VGP – The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) plans to spend US $85 million on establishing a new education model (VNEM) in Việt Nam over the next three years, said Head of the GPE Robert Prouty.
GPE will prioritize the fund for 20 most disadvantaged provinces in Việt Nam and chose one school in each of 22 provinces with more favorable conditions to carry out the project.
New teaching methods will be introduced in these schools to replace traditional ones to make students more active in studies while teachers not only give lessons but also organize activities for students to discover and obtain new skills.
GPE’s financial resources are sponsored by individuals and organizations form 20 countries and 50 countries have been benefited. In the recent eight years, GPE has helped 50% of the beneficial countries’ population to go to schools.
Each year, the fund provides a non-refundable aid of US $500 million and this year, the figure is scheduled to increase to US $700 million for education.
The VNEM has been put on trial in some provinces, including Lào Cai and Kon Tum with positive outcomes.
