Mission: Empowering low income families with microfinance and education.
They belive that investing in women - who are generally considered “unbankable” - with microfinance services will
lead to a better life for their families.
Mobile School is their innovative solution to solve the problem of no access to computers and internet for the rural disadvantaged children in Vietnam.
Education for children is considered a heavy burden by low-income families, though they are aware of the importance of education for their children.
Their school building project helps to build new schools in areas where access for children is difficult or in areas where there are no schools.
They help the low-income women, youths and kids to learn all about financial education to achieve behavior change.
