Scholarship & Mentoring


Project description

Introduction about Scholarship & Mentoring for students with disabilities

1. Objectives of the program

The objectives of the Scholarship & Mentoring program are to create more suitable studying and developing conditions for students with disabilities, as well as help them be aware of their benefit and responsibility in the society.

DRD believes that if people with disabilities (PWD) have opportunity to study, they will:

- Know how to behave and to perfect their personality

- Open their mind, have soft skills, be more confident about their ability

- Have a chance to assert themselves and therefore to help change the perspective of society on the abilities of PWD

- Find jobs adapted to their capacity, have a stable life, support their family and the community and finally contribute to the development of the country.

2. Impacts of the program

- Students with disabilities granted with this scholarship will have the opportunity to better understand the philosophy “one for all, all for one”. These students will also obtain wider knowledge about disability and living skills through training and activities organized by DRD. After graduation, they will be helped by DRD with their own job search through the network that DRD is currently developing.

- In addition, students with disabilities will be challenged to participate in organizing skill sharing programs for other students with disabilities that contribute to improve their self-confidence and social inclusion.
