THANH TAM SCHOOL

INTRODUCTION OF THE VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTER

I- INTRODUCTION:

Thanh Tam School of Special Education was established in 1990, and after 20 years of providing services, the center has had significant strides in education and rehabilitation care for children with disabilities including hearing impairment, mental impairment, cerebral palsy, and autism.

Each year, 4-10 students graduate from the school and currently we have about 20 students with disabilities who completed the program. In the future there will many other students with the opportunity to accomplish the necessary vocational training to live meaningful lives. In 2010 after the school’s transition to a newly built center with 13,626 square meters at 157B Phan Tu Street, Ngu Hanh Son District in Da Nang City, our school has established an effective long-term training program to meet the needs of our students and their families.



On January 1, 2012, with the support of the Luxembourg government through Christian Solidarity International (CSI), Thanh Tam School of Special Education has officially placed the first brick for the vocational training center with 1,152 square meters of ground floor that includes training rooms for bakery, carpentry, gardening, and embroidery. The first floor consists of training rooms for massage therapy, marketing art, women’s boarding room and supply room equipped with all necessary tools and supplies for training. The tentative timeline for operation of the vocational center is October 2012.

We plan to implement our commitments  in key steps which youth with disabilities need information or support.
