Ms. Anh Loan shared about disability

During the morning training, Ms. Luu Thi Anh Loan - Acting Director of DRD provided useful information around the topic of "Disability Equality”. In this session, Ms. Loan asks many questions and situations related to the disability, most students still didn’t understand and were hesitant in dealing with people with disabilities. When being asked "What disability can people engage in?" and many students said that "People with a disabilities apart from office job, they cannot participate in other activities." After seeing a short film about woman with disabilities in China doing all sorts of activities like being a person without disability, the students have a more positive outlook on people with disabilities and change their mind.

At the end of the morning session, Ms. Loan shared the desire for students to join hands to help people with disabilities easily integrate with community in general, or students with disabilities who are attending school in particular. All the students were interested in the training and wanted to have more training session later.

In the afternoon training, Mr. Truong Huy Vu - DRD expert – trained about people with disabilities support skills. Beginning with the familiarization of wheelchair parts, conventional wheelchair assembly and disassembly methods had gradually attracted the attention and interest of students.

Mr. Huy Vu shared: “Even though you support those who elders, people with tentative disabilities or people with disabilities that safety is the most important thing; safety means for both supported people and for you, who support people.”

With 6-year experience in supporting people with disabilities, Mr. Huy Vu guided both detailed and easy-to-understand steps to support people with disabilities, mainly to support them on/off the bus. The students took turn to role play as facilitators and people with disabilities to try the steps as instructed.
