To whom might concern:

Fifteen years has passed, and there have been so many ups and downs while Sao Mai Center has always been conducting its missions of developing learning and working skills for the blind in Vietnam. Started from a computer training project for the blind at Bung Sang Community, Sao Mai Computer Center for the Blind was founded in 2001 with many activities to eradicate computer illiteracy for the blind, to train the trainers, to provide computer labs for provincial blind associations/colleges... Besides, Sao Mai staff has never stopped studying and researching to create more innovative technological products for the blind such as: the speech engine Sao Mai Voice, the talking dictionary Sao Mai Dictalk, digital talking book library…

Having recognized the increasing difficulties in finding employment solutions for the blind in recent years, Sao Mai Center decided to restructure itself and widen the scope of its activities. Then since June 2014, Sao Mai has had one more new mission to address employment related challenges for the blind.

In celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of Sao Mai Computer Center for the Blind 2001 – 2016, it is our honor to invite you to our workshop and on-site visit on the theme of “Empowering Visually Impaired People Through Education and Employment”” at 8.00 a.m., Dec 15th 2016 at Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for the Blind – 184 Nguyen Chi Thanh St., Ward 3, Dist. 10, Ho Chi Minh City. In the hope of connecting organizations for/of the blind, learning and sharing with other organizations abroad to provide better services for the blind, we are pleased to invite and welcome you to this celebration.

Please kindly confirm your attendance before 12/14/2016 with Ms. Tien at +84 905345903; or Mr. Phuc at +84 903979323; or email us at info@saomaicenter.org
