Celebrating 10 Years On

We celebrated our 10th Birthday on 27 March 2018 and want to congratulate and thank all involved… did you know that until 2010 there were no comprehensive or fulltime training courses for speech therapists. With our partners in Vietnam TFA instigated, developed and supported Vietnam’s first ever, two-year postgraduate speech therapy training course. The first group of 18 Vietnamese Speech Therapists graduated from University of Medicine Pham Ngoc Thach (UPNT) in Ho Chi Minh City in September 2012, followed by the second cohort of 15 in October 2014. Between September 2016 and May 2017, a further 32 students participated in a postgraduate paediatric speech therapy also at UPNT, so that in under 10 years there are now 65 qualified Vietnamese speech therapists (SLTs) working through the country. This would have happened without support from volunteers…since 2010, up to 110 volunteer speech pathologists and academics on 141 occasions have contributed over 1,825 days of specialist expertise in teaching, clinical education and mentoring with our programs in Vietnam… with support from 58 different interpreters who completed more than 7,330 interpreting hours and 48 translators have translated almost 1.5 million words. Also thank you to all of our generous supporters for their fundraising or donations.
