THE CHAIRMAN & THE FOUNDER

Going beyond conventional measures of success, his book, “Relaunch France and Europe – The Voluntary Democracy”, earned the prestigious CRESUS Prize in 2011.

Situated in the south of France, the ancient Chateau Forge Du Roy is the Headquarter of Foundation B’Lao, as well as the Resourcing Center of Group Financière B’Lao and our partners. Especially, this is also where the International Award event takes place, once every 3 years, starting from 2022. These awards will be given to exceptional innovations with global influence to Lifetime Education, what Foundation B’Lao has always been committing to. The Foundation B’Lao pioneers to encourage humanity’s creativity in global connection for lifetime education and training development, as well as contributing practical values to the society. This is what the Foundation B’Lao endeavors to achieve.
Created in France in January 2017 by Mr. Phu TRAN VAN, Chairman – Founder of Group Financière B’Lao, as a milestone of social responsibility where the company is governed by those who build it, the Foundation promotes and develops lifetime education that conveys the Core Values of life in that it believes:
Mr. Phu TRAN VAN is convinced, from his observation in life, that social performance, developed by a system of Core Values is at the root of the economic performance and that these two performances feed each other, being the two complementary forces of the same ambition.
The pioneered engagement in social responsibility of the Foundation B’Lao through lifetime education has begun with the opening of the first B’Lao Kindergarten in August, 2017 in Phong Dien, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam, next to Group Scavi’s biggest Industrial Center. The kindergarten welcomes about 200 children from 18 months up to 5 years old across 8 classes, with 20 teachers working full time. In the long run, the kindergarten will be able to comfortably accommodate 600 children.
The Foundation B’Lao will expand the scope of its educational projects in every location where the Group is operating. In Northern France, with its leading role, the Foundation B’Lao will connect with public authorities and industry partners to develop educational projects in the region. In Vietnam, the Foundation B’Lao will open green campuses offering holistic education programs, spanning from preschool to university, as well as continuous and vocational education for the underemployed.
