(BGO) – In spite of the physical disabilities, many youths in Bac Giang province are always full of energy and positive in life. They not only work and study wholeheartedly but also actively join social activities to inspire those with the same circumstances.
Self-reliance by hands
Chu Van Tu (born in 1989) in Tan Tien village, Huong Gian commune (Yen Dung district) has relied on the wheelchair for years. Due to the polyarthritis from the little boy, he must encounter several difficulties in any move.
Representatives of the provincial Youth Federation present the certificate of merit to Tu, Tuyen and Hoan (from right to left).
In 2014, he registered to attend a Photoshop training course in Hanoi for over 1 year. Initially, he had many difficulties because he had never used the computer before. Other learners studied every day but he learnt all the days and nights. He stayed awake all night for smoothly practising the operation on the keyboard.
After the course, Tu was highly evaluated by the lecturer for his capability, aesthetic and creative thinking, hence recruited to work at online photoshop division of Hanoi based Big Sale Joint Stock Company with a basic salary of 2 million VND (over 86 USD) (total income will be paid based on the actual products).

Despite he cannot move on his foot, Tu is always active in daily life activities instead of relying on his 60-year-old mother. Now, he still studies more to improve the skill, earn a higher salary and more stable income.
Due to congenital cartilage abnormalities, Vu Thi Tuyen (born in 1991) in Hoang Long village, Tan Hiep commune (Yen The district) is only 1.25-meter height and 30-kilogram weight at her grown-up stage. The spinal cord and all of the bone system were disordered leading to humpback and moving obstacles. She dropped off school after completing second grade.
After that, Tuyen spent most of the time on reading each word in the children story and books of his older brother. She is not only good at reading and writing but also clever at calculation.
Arising from her wish to be self-reliance on the economy, Tuyen applied to borrow the capital and asked for her parents’ help to open a small grocery at home for doing business. At the first day, Tuyen had many difficulties. She searched for several ways such as learning the experiences from others, joining the training course for vocation and business startup held by the communal Women’s Association and the Youth Association.

Gradually, Tuyen has gained the skill to sale and introduce the new products that suit the demand of the locals.
Turn the weak point to the advantage
Nguyen Van Hoan (born in 1998) is a third-year student at Psychology Department, University of Social Sciences and Humanities of Hanoi. He owns an abnormally developed body due to premature birth and lack of calcium.
Following this department, Hoan hopes to inspire other disabled people to remove the obstacles,

As the oldest child in an agricultural family in Duc Giang commune (Yen Dung district) with several lost in body and strength, Hoan regularly went to school with his friends. When coming to Hanoi and staying in a rented room away from his relative, he has to care for himself and arrange the study.
Adding to the industriousness in self-study and knowledge gain, Hoan also actively participates in charity activities to experience and practice the living and social skills. Nguyen Van Hoan is now an active member of Hoa Da Club (University of Social Sciences and Humanities of Hanoi).
In 2018, the provincial Youth Federation(PYF) gathered and launched the provincial Disabled Youth Club with more than 60 members from 10 districts and city. In the future, the PYF will further support and connect the programmes to train the vocation, consult on labour recruitment and living skill, encourage the member with a disability to remove the complex in order to confidently show their ability and raise the voice.
