The Department of Early Childhood Education (ECE) at the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with VVOB-Education for Development, a non-profit organisation founded in Belgium in 1982. VVOB’s mission is to contribute to an equitable world through improving the quality of education. Currently, VVOB is active in countries in Asia, Africa and South America.
The MoU provides both parties with a framework to collaborate on joint research projects, publications and exchanges, organisation of events, and internship opportunities for ECE students. The focus of the cooperation will be on several thematic areas of common interest in ECE, including play-based pedagogy, arts in education, and language-rich learning environments.
Dr. Alfredo Bautista, Associate Head of Internationalisation at the ECE Department and Ms. Karolina Rutkowska, Country Programmes Manager at VVOB in Vietnam signed the MoU in June 2022. The MoU takes effect from now until 31 December 2026.
