Background of project in Vietnam

The admission rate of children with disabilities in primary schools is around 25 %. This means that there are around 160,000 children who have been out of school. Recently,in Vietnam, there are 210,000 children from 6 to 10 years old. Among them there are only 52,244 children are going to schools. Many of provinces and cities in Vietnam have only one special school, so children who are living in rural area could not go to special schools in cities.

In a real situation, there are limitation of special schools is the undertaking of Vietnamese government to meet the movement of the inclusive education in the world, that.is very suitable. This project is to train inclusive education for teachers in public and private primary schools, to reach the goal is teachers will except children with disabilities in their classrooms and more children with disabilities will go to primary schools.

The government of Vietnam encourages to move on inclusive education to Education and Training Department ( DOET ) of provinces and cities. However, primary schools, DOETs in districts, DOETs of provinces and cities still face with difficulties.
