Grab Thailand has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to enhance the earning capacity of the hearing impaired and thus allow them to take better care of their families.



Country Head of Grab Thailand Tarin Thaniyavarn and President of the National Association of the Deaf in Thailand (NADT Withayoot Bunnag signed a partnership, which is in line with Grab’s mission of improving the livelihoods of all Thais including those with impaired hearing.

Under this partnership, NADT will invite the hearing impaired who hold a valid driver’s license, use a hearing aid, and are literate in Thai and who are interested to register as Grab driver-partners to receive training, benefits and other driver-partner privileges from Grab.

Those with impaired hearing who are interested in becoming Grab driver-partners can apply to join a specially organised training session at the Grab Thailand office located on the 8th floor of Thanapoom Tower, Phetchaburi Road on October 29 – 30 for cars and October 31 for motorbikes. Training sessions start at 1pm.
