DANANG, September 5, 2013 - After nine months of intensive classroom training and on-the-job training, the first group of 19 students with disabilities graduated from IT training program (ITTP) at Dong A University in Danang. Students attending ITTP at Dong A University received full scholarships and living support funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) through Catholic Relief Services (CRS). During their training, the students learned skills in graphic design and website development.
Two companies, Minh Phuoc and HRI Vietnam plan to recruit five students from the graduating class. Dong A University and CRS will continue to link students to different employers to support students finding jobs.
Since 2007, USAID and CRS have collaborated with the Hanoi College of IT, Van Lang University in Ho Chi Minh City, and Dong A University in Danang to provide advanced IT training for young people with disabilities from all over Vietnam. This program has trained more than 900 students with disabilities and more than 80 percent of the program's graduates have found jobs after training.
Dong A University plans to train at least 250 students with disabilities in IT skills by 2015.
