Access to quality education complicated for ethnic minorities
In addition to early childhood education and access to and quality of education, Action Education has worked in Vietnam on the issue of vocational training, particularly for young people aged between 15 and 35 from ethnic minorities living in rural and mountainous areas. Due to limited or non-existent access to quality education and vocational training, young people lack economic and professional opportunities and access to resources to develop their businesses.
