As the person who takes the first step of Revina, CEO Nguyen Le-Hai (Henry) could not hide his emotions while speaking at the celebration. “We could not be prouder. It’s been a long journey but the results speak for themselves. We have over 25 full-time staff, 14 of which have come through REACH’s training program. It really feels amazing to have reached the one year mark.”

During the event, he also sends regards to REACH center, volunteers and supporters for always standing side by side with Revina from the early days. He also declared that Revina has been and will always be consistent with the goal of a social enterprise, which is to bring positive values ​​to the community.

Sharing with the company’s achievements, Ms. Tam Pham Thi Thanh  – CEO of REACH was equally impressed: “Social enterprises are incredibly important to our future ambitions. As we strive toward sustainable development, social enterprises form an ever more important part of that goal. Revina has crossed the one year mark and continuing to go from strength to strength, shows that we’re on the right track.”

“Social enterprises are the wave of the future for NGOs in Vietnam and we intend to ride that wave,” she said.

Sharing the reasons for choosing this theme, Ms. Van Anh Tran (Alexis) – Marketing staff said: “For a social enterprise aiming to create career opportunities for Vietnamese disadvantaged youth, we always head towards an equal workplace, which respects the differences in each member’s race, personality or background.

Like imperfect exposures with varying brightness in photography, each Revina’s member has his/her own individual characteristics. But together, we are a united family, always willing to support each other, to embrace the flaw and conquer the new journeys ahead. That is our aspiration.”

Follow the stories of Revina, the party did not lack any laughter with funny games and songs – performed by each department of the company. Thereby, the guests were able to understand more about the task of each team and Revina’s services.
