Vietnam is a rapidly developing country and is becoming a more significant player on the international stage. A young and aspirational population want to take advantage of growing opportunities to make successful lives for themselves and create a healthy economy that will support the Vietnamese people into the future.

However, unlike more developed East Asian countries, the education system in Vietnam has not progressed beyond rote learning and frequent exams. This style of learning no longer prepares young people with the skills and knowledge required to thrive in the modern world.

At CED, we aim to develop new teaching and learning methodologies based on the best performing education systems around the world and introduce these into the Vietnamese national curriculum, giving young people skills relevant in the workplaces of today: teamwork, leadership, critical thinking, problem solving, environmental awareness and citizenship.

Our hope is that with these skills the next generation of young professionals will be able to help Vietnam catch up in the areas where it is currently falling behind, like new scientific research and civil society participation. A more robust education system now will result in a more informed, innovative and involved Vietnamese workforce in the future.


At CED, we aim to develop new teaching and learning methodologies based on the best performing education systems around the world. Working in partnership with scientific institutions, schools, and other public institutions, CED designs and deliver many programs: www.traihehanoi.com

To promote students’ interest in science and innovation we give them the opportunity to not only learn about science, but to actually carry out scientific research and activities. We also support students to join science-based competitions at both regional and international levels. For more information on this please see the following links:

Promoting Women in STEM fields

CED has partnered with over 30 companies, donors and public training institutions in Vietnam to enable over 480 female university students to study science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). By encouraging the next generation of female innovators we will see a positive impact on future sustainable growth and development in Vietnam. The scholarships are to assist in building a better future for the students while encouraging them to succeed in successful future careers.

CED provides ‘The Asia Foundation’ scholarship which aims to fund the education of disadvantaged female students, with a focus on attracting more students towards STEM and improving the quality of STEM subject teaching. In addition to funding, CED organizes activities and necessary skills training for students on the program. CED has currently supported 2,425 disadvantaged girls to complete high school through these scholarships, and has also provided 575 university scholarships. Some partners include Estee Lauder and Friends of the Arts Foundation.

Promoting parental participation in education

CED supports activities to build stronger relationships between families and schools. We implement educational activities and programs that include the input of parents to provide a better experience for all – parents feel their voices and concerns are heard and they can see the effects of the ideas that they put forward.

Effective vocational training program

Many workers today do not have the right knowledge and skills for the labor market, even if they attended vocational training run by state-owned training providers. Vietnam must urgently improve the effectiveness of vocational training and job creation support programs (especially those for poor and disadvantaged groups) that contribute to reducing unemployment and underemployment rates, consequently minimizing related social issues. In partnerships with vocational training providers, the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, and other NGOs, CED is supporting initiatives to enhance vocational training quality for disadvantaged groups in Vietnam.
