  • Description


    This group was established by Tuan in early 2013. He has spinal cord injury (SCI) after a severe accident 4 years ago. After a long time of treatment and rehabilitation in the hospital and at home, He decided to move out and live independently. He was the first person in Da Nang who received support from Hanoi Independent Living Centre for peer counselling and Personal Assistant (PA). However, the PA system in Da Nang is not very effective.He rented a house in Hai Chau District, Da Nang and lived alone for the first month after moving out. After that, some students came and supported me every day. He decided to let students to live in my house for free. They supported him when He needed and He became more independent in the life.
    He started some social activities such as teaching IT for a student with disabilities, English class for people with disabilities (PWDs) and volunteers, PA training, hosting tourists in Da Nang, and peer counseling for wheelchair-users. All activities are at my rented house and paid by the savings He had accumulated prior to my accident. After some months, this life has become well-known in Da Nang, especially in some universities. More students come to my group to share experience and study English.

    Now Working as a social worker him and his friends were inspired to found a Non-profit organization with the desire of running more sustainable and effective community development projects. This Center was registered on June 1st 2017 with the local government, working on the activities as follows:
    Clinical medicine
    Preventive medicine
    Technology Transfer Services

    What else ...

    From our point of view, the Danang's traffic system is one of the best systems in Vietnam. There are many tourist attractions around the city. Now I am living in a simple place which is near 2 big local supermarkets (Han and Con) and some famous universities. It's also convenient for travelers staying in my house because they can take the local bus to Hoi AN and My Son easily from here.
