The project „Solar Energy for Education for Vietnam“ was startet in 2010. On March 20th 2010 a cooperation contract has been signed between the Vietnamese Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Post-Harvest Technology and the GÖDE-Stiftung. Since then 100 PV-systems have been shipped to Vietnam, installed and put into operation to power TVs and DVD-players.Some of the supported areas in the province of Quang Ninh: Ngoc Vung, Quan Lan, Ban Sen and Dai Xuyen.
