We are a social enterprise organization based in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Our primary focus is community development, educational improvement, and cultural exchange. 

We specialize in helping Vietnamese students of all ages improve their English language skills. We aim to provide our students with the opportunity to improve their conversational English and perfect their pronunciation. As well as provide students with increased confidence and creativity through the English language and boost opportunities for them to find more skilled jobs.

Our English teaching programs target local communities, specifically the disadvantaged, in an effort to give everyone a chance to learn English.

By creating a community of international volunteers and Vietnamese locals we hope to increase the knowledge of other’s cultures and create lasting bonds.

In our community, we believe that education is fundamental to sustainable development. Therefore, our aim is to create an open learning environment for all our students. At many universities in Vietnam, students learn English grammar but rarely learn correct pronunciation or are able to engage in real conversation. Once they graduate, they have difficulty finding employment in the best paying jobs. This is because these jobs often require a high level of English communication skills.

Our mission is to build a community through the English language by providing education and bridging cultural differences and promoting international exchange.
