Lawrence S. Ting Foundation held a workshop on October 6, 2023, titled “Our better angels” Project – Progress, Challenges, and Solutions”. The participants in the workshop comprised the Board of Directors of Lawrence S. Ting Foundation, along with representatives from the Departments of Education and Training and schools catering to disabled children in provinces including Can Tho, An Giang, Dong Thap, Ben Tre, and Soc Trang; and a representative from the Central Pedagogical College of Ho Chi Minh City.

During the conference, Lawrence S.

This initiative, initiated by Lawrence S. Ting Foundation in 2021, aims to provide support to schools that cater to disabled children in the Mekong Delta region, with the goal of enhancing the quality of education for over 1,000 disabled students. The project has been designed with a long-term vision and is being executed incrementally, encompassing activities such as collaborative training and coaching to enhance the teaching skills of educators, the establishment of a dedicated digital library for children with disabilities, and the improvement of infrastructure facilities at schools that serve disabled children.

Building on the initial achievements, participants at the workshop engaged in discussions about the challenges faced and potential solutions to enhance the project’s effectiveness. Additionally, the workshop put forth recommendations for future directions and activities to be undertaken in the project’s upcoming phases.
