October 2019 – Savills has signed an official partnership with AMA Education Foundation to provide education and professional skills training to students.
After the inauguration of the ‘Savills Cares’ campaign in 2017, Savills Vietnam has continued the program via education and training for disadvantaged students. In addition to an ongoing partnership with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, Savills Vietnam has begun an official collaboration with AMA Education Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation. Founded in 2012 by Peter W. Mach, AMA’s core mission is to support Vietnamese students throughout the country via financial aid, mentorship, and development.
The first initiative with AMA is the creation of the ‘AMA – Savills Computer Room’ at the HCMC University of Education dormitory. The room provides disadvantaged students with a comfortable place to study, complete with eight up-to-date computers and a mini library. The area officially opened with the attendance of representatives from the University, AMA, Savills Vietnam and 50 students. During a speech to students, Mr. Neil MacGregor, Managing Director commented: “As universities in Vietnam increasingly introduce computer-based learning to the curriculum, the gap between students who can readily afford computer access and those who cannot have increased. Our goal is to provide computer access to as students as possible”.
Committing to our “Savills Cares” campaign, we frequently host training courses for AMA students to provide them with essential professional skills and offer internship opportunities at the Savills HCMC office. Industry experts host monthly training sessions, covering a variety of skills for personal and professional development.
