We are delighted to report that our partner REACH has won a Transforming Lives award. It was one of 8 winners chosen from among more than 600 social-impact organizations around the world.
The Transforming Lives Awards identifies and supports excellent nonprofits and social entrepreneurs focused on UN Sustainable Development Goal 8: improving livelihoods, productive employment and decent work for all.
The GSRD Foundation has been working together with REACH since 2014 supporting disadvantaged youth in Vietnam by providing vocational training, life-skills education and support in actually finding jobs. Training courses are provided in a range of sectors such as sales and marketing, beauty, web design, and hospitality in REACH’s 6 locations across Vietnam. Since its establishment in 2008, 16,341 students have graduated from REACH, of whom 85% have found jobs.
