Its hard to believe that next week 20 disadvantaged young women in Vietnam, supported by Global Giving donors, will have finished their 12 weeks intensive vocational training at REACH. Some are graduating from hospitality / food and beverage or sales and marketing, while others from the hairdressing and makeup course. The web and graphic design students have another three weeks to go. All the graduates, with REACH’s support, are actively seeking jobs.
REACH introduces them to employers such as local restaurants and hotels, hairdressing salons and supermarkets. REACH also makes sure that they have the best chance of gaining a good job by thorough job readiness training. This includes a health check so that employers can be assured of the good health of REACH candidates. We also make sure that every graduate has up-to-date and comprehensive CV. Job interview training is also a must. That’s why over 80% of our graduates end up in good jobs within a few weeks of completing their training.
These 20 young women are among the 400+ students who will graduate from REACH centres in March 2013. REACH will continue supporting these 20 young women for a further 6 months. We will keep introducing them to potential employers until they get a job. Our staff will also visit them in their workplace and have regular telephone contact with them and their employers to make sure they settle into their new jobs.
We couldn’t do this without your support and these disadvantaged young women are getting a good job because of your generosity. Why not support us to help another 20 disadvantaged young people in Vietnam get a job?
