There was no school for the Deaf where they could study in sign language in Vietnam.

The Nippon Foundation began to support the higher education for the Deaf in Vietnam in cooperation with the Vietnamese government and the university in 2000 so that the Deaf could be educated in sign language.

Currently there are 11 Deaf students enrolled in the university.

This time, the Deaf students will visit Japan to observe an educational case in Japan. On this occasion, this meeting will provide the opportunity to learn about the education in Vietnam and "Disability and Development".

Language used: Japanese and Japanese Sign Language
