Le Projet Imagine is rolling out its “Imagine Schools” program in Vietnam, in partnership with Planète Enfants & Développement, the global nonprofit organization for children!
Our “Imagine Schools” program is proving wonderfully successful!
As you know, since the beginning of the school year in September, all over France and from kindergarten to high school, nearly 1,600 students have been participating in our Learning Coexistence program. Because this program’s values of solidarity and commitment carry a universal message, we are working on deploying the program internationally. The adventure has begun already in Vietnam thanks to the support of the nonprofit organization Planète Enfants & Développement that is helping us to test the “Imagine Schools” Program with teenagers.
What a joy to see the “Imagine Schools” Program being adopted on the other side of the world!

Our partner, Planète Enfants & Développement, has set up a campaign thanks to the crowdfunding platform helloasso with the aim of raising the funds needed to implement the sessions (translating the material, purchasing supplies, organizing a ceremony …), with the ultimate goal of enabling vulnerable children to benefit from our program in the best possible conditions.
Thank you for making this project possible!
Once upon a time… there was a great partnership!
When Marjory Wachtel, Country Director and Project Manager at Planète Enfants & Développement in Vietnam, heard the story of our founder, Frédérique Bedos, and about the “Imagine Schools” program in the social networks, it was love at first sight! Interested in both our message and our Learning Coexistence program, she decided to test it on site in Ho Chi Minh City, where her organization is already working with several vocational training centers.
Our two entities then worked hand in hand, and starting in December 2019 our program was able to implement the first sessions in two schools, in Nhan Dao and Hung Vuong, with around thirty students. This initial phase will end in February. It covers themes both powerful and diverse: coexistence, migration, gender equality, climate change, etc.

We were obviously enthusiastic about joining in on the organization’s mission in education and civic awareness for young people!

Every session is written up in a detailed report enhanced with many pictures. The content is rewarding and stimulating!
We extend our warmest encouragement to our new partner and its members who are working every day with courage and determination to help the new generations build a better future.
We also seize this opportunity to wish our Imagine participants a wonderful Têt – the Vietnamese New Year!
