Over the past years, DOLISA actively carried out the project in accordance with the purpose, target and commitment to donors, and at the same time was received aid and support training by vocational training institutions. Within the scope of educational support activities, the project will select excellent students to award scholarships in three vocational schools including Bac Ninh College of Industry; Bac Ninh Mechanical and Electrical College; Vocational Training and Rehabilitation Center for the disabled of the province.
At the ceremony, the ELIS Center awarded 360 scholarships to outstanding students of 03 schools with a total amount of 18,000 euros (worth over 500 million VND).
