"HELPING DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN IN HANOI TO CREATE THEIR OWN BETTER FUTURE"
School on the Boat is a French NGO created in 2011 working in Hanoi in Vietnam. The association aims to give access to education for disadvantaged children living along the Red River and in the Long Bien area of Hanoi.
In this framework, the organization sets up a sponsorship system allowing to finance the school fees of the children of the program (in 7 different Vietnamese public schools).
For the 2019/2020 school year, 26 children are enrolled in the program. Since the creation of School on the Boat, 39 children have been able to enter public school.
Beyond this objective, the association monitors the child in different ways:
Help with homework through a tutoring program to support children in their schooling.
Curiosity, openness and personal development through monthly cultural, sportive and artistic activities.
Health by participating in the children's medical expenses and with a monthly rice distribution (10 kg per child).
