Savills Vietnam hosts professional training for Blue Dragon Children's Foundation

07 August 2018

Savills Vietnam hosted an especially designed training course for Blue Dragon tertiary scholars to provide them with essential professional skills.

Held in both Hanoi and Danang, the training programme consisted of theoretical and practical aspects including career advice from a Savills representative and team-building activities.

Students learnt about professional communication skills and information related to obtaining employment. Additionally, participants received guidance and advice on how to write a CV and answer interview questions. These essential skills give students the confidence to enter the competitive job market.

The training course offered key employment skills for all industries with a focus on the real estate segment. Savills Vietnam also provided information internship and career opportunities available within the real estate industry.

Savills Vietnam has collaborated with Blue Dragon since 2013 via various charity activities, including financial and resource support. In May 2018, Savills Vietnam funded the Blue Dragon Tertiary Student Support Programme. The programme provided ten scholarships to students in need and covers tuition fees and living allowances.

About Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation:

Since our small beginnings in 2003, Blue Dragon has become a powerful force for change on the streets of Vietnam, both in the bustling cities and in rural areas where poverty is widespread. Blue Dragon offers children and families in crisis the chance to turn their lives around, providing practical solutions to the daily problems that are keeping poverty alive. For children in Vietnam who are born into poverty, there is little hope for the chance of a better life. More than 66% of the population lives in rural areas, where rice farming is the major industry and whole families earn as little as $1 – $2 a day. Children growing up in extreme poverty often have no choice but to quit school and move far from home, exposing them to dangers such as trafficking, homelessness, sexual exploitation, drug abuse, and illness.

Blue Dragon believes that every child deserves exceptional care so they can grow and flourish. Their services are holistic, including rescue and crisis care for young people in immediate danger; shelter; legal advocacy; and long term support to return to school and training. While taking care of each child’s immediate needs, they invest in community development and long-term change on a systemic scale.

Blue Dragon helps kids in crisis throughout Vietnam. They work with street kids, runaway children, victims of human traffickingchildren with disabilities, young rural-urban migrants, kids affected by drugs and HIV/AIDS, homeless families, child prisoners, and the rural poor. They are there for every child who needs us to see them through a crisis, and we work with them until they no longer need our assistance. For the last 15 years, Blue Dragon has collaborated with many non-profit organisations and companies, including Savills Vietnam.
