Nursery Garden for career guidance for children with disabilities - Narrow The Gap Community Program
Organization introduction
- Name: Niem Tin Support group for poor and disabled children
- Representative: Nguyen Thi Phuong Dung
- Title: Leader

Project Beneficiaries:
Direct beneficiaries:
- 18 disabled children aged 10 to 18 years old.
Indirect beneficiaries:
- 36 Parents in literacy classes for children with disabilities.

Challenges in the beneficiary community:
- At Cu Chi District's Literacy Class for Children with Disabilities, 18 children from 10 to 18 years old are getting the grade 1 education universalized, but they have no awareness of their career in life.
- Although they are socialised twice a week in class, they still have not had the opportunity to experience and get acquainted with some careers outside of society. Waiting for them to complete their cultural universalization and then career guidance for them is a waste of their time and future.

Project activities:
Organizing a flower garden in Ben Do hamlet, Tan Phu Trung commune, Cu Chi district, giving them the opportunity to experience the reality of growing flowers and develop their awareness of the natural environment.

Long-term goal:
- The flower gardens and ornamental plants made by the children must achieve the aesthetics, reasonable prices, suit the needs of the market and be accepted by consumers. The profit from the flower garden will be paid to the salaries of the teachers standing in the classrooms, enabling the children to continue learning culture. It is the first model of vocational guidance for children and people with disabilities to spread in the residential community of Cu Chi district.
- Eliminate stigma and misconceptions that children/people with disabilities are unemployed and not participants in society

Short-term goal:
- An Orchid Garden is organized for students with disabilities in the Literacy Classroom under the active support of parents and the Faith group.
- Their learning of culture is maintained by profit from orchids.
