The camera company Canon Vietnam carried out many social activities across the country in October, improving the learning environment for teachers and pupils in disadvantaged areas.

On October 25, the company inaugurated a new friendship kindergarten in Kim Boi district, the northern mountainous province of Hoa Binh.

This was the latest education centre opened as part of the “Canon friendship school chain” project, which has been carried out in many localities across the country during 2013.

On the occasion, Canon also presented 14 sets of tables and chairs for pupils, one for the teacher and one bookcase and many books to the school.

Earlier this month in the northern province of Tuyen Quang, Canon also funded three new classrooms for the Ban Hiep primary school in Chiem Hoa district. It also gave 5 bookcases, 60 sets of tables and chairs and many learning aids to the school.

On October 12-13, about 50 employees from three Canon factories helped install bookcases and the new furniture in the school. They also helped clean the school and organised a photography exhibition.

With its efforts, Canon has said it hopes to support Vietnam’s educational development, in turn helping the country’s industrialisation and socio-economic development.-VNA
