Today, together with Colliers International Vietnam, we visit Binh Thanh Hope School, a private school for the hearing impaired established in 1986. The school’s main mission is to teach children with hearing disabilities to read and speak and to improve their education level to at least secondary high-school (9 grade) and hopefully can participate in the workforce for a self-sustainable living.
