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

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.
