek gainful employment or pursue higher education. The average wage per person in Vietnam is around ($150) a month so parents need financial support For more information about our student program and project please visit our website https://www.innovations-technical-service.com/

Solution Education is the only way for Vietnamese children to escape poverty. We have seen measurable success and we are now seeking to expand our Tacoma Community College USA Scholarship Project. The program will address the needs of at-risk students and their families in preparing their opportunity to obtain a quality education through USA College's or University's and we carefully screen our student for this scholarship program through the local Police Department certification program

Long-Term Impact This education project is to improve opportunities for future development for education in Vietnam. We're addressing important issues that affect many people. Our mission is to spread awareness and raise money for solutions we have identified. We created this campaign for everyone to contribute at various impact levels. Be sure to review the ways you can make an impact and please share this page with your family and friends. Your involvement is critical to our success in solving problems We are working with a IELTS Test preparation course intervention program for students with poor English skills along with a scholarship program called IELTS for Success!! The problem that we are trying to solve here in Ho Chi Minh City and in other provinces is that we have a waiting list of over 50 at risk students with an IELTS performance of Brand 4 at least two years behind their current grade Level. Both of our organization believe that education prevents poverty

our organization has also been working with two Universities in America to provide support here in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. We offer free services for students such as counseling student and preparation for the USA, and even one-on-one training. We are working closely with Oklahoma City University and Tacoma community college here in Vietnam.

Our organization is a little more than three year old and we are progressing quite rapidly in many areas. We have accomplished more than our milestones. Are main objective is to support education and to provide information to the world about problems we have identified and to raise money for solutions. At this time we feel very confident in our accomplishments . We are constantly improving and upgrading our business plan and strategy even know sometimes our efforts seem to go on unrewarded. This year we had a new representative office at Hutech University in Ho Chi Minh City. And we are developing a new website and program ( Students Festival.com ) which will allow us to promote events and festivals for the purpose of promoting USA education and study abroad programs.
