School on the Boat (SOTB) is a French NGO created back in 2011, based in Hanoï, Vietnam, as a volunteer’s initiative. The main objective of the organisation is to give access to education to disadvantaged children living along the Red River and in the Long Bien area in Hanoi. Within this framework, SOTB built a sponsorship program allowing them to finance scholarships to the kids participating to their program within 7 different public schools). For the school year 2016/2017, 28 kids were registered in the organisation’s program. Since the creation of School on the boat, 30 kids had the chance to enter in public school.
Beyond this goal, but still in the same frame, the NGO ensures the kids a tutoring program to help them after school. To support the kids through their classes and help them to do their homework, volunteers are coming to SOTB’s office each evening to help them overcome their difficulties in maths, literature or English./.
