Today, July 26, 2019, in Phuc Yen city, Vinh Phuc province, there is the ceremony of computer donation and training of information technology for TYM members. This activity is within the framework of the program “Empowering Vietnamese female entrepreneurs with information technology support”. The program receives the support of Korea International Cooperation Development Agency (KOICA) and REMANn Company (Korea) and expects to bring direct benefit for 100 micro business-women. Attending the Ceremony there are Ms. Duong Thi Ngoc Linh – Member of the Presidium of Vietnam Women’s Union, General Director of TYM, leaders of the Head Office, Management Board and all officers of TYM Vinh Phuc Branch. In the Ceremony, there are also Mr. Jang Manho – CEO of REMANn Vietnam, Ms. Lee Hyojin – Education Project Coordinator of the Korea International Cooperation Development Agency (KOICA) in Vietnam, Ms. Ha Thi Anh Nguyet – Chairwoman of Phuc Yen City Women’s Union, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Xuan Hong – Chairwoman of Binh Xuyen District Women’s Union, Vinh Phuc province, and 20 female entrepreneurs, and representatives of press agencies.
According to Ms. Duong Thi Ngoc Linh, in the development trend of the 4.0 revolution as well as Vietnam’s digital development orientation, the knowledge and application of information technology into production and business activities is necessary and may bring many outstanding benefits to businesses. For nearly 27 years of accompanying Vietnamese women on the way of development, TYM has found that this is a good opportunity for Vietnamese women, especially women who have escaped poverty and are constantly improving themselves to become micro businessman. In this context, the program is designed to bring practical benefits for female entrepreneurs through the donation of computers and information technology training. With that, they would be able to develop management and business capabilities, thereby contributing to improving their own life and creating more jobs for local people. The program expects to directly benefit 100 female entrepreneurs, as well as low-income people currently working for them.
Speaking at the Ceremony, Mr. Jang Manho shares that these donation and support activities are just the tools. The most important things are the dreams and passions of women who are supported. REMANn wishes that with the support of TYM their dreams would come true. The KOICA representative in Vietnam also hopes that 100 laptops and IT training would contribute to the development of the local economy as well as to improve the quality of life of women. REMANn and KOICA commit to continue following and supporting Vietnamese women. On behalf of 20 TYM members at the Ceremony, Ms. Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc shares that she and the others are very happy and touched when receiving the support of TYM for many years, not only in term of credit but also in capacity building and business development. With the computer and information technology knowledge equipped by KOICA, REMANn and TYM, she and the other members would apply to work to improve the efficiency of business management and production.
So far, the program has awarded 40 computers and training for TYM members in Hung Yen and Vinh Phuc. On the basis of comments and evaluation of members, TYM would adjust the training content for the following training and donation in Nam Dinh, Thanh Hoa and Nghe An provinces.
