By Thoa Nguyen in Hanoi

The documentary film named “Facing Forward” by Isaak Le and Vincent Baumont will be screened for the first time at the Goethe Institute, 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street at 5 p.m. on March 3.

There are more than 12 million people living with disabilities in Vietnam. Many of them are children living in rural areas, where access to rehabilitation and educational services is limited. Not only living with disabilities, their families face challenges such as financial burdens, helplessness, despair and stigmatization.

The documentary “Facing Forward” follows the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and local experts in their work with children with disabilities and their families. The film shows the challenges of these families and how parents learn to better understand the special needs of their children and the importance of encouraging and stimulating their development through specially designed interventions.

The video will be screened free and in both Vietnamese and English.
