Dinh Thuy Phuong, a highly accomplished Vietnamese national, has been honored with the esteemed Global Excellence Assembly 2023 Women of Influence Award. This recognition highlights Phuong's exceptional contributions in the fields of business, innovation, and community development.
As the Co-Founder of Mana.st Co., Ltd., Phuong has demonstrated unwavering dedication to creating positive change in society. The company's primary focus is on providing job opportunities and vocational courses to current and former drug addicts, enabling them to rebuild their lives and reintegrate successfully into society.
Phuong's journey began with her selfless service as a volunteer teacher at drug addiction rehabilitation centers in 2018. Witnessing the challenges faced by drug addicts, she recognized the significant role of unemployment in contributing to addiction cases. Motivated by a passion for empowering others, Phuong co-founded Mana.st Co., Ltd. in 2020. Since then, she has been committed to empowering drug addicts through employment and vocational training, enabling them to overcome their struggles and find new paths to success.
Beyond her efforts in addressing addiction issues, Phuong's innovative initiatives have had a profound impact on sustainable development goals. Mana.st has introduced the groundbreaking Reed-based Bio Circular Green Eco-system, which tackles the problem of reed invasion in agricultural lands.
By purchasing reeds from farmers, Mana.st not only helps increase their income but also reduces air and heat pollution resulting from the burning of reeds. Furthermore, the company's self-cross breed reed species have exhibited remarkable phytoremediation capabilities, contributing to the restoration of polluted and poor lands.
Moreover, Phuong's commitment to environmental sustainability is demonstrated through the development of pro-health zero-waste eco-products. Her company has successfully introduced various environmentally friendly commodities, including sugar-less reed-based herbal tea, natural reed straws, chemical-free Vietnamese Pho noodles made from reed leaves, and handicrafts crafted from reed flowers. These initiatives promote good health, responsible consumption and production, and contribute to environmental sustainability.
Dinh Thuy Phuong's exceptional achievements, relentless pursuit of positive change, and innovative solutions have rightly earned her the Global Excellence Assembly 2023 Women of Influence Award. Her visionary leadership and dedication to social impact serve as an inspiration to entrepreneurs and changemakers worldwide.
Please join us in congratulating Dinh Thuy Phuong on this well-deserved recognition and in acknowledging her inspiring contributions to society.
