ABOUT US
Established by CDS, Rural Education Development Organization is a non governmental education organization operating in the North of Vietnam. Its goal is to help disadvantaged children and young people realize their potential by expanding collaboration with international volunteering human resource, international development organizations, donor groups, member governments and civil society.
Rural Education Development Organization carries out maximum support in improving capacities, knowledge and skills through informal education to give them opportunities access with high quality educational service, enable them to become the excellence farmers and leaders of their local community.

WHAT WE DO
We believe Education is fundamental to human progress, enabling individuals and communities to acquire skills and knowledge essential for improving their quality of life. But for vulnerable groups like rural teenagers access to high quality education is limited while this teenagers must be a major part of any equation dealing with immediate and long-term solutions to sustainable development. It is true that young people need education and training to prepare them to become the community leaders of the future, but even more importantly, they must receive maximum support and access to resources to confront and overcome challenges in their lives and deal with conflict and decision making sometimes on their own. Actual they need to be given opportunities to see the bigger picture of life, to realize their own potential and here at our program.


BLENDED PROGRAM

Our blended learning program is to help these teenagers realize more of their potential and enjoy expanded capabilities to address the increasing global social, economic and environmental challenges we face on. This will be done in real work situations and organize training courses about the Essential Successful Living Skills. They include:
• Maintaining a positive outlook
• Setting and managing goals
• Finding a source of self-motivation
• Making the best use of time
• Effectively managing income and resources.
• Solving problems creatively
• Presentation skills
• Creating and holding on to your vision
• Receiving guidance from your heart
• Being willing to embrace change
• Communicating your ideas
• Collaborating with others (Especial English skills is strongly focus as an effective tool for the integration and globalization)



WHY PROGRAM NEED YOU
We are believe that a multicultural environment will be a great one for the real work situations, because activities in this environment allow people to experience new things and to express their feelings, they may benefit from a more hands-on or practical learning experience, allow them to become actively involved in the learning process, encourage them to critically think about and analyze information themselves, rather than being passive recipients.

No one person can do everything, but each of us can do something. We need to find something that moves us and act on it. We have ongoing needs for volunteers with different backgrounds. reflect the rich diversity of a global community in race, all are united by their common desire to help others.
