Context

Before initiating the program, Passerelles numériques conducted a thorough study of the socio-economic status of Vietnam. Demographic data revealed that the vast majority of the population in remote areas and the Central Highlands suffered from a stagnant economy and limited access to higher education.

Danang seemed to be a promising hub for IT development, with strong support and incentives granted by the government. Therefore, it was an ideal place for our students to find secure job opportunities after graduating.

Impact

Since 2010, PN Vietnam has transformed the lives of more than 500 underprivileged youth through IT education.

In 2020, 94% of our 350 alumni had found a qualified job after graduation with an average salary of ~$633 USD per month – which is about 4 times higher than the minimum wage in Danang.

And this benefit reaches far beyond our graduates themselves; they reported spending ~36% of their total income to support their family and community.


Selection

Each year, from January to August, Passerelles numériques Vietnam’s selection team completes a rigorous, four-step process to select talented and motivated underprivileged youths from seven provinces in Central Vietnam: Quảng Bình, Quảng Trị, Đà Nẵng, Quảng Nam, Quảng Ngãi, Kon Tum, Bình Định.

PN Vietnam collaborates with Study Promotion Associations (SPAs) from each province, who introduce us to local high schools, and facilitate the process in accordance with local laws and customs.

A special effort is made to include at least 50% young women in each class. Beyond that, priority is given to the poorest students irrespective of sex or gender identity.
