Up until now, DRD has been working under the supervision of the Vietnam Union of Scientific and Technological Associations (VUSTA). DRD has been making every effort day after day to contribute to an equal and non-discriminatory society for persons with disabilities (PWDs). In the past ten years, with the support and companionship of donors and its partners, DRD has obtained the initial achievements noted below in strengthening the capacity of PWDs and promoting social integration for individuals and communities of PWDs.
DRD believes that every possible change in our world is created by the very change in ourselves - you and I. When persons with disabilities (PWDs) contribute their values to national socio-economic development, then the equal participation of PWDs and equal opportunities for them are indeed meaningful.
