Special Needs Education Programme

In addition to children from disadvantaged backgrounds, saigonchildren also cares for children with disabilities and supports them to build a better life through proper education and training through the Special Needs Education Programme. We cooperate with many specialist organisations to bring early intervention and other physical/mental support to enhance the abilities of children with disabilities   and help them integrate into the community.

Funding of $1,500 to $3,000 per project is made available to qualifying small & front-line local Vietnamese organisations working directly with children with disabilities to run a variety of projects such as:

  • Promoting the education and training of children with disabilities with self-help skills, vocational training and social development activities.
  • Developing opportunities for organisations to explore their own capacity to enhance and improve their skills and facilities for special education.
  • To increase the ability and confidence of organisations, schools, and groups in identifying and addressing the issues that limit their effective functioning. .
  • To develop networks of communication, experiences, and cooperation between different groups.
  • To promote models of good practice in the support and education of children with disabilities.
