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. In 2017 Dasatt assessed over 40 families from the Muine Fishing villages. In 2017 Dasatt taught 70 students with over 250 English classes. IN 2017 DASATT prepared 8 trainees with English language to help them train and get work in Catering Food and Beverage skills at Brick Café.

THE WASTE WORKER PROJECT KONTUM

In response to the causative factors in gender discrimination that make women more likely to be trafficked than men DASATT is selecting a group of the most demeaned women in the Highlands for a project intervention. These women with their children work in the refuse dumps of Muine. They harvest plastic, paper, copper, and other items for recycling. The gasses and contamination leave them with skin and breathing disorders. Dasatt’s primary concern is to avert the risky labour migration of the children. Our partners from Enterprise Social Environment and Natural Resources Upland – Environmental and Social private Highlands Enterprise (HESE) have agreed to work with the women to improve their health and income options. Address: 269/10 Tran Van Hai, Truong Chinh Ward, Kon Tum City.

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. Three are still attending our Dasatt training and English classesDasatt taught 70 students with over 250 English classes. IN 2017 DASATT prepared 8 trainees with English language to help them train and get work in Catering Food and Beverage skills at Brick Café. 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.
