The training is one of the annual activities of the Microfinance & Community Development Institute (MACDI) and Butterfly Basket which aims at building the capacity of parents/ caregivers of children with disability.
50 participants attended the one-day training with various activities from knowledge on childcare for children with disability to practical exercise that help children with disability become more confident and independent in daily lives. Q&A session attracted most attention of the parents and caregivers because they had the opportunities to consult the community base rehabilitation (CBR) experts about the status of their children.
Three special speakers participating in the training included Ms. Phuong Ha – Head of Club for parents who have children with disability in Ho Chi Minh city, Ms. Angelique and Ms. Silvie – Occupational therapist at Butterfly Basket from the Netherlands. The training inspired parents and caregivers to keep moving on with their life and encourage them to stand side by side with their children and support the children.
