Skills Training Project

The Deaf Development Program is preparing to begin a job skills training project to improve employment opportunities for deaf people. After surveying the wishes of many deaf people and researching the training options, DDP is now preparing to start a pilot training project with Mith Samlanh (Friends), a local NGO that works with street children.  Today a group of deaf students visited Mith Samlanh to see their ten different skills training areas.  Next six of the students will be selected for the pilot project.
