We believe in giving back:
At Speakable, we're grateful for what our clients have given us and for having the opportunity to help so many people from all walks of life. So we express that gratefulness by giving back to the community, locally and abroad!
Speakable assumed some of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) designed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. Here is how Speakable is part of this global:
- Goal #1: No Poverty. Speakable is engaged in creating balance in citizens’ finances, applying fair prices, negotiating fair relationships with suppliers and contributing to charities such as Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation.
- Goal #4: Quality Education. The team of SLPs and Case Manager are completely engaged in using the best teaching-learning techniques to provide effective and involving sessions to all clients.
- Goal #17: Partnerships for the Goals. Through the Sub-Goal #17-5 (Invest in Least Developed Countries), initiatives such as the Speakable Child Project Vietnam 2019 aim to provide better conditions for kids from poor areas to study and have a potentially better quality of life while growing.
The mission delegation comprised by Speakable staff members spent the week between September 29 to October 8, 2019 in Hanoi, visiting Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, observing and helping out where the delegation is able to. The mission delegation also visited local schools, orphanages and taught English.
However, Speakable’s interest on contributing to Vietnamese individuals is targeted for the Australian territory as well. In 2016, Speakable teamed up with Central Queensland University to create a 10-week program aimed at improving English pronunciation for Vietnamese speakers. The program is well-researched and specifically tailored to the difficulties that Vietnamese speakers face whilst learning English as a Second Language. It is designed for the individuals who have previously participated in General English courses or have prolonged (over 5 years) experience learning English. This program will help customers speak English with clarity and fluency. Being able to communicate well will create more success in personal and work life.
