TVU – Tra Vinh University and Nova Scotia Community College organize a workshop to exchange knowledge and support entrepreneurial skills for Gia Lai Community College students from June 26 to June 28. At the same time, they arrange cultural and culinary exchanges for faculty members and students from the three institutions.

This activity belongs to the Entrepreneurship Sharing Program for faculty members and students of Tra Vinh University and Nova Scotia Community College, which starts at Tra Vinh University on June 19.

The event in Gia Lai has Associate Professor, Dr. Pham Tiet Khanh, who is the Chairman of the Vietnam Community College Association and the Chairman of the Council of Tra Vinh University, along with Master Pham Van Dieu, the Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Community College Association and the Principal of Gia Lai Community College. From Nova Scotia Community College, there are Ms. Kellie McMullin – the Director of Training, Mr. Scott J Patterson – the Department of Financial Services, and Ms. Christine White – a Faculty Member, accompanied by 9 participating students.

  

During the workshop, students from Tra Vinh University and Nova Scotia Community College present reports on three Entrepreneurship Projects. These projects include the New Beginning project, where they recycle single-use plastic bags into unique bracelets, hair ties, and fashion handbags. The Artificial Civet Coffee project also uses enzyme technology to replicate the flavor of natural civet coffee. Additionally, the TVU Second-hand Store project is about collecting used clothes and items for educational purposes and environmental protection. These three projects are chosen from entrepreneurial ideas aiming to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. They receive support from the workshop participants.

Mr. Pham Van Dieu, the Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Community College Association, expresses gratitude for the cooperation and sharing of opportunities among VACC members. He sees this as an opportunity for students to enhance their knowledge, learn new skills, and develop themselves. It also helps faculty members and students from the three institutions improve their entrepreneurial skills and contribute to implementing the memorandum of understanding signed between the schools.

  

Within the framework of the workshop, faculty members and students from the three institutions exchange knowledge and entrepreneurial skills. They also discuss cultural aspects between the regions of the two countries. Moreover, they have the opportunity to visit, engage in cultural exchanges, and share methods of preparing some Vietnamese dishes.
