Advo was inspired by the journey of a Vietnamese friend from ACS (Independent). Through his journey from a rural province in Central Vietnam to Da Nang to sit for the ASEAN scholarship exam, he benefitted from the tremendous opportunity the access to quality education was able to accord him. The exposure at ACS (Independent) enabled him to enter into a top US university in the Bay Area and thereafter secure a job at a leading bulge-bracket investment bank as well as attend Harvard Business School. His story woke us up to the importance exposure plays in widening the ambitions of youth across the region, evolving their perceptions of the career path they can achieve.
In 2018, Advo was born. Echoing the leading principle of 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to “leave no one behind”, Advo aims to enable inclusive and equitable quality education for all.
Advo’s team have been active in volunteering across various organisations such as the Red Cross of Australia, TWC2 in Singapore as well as the outreach efforts of the various religious organisations we are affiliated to. Through our prior offline volunteer work, Advo’s team is keenly aware of the need to partner our online platform with an offline support network.
Hence, we adopted an “Online Moves Offline” model. Not only do we digitally connect donors to students, we combine it with an offline student support network through their academic institutions. This ensures our students can fully benefit from the utility of our funding. To this goal we will operate on a B2B2C Model by only onboarding students who are within the network of existing academic institutions, in this manner we will be able to work in tandem with existing school support networks to monitor Advo students.
