If you have six minutes to spare, please watch this video about a girl in Vietnam who has more than made up for lost time with vocational training support from REACH, an awesome youth employment NGO born out of a programme by Plan Vietnam, who continue to support REACH with funding. Since 2004, REACH has trained more than 9,000 young people.
Video by the fantastic Paul Zetter.
