Dear REACH Supporters,
20 Disadvantaged young women have commenced their training as part of a group of 78 young people who commenced vocational training at REACH Hanoi Centre on 5 December 2012. Because of your generosity, these young women are students in the following courses:

  • 5 in Web & Graphic Design
  • 5 in Sales & Marketing (sales person, cashiers, marketing staff, tele-marketers, sales representatives, market surveyors, promotion agents)
  • 5 in Food & Beverage (waitresses, bartenders)
  • 5 in Nail Painting.

The students come from many different backgrounds including street youth, school dropouts, unemployed secondary school graduates, disadvantaged youth from ethnic minorities and youth with disabilities.

Week one of their training was about introductions and some basic life skills such as time management, personal organisation and team work. Learning through games and enjoyable activities was a big part of this week. Technical training commenced in Week two, as did basic conversational English.  We will continue to provide you with periodic updates on their progress at REACH over the next 12 weeks.

We hope you enjoy these photos of the students in their first two weeks. If you would like to see more photos of our students please visit the REACH Facebook page or subscribe to our e-newsletter.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we help disadvantaged young people in Vietnam get jobs.
