PART I: PROJECT INTRODUCTION. 1. GENERAL INFORMATION. Vietnam, a beautiful country with marvelous landscape and culture, is on its way to adapt with the fast pace of globalization and world changing development. After years of wars and the afterward reconstruction, Vietnam has done a good job bringing education and economy to a higher level, which helps a lot in empowering the new generations to develop and make change to the new world. Still, the huge population, the disparity, together with the lack of skills and knowledge are now the problems that we have to confront to make a leap toward a brighter future. One obvious issue we are facing is the lack of international knowledge, global interaction and essential interpersonal communication skills. WHAT are we going to do about it?
AIESEC, with the vision of peace and fulfillment of humankind potential, came to Vietnam in 2006 and is doing our best to improve the situation. Coming up with the initiative of educating university students about society, culture, businessâ€Ś in a global experience perspective, AIESEC FTU HN proudly introduces Global Passport project, with our belief to make a positive change in our society by making impact on the youth through our learning courses.

We aim at creating a global learning and interacting environment for students to truly participate and live the spirit, starting with the educating course in which interns will design the content and deliver it
to the students. The content of the course will be built based on the model of Cultural buddy teaching and Limit breaking activities: Cultural buddy teaching: Each intern will be the buddy of 1 – 4 students outside class. They will have more chances to interact with others, be close friends and learn from the cultural differences between countries. Limit breaking activities: During classes, the students will continuously be challenged and forced to step out of their comfort zone with the limit breaking activities. The ultimate purpose of these activities is to make students believe in themselves and build up their confidence.
