About VVOB

VVOB – education for development is an organisation based in Belgium with more than 35 years of experience in sustainably improving the quality of education systems. VVOB has received support for this from multiple leading funding partners, adding up to a total annual budget of over 13 million euros spread over 10 country programs. VVOB reinforces the capacity of ministries of Education and their institutions to implement their education policies as effectively as possible. This guarantees the sustainability of results. The geographical, thematic and operational choices VVOB makes in each programme are informed by relevant research and the policy priorities of VVOB’s partner countries and formulated in partnership with their governments.

From 2017 to 2021, VVOB Vietnam is working on an early education programme BaMi (Mitigating Barriers to Learning) financed by Belgium and implemented in close cooperation with the Departments of Education and Training (DOETs) of Quang Nam, Quang Ngai and Kon Tum provinces in Central Vietnam. This programme aims at improving the quality of teaching and learning of all 3-to5-year-old children in preschools. More specifically, it focuses on enhancing the knowledge and skills of the DOETs to strengthen the capacities of preschool teachers and school leaders to mitigate children’s barriers to learning and participation (eg: barriers related to gender, environment, culture, language,) for better participation and well-being. VVOB supports targeted disadvantaged and ethnically diverse districts to enhance their needs-based and school-based in-service teacher professional development towards processed oriented child monitoring and reflective learning communities in preschools. The GENTLE project complements the barriers-to-learning approach that is the backbone of the BaMi program.

About Gender-responsive teaching and learning in the early years (GENTLE)


Young children in Vietnam are exposed to gender roles and expectations. This early gender socialisation is reinforced in preschool environments (e.g. through gender-specific toys and genderbased activities). Particularly in the central provinces of Vietnam, inequalities due to early gender socialisation are among the most persisting equity issues, affecting both girls and boys.

Children start forming their gender identities at the age of 4. Addressing children’s early years’
experiences through gender-responsive play-based learning is crucial to impact their long term
cognitive and social-emotional development, and to work on the prevention and elimination of
gender-inequality, a precursor to gender-based violence.

The Vietnamese government, preschool teachers and leaders show commitment to promote gender responsive play-based learning but need support to achieve their goals. Parents and communities are not always aware of gender bias and its impact on children or are hesitant to change existing gender

Therefore, the Overall objective of the action is defined as: 3-5-year-old girls and boys in central
Vietnam experience gender-responsive play-based learning in preschool and at home, contributing to
the development of positive identities, relationships and self-esteem, which enable them to have healthy and joyful lives free from gender-based violence.
