AES Vietnam supports local students with STEM education and career guidance on Values Day 2023

AES Vietnam held its Values Day 2023 celebration on November 9, 2023, at the Mong Duong Secondary School in Cam Pha City, Quang Ninh Province.

The event saw the attendance of more than 300 people, including local authorities, teachers and students from Mong Duong secondary school, and leaders as well as staff of AES Vietnam.

Values Day is an annual initiative by AES Corporation, aiming to reinforce the company’s core values of ‘Safety First’, ‘Highest Standards’ and ‘All Together’, and to demonstrate its commitment to the communities in which it operates. As part of the event, AES Vietnam signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Mong Duong Secondary School on the implementation of the STEM education program for the 2023-2024 school year. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is a key driver of innovation and sustainable development in the 21st century.

Mr. Joseph Uddo, President of AES Vietnam

AES Vietnam has partnered with the school to provide a one-year STEM program, which consists of 16 STEM lessons, various STEM-related activities, and two STEM festivals. The program has benefited more than 125 students and teachers, enhancing their understanding and awareness.

On Values Day 2023, AES Vietnam also organized a STEM festival, which featured various interactive booths, games, and experiments. AES staff and students also created several STEM models, which were showcased on the day of the festival.

The purpose of these activities is to support the local education system and to foster a culture of curiosity, creativity, and collaboration among the students and teachers. With these initiatives, AES Vietnam is proactively translating its AES Values into activities that positively impact and improve lives in local communities.

“We are very proud to partner with the Mong Duong Secondary School, where we are holding the Values Day today, to implement the STEM education program. We believe that education is the key to unlocking the potential of every individual and society,” said Mr. Joseph Uddo, President, AES Vietnam. “I also would like to take this chance to recognize the hard work and dedication of our people. We will continue to work further to promote our AES Values in both our business, providing much-needed electricity to Vietnam, and in our social mandate to the local communities in which we operate,” he added.

Since 2012, over 130 social impact initiatives have been implemented by AES, focusing on four main pillars – Health, Education, Livelihoods and Infrastructure. The activities have made a long-lasting benefit and contributed to improving the quality of life of more than 200,000 people in neighboring communities in Vietnam.
