2002 ... 2012

With the adoption, in 1989, of the « Doi Moi » outward orientated policy, the Vietnamese government saw the development of tourism as a priority. Hotels increased and diversified their offer but qualified staff was hard to find owing to the lack of professional training possibilities. In 1996, the Ministry of Tourism requested (via the European Commission) aid from foreign investors to set up high-quality training schemes. Triangle Génération Humanitaire responded with the proposal to create a catering school specialising in Franco-Vietnamese cuisine. The trainees would be young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in Ho Chi Minh City. This school opened its doors in 2001. Ten years later, in 2011, when the project was handed over to Vietnamese authorities, 550 youth - in possession of a state diploma, and for most of them of a job – had been trained to work in hotels and restaurants.

Concurrently, between 2006 and 2009, TGH provided support to a vocational training center for disabled people (improving training and access to employment).
