Storyworld is our online, multimedia learning platform designed to help school students learn about development issues through the story of one poor community in Hoa Binh, Vietnam.
Meet Tam, a 12-year-old student from the Dao ethnic minority. Tam is lucky enough to go to school in Da Bac, where 50 per cent of the people are illiterate. Join Tam in the classroom, at home and in the community to get a taste of her life.
You can also learn about the challenges the Dao and Muong people face, such as providing food and income for themselves, building schools and other infrastructure, accessing services, and adapting to environmental disaster and climate change. Then figure out what you can do to help poor and vulnerable people using the natural resources available.
