Computer, internet training

In the rural areas of Vietnam, access to internet and computers are limited; computer literacy remains an unaffordable luxury for most children. With the slogan “Investment in education”, TDF’s newest focus has been mobile technical education. As the first of its kind in Vietnam, the Helena’s Mobile School Project, primarily funded by the donations of Ms. Ines Kaindl, provides low-cost education in computer and internet literacy for disadvantaged youth in the rural regions of the Mekong Delta. The mobile schools are brought to youth in rural locations, where access to IT training is limited or non-existent.
 

Mobile School Facts
• Each course is 12 weeks in duration with three 1.5hr sessions/week, covering basics of Microsoft Office Suite and internet use
• The mobile schools are stationed in central community locations such as school or community centre
• Two mobile school designs:
   - Small school (Mekong Mobile School): 25’ container holds 18 students and will train 600 students per year
   - Large school (Sapa and Ha Long Mobile Schools): 40’ container holds 30 students and will train 1200 students per years
• School fee: US $2-3 per course*
 
Future Plans
In 2012, Helena’s Mobile School Project will be capable of providing technical education to 3000 students. Looking towards the future, TDF plans to have 5 mobile schools in operation by 2014, teaching 5000 students each year.
