Dhiraagu has pledged to contribute towards supporting Care Society’s Vocational Training Unit (VTU) Program for children with disabilities at a virtual event held yesterday.
This year, the program will focus on training students with basic computer skills. There are currently 6 students with Downs Syndrome and other disabilities who have enrolled in the program. VTU plans to further expand the program and enrol more students this year. The objective of this year’s program is for students to be able to learn the basics of a computer and introduce students to Microsoft applications like Word, Excel, etc and learn how to maintain a computer/laptop.
Speaking at the virtual event yesterday, Ms. Naushan Muhaimin, Executive Director of Care Society stated “Our heartfelt gratitude to goes to Dhiraagu for their generous contribution to Care Development Centre’s Vocational Training, especially focused on basic Computer skills training for children with disabilities this year. We hope that Dhiraagu will continue to support and contribute to our programs in the future as well.”
“We are happy to extend our support to Care Society’s Vocational Training Unit which is especially encouraging students with disabilities to learn computer skills this year. We hope to continue our support to programs that empower children and help them reach their full potential,” stated Ms. Athifa Ali, Director of Corporate Services at Dhiraagu.
Since the establishment of the Vocational Training Unit in 2018, Dhiraagu has continued to support the VTU Program by the Care Society. These programs have taught various skills such as, sewing, craft and design for children with different disabilities. Today marks World Down Syndrome Day and it is a day to reflect on the fact that people with Down Syndrome and other disabilities experience many challenges and setbacks, but they also experience love, care and hope just like all of us. It is important to ensure that they are not left behind and they too get the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to social and economic development.
