Helping 20 disadvataged young women in Vietnam get jobs - student interviews

You will be pleased to know that our recruitment activities are going well and we already have over 80 students who have applied to commence studying at REACH in Hanoi on 5 December 2012. Among these are 20 disadvantaged young women who will have gained a place in the REACH vocational training program because of your generous support.

In fact, we have been so encouraged by your generosity that we have set a new goal to raise $20,000. With every additional $10,000 raised REACH will help another 20 disadvantaged Vietnamese young people - from poor families / trafficked women / victims of domestic violence - find jobs by providing 12 weeks of intensive vocational training & 6 months post-course support.

And what a great time now to be embarking on a more ambitious target as during December 2012, Global Giving is offering 100% matching for all recurring donations. This means if you make a recurring donation commitment of $10 per month, REACH will receive $20 – enough to pay for a REACH uniform and suitable clothing for a job interview for 2 students. 

We hope you enjoy these pictures of some of the young women who came for student interviews recently for places in the Hanoi vocational training courses commencing 5 December 2012.We will have a further report when these 20 young women commence their training.

Helping 20 disadvataged young women in Vietnam get jobs - an update

Reading about REACH courses
Reading about REACH courses

We are making great progress at REACH implementing our project to help 20 disadvantaged young women in Vietnam get a job.

During November 2012 we have been carrying out student recruitment activities across Hanoi and surrounding districts, including on-line advertising, press advertisements, publicising REACH courses through social media, visits to local Communes, current and past students handing out leaflets at bus stations, market places, and other locations where disadvantaged young people are likely to be. This will culminate with assessment interviews of prospective students at the REACH centre in Hanoi on 25 November.

The new students will commence their vocational training courses in Hanoi on 5 December, and thanks to your support, there will be places for 20 disadvantaged young women on these courses. Students will be able to choose to undertake a 15 week program in one of the following areas: Sales & Marketing; Web & Graphic Design, Food & Beverage, Nail Art and Personal Grooming.

In our next report we will give you an update on how many female and male students we are training in these courses, as well as their progress in the first month of training. We will also share some stories from the female students that you have so generously supported.
