OUR WORK

ENGLISH THE ANTIDOTE TO TRAFFICKING

Young people who can speak English are not only better able to secure jobs in the growing tourist developments but in the event of being labour exploited, kidnapped or trafficked they can seek help in many countries of the world. Dasatt has delivered English classes five days a week to Adults, Teenagers and children over the past three years. Students are means tested at family levels using a Dasatt Assessment tool for measuring needs of the families. The assessment tool covers such status as health, property, family numbers, employment, income and social life. Severe poverty in a family alerts Dasatt to offering trainee skills placement to the most at risk youth. To date (Dec 2019)  Dasatt assessed over 120 families from the Muine Fishing villages. Dasatt taught 300 students with over 1300 English classes. DASATT prepared 18 trainees with English language, cooking and beverage skills, IT and lifeskills to help them train and get work in Catering Food and Beverage skills at Muine’s growing tourism venues.

THE KONTUM PROJECT

Alarmed by the shocking deaths of 39 young Vietnamese in a Ferry Container at Exeter end of October 2019 Dasatt increased its focus on 15 year olds who are recorded as the highest  percentage group appearing in Vietnamese survivors of trafficking. (Apland Yarrow 2019)

We have begun programmes to villages and schools and already presented  two hour workshops to some 500 school students in the Province of Binh Thuan.

DASATT has begun negotiations with the Department of Ethnic Minorities and Foreign affairs in the Kontum Highlands to deliver a partnership programme that intervenes with the most vulnerable of ethnic minority people in the province.

Owing to the remoteness of the villages in the Highland regions they are easy targets for traffickers.

CATERING SKILLS TRAINING

In 2016 and 2017 we piloted the training of eight young people for 6 months from the poorest families at our Brick Café restaurant. This involved formal English classes, waiting on tables, cooking, bar work. Three went back to school to second level, two got jobs in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, One still works in the Night Market nearby as a barman. Up to December 2019 18 trainees studied full time with Dasatt doing English language every day,   learning cooking and catering with our Instructor chef Thierry, IT Skills with Mr. Vinh to help them train and get work in Catering Food and Beverage skills.

We now offer full time training in cooking, restaurant and english for tourism classes to 11 local young people. Our Executive Chef Mr. Thierry certifies the students in cooking and our English students are certified by CEO Sean Cassin who is ACEL Certified Teacher.
