Meet our web coding teacher Mr Tùng

5/13/2019

Nguyễn Hữu Hoàng Tùng is the web coding teacher at REACH. He has an unmatched passion  for teaching IT and loves his work.


“From a young age, I have been passionate about education development for children and youth, as I believe that it is the key to transforming our country’s socio – economic status.”

He’s been working at REACH since 2017 and came on board to start the web coding course. Since then he has trained three batches of students with fifty graduates. Of those graduates 90% have gone on to find gainful employment in the IT industry.

The path, however, for the students can be difficult and long.

“REACH works with the most disadvantaged youth across Vietnam. Most are exposed to very little technology; many have never even used a computer before I meet them.  Among these students there are a number of those with disabilities.”

That said, when they do graduate it can be richly rewarding.

“Although it may be impossible for them to walk, or even just do the daily things needed for life like everyone else, they are able to learn from me and afterwards get a job in the IT field. It’s an amazing transformation.”

Mr Tùng is currently teaching his fourth batch of students and continues to fight discrimination by upskilling local youths and setting them on the road to success.

“Working and witnessing their growth and strength every day, in turn, has inspired me to continue doing this work. I believe that, through this job, I am not only able to help change the lives of disadvantaged youth in a sustainable way, but I can also contribute to the development of an inclusive economy for my country. There is still some discrimination here and through my work I hope to be able to change this.”

You can help Mr Tùng train even more disadvantaged youths. Consider making a donation through out Global Giving campaign that can be found here: https://www.globalgiving.org/donate/11762/reach/
