Boeing believes in contributing to the communities where we are engaged in and is committed to supporting important causes such as helping victims of human trafficking, improving education and healthcare as well as youth careers in IT through our work with community partners in Vietnam.
STEM curriculum modules to promote student interest in science and math
Boeing supports Kenan Institute Asia (KIA) Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) methodology which incorporates use of ICT in the classroom, project based learning methodologies and learning theory. The Boeing Enhanced Project–based Learning (Boeing EPBL) project will improve STEM education in Vietnamese schools by integrating project-based learning into the classroom context. The project focuses on improving science and math outcomes by focusing on teachers, while also engaging students and school leaders. The project has developed 10 master teachers and built the capacity of 74 educators who are now using high-impact practices to improve the learning and grow the 21st-century skills of nearly 4,500 students in Hanoi.
Preparing disadvantaged young adults in Vietnam for IT careers
Boeing supports The Asia Foundation program to address high unemployment and to support young adults by providing resources in IT skills development. The long-term goal to help break down the aforementioned barriers faced by disadvantaged, unemployed youth by providing them with in-demand skills that are in short supply in Vietnam. The program has so far equipped 88 disadvantaged young people across Vietnam with 21st-century skills that will enable them to secure jobs in higher-skilled sectors leading to increased income and improved quality of life. 44% (40/92) of trainees completed the 3- to 6-month training courses in graphic design and other essential skills that will enable them to secure and sustain careers in the IT industry. 80% of trained graduates secured sustainable job placements, with 32/40 trained graduates actively applying for jobs.
Recovery and resilience for survivors
Boeing has been supporting Hagar in Vietnam since 2008, impacted 479 beneficiaries across a wide range of service and 7,500 citizens through awareness raising campaigns. This program addresses the community needs of women and children vulnerable to be protected from human trafficking (HT), gender-based violence (GBV) and sexual abuse (SA) and for survivors to receive quality support and access to social services to heal and recover.
Capacity building of public health professionals
Boeing supports the Health Right International (HRI) project, which provides youths who are victims of illegal trafficking with trauma recovery and assistance for community reintegration. HRI works with the Research and Training Centre for Community Development (RTCCD) to run the program. Training program combines components of client-centred and problem-solving counselling, which recognize the impacts of individual and environmental factors on a child's health and wellbeing.
