La Boulangerie Française – HCMC aims to enable Vietnamese vulnerable youngsters (age 18-23), through a 16-20 months training, to become highly-skilled and responsible adults, socially well integrated with the capability to become agents of their own development.
To ensure its economic sustainability, it operates as a social business and, thanks to the sale of the products made by the apprentices, it aims to self-finance more than 90% of its operating costs.
