The new Mekong Organics Initiative is training English for rural children in the remote rural villages of the Mekong Delta. Dr Nguyen Van Kien, the founder of Mekong Organics initiated this program for rural kids in the Mekong Delta where he grew up from a rice growing family in Thuan Hung Commune, My Tu District of Soc Trang province. At his secondary school age, he did not have a chance to study English. He went to school by rowing a boat with a group of peers in the village. He entered to Can Tho University in 1996 when he started his first English lesson with city kids. He recognized the importance of learning English for success, especially for the rural kids. He decided to pilot this program in his hometown, where he gave 3 scholarships (a tablet for a kid) and two in-kind supports for two rural girls in the organic rice-shrimp community in Tri Luc Commune, Thoi Binh District of Ca Mau province, and Vinh Loi organic rice cooperative in Thanh Tri District of Soc Trang province to assist them learning English with his mentor-ship and speaking English with the native Australian. The program will take for 2-3 years until the kids are confident to communicate English. Mekong Organics’ strategy is to extend this program for many disadvantaged kids in the rural of Vietnam. This program was initially funded by the Rotary Club of Hall, under the project “Organic Farming in the Mekong Delta Vietnam (RAOAF)”. The project is managed and operated by Dr Van Kien Nguyen, Director of Mekong Organics PTY LTD.
