Disadvantaged youth learn hospitality trade
HCM CITY — The NGO Sai Gon Children's Charity (SCC) held a graduation ceremony last weekend for 34 disadvantaged students who completed a free training course in hospitality.
The youngsters can look for jobs following their six-month training in waiting, bartendering, hygiene and customer care.
They were also taught to communicate confidently in English with the help of foreign volunteers and taught basic IT skills.
Besides vocational training, SCC builds schools in communities where there are none, and provides scholarships to more than 2,300 children from kindergarten to university each year. — VNS
