In partnership with the Training and Rehabilitation Center for the Blind (TRCB) in Hanoi, the training arm of the Vietnam Blind Association (VBA), the Hai Duong Province Blind Association (HDBA) and the Vinh Phuc Province Blind Association (VPBA), Maryknoll gives training courses in capacity building and life skills to blind people at the three centers.

The project provides training in skills they need to better implement programs to assist their blind members and to provide basic life skills training to blind people, especially to women. The project beneficiaries are 120 blind staff people from the Vinh Phuc Blind Association, 276 blind staff from the Hai Duong Blind Association, 75 blind women from Hai Duong Blind Association and 150 blind people who will receive training at the TRCB in Hanoi.

The project will provide equipment and facility upgrading for the TRCB massage center. You can help!
