The project “Bringing the Internet to villages” by the Vietnam Internet Fund (VNIF) was launched in Moc Hoa district, the Mekong Delta province of Long An on September 29.

Accordingly, 40 computers, worth nearly 400 million VND (18,900 USD), were handed over to Tan Thanh Primary School in the district, the district People’s Committee and 12 border guard posts in the province.

Moc Hoa is a remote, disadvantaged district located in the Plain of Reed, bordering Cambodia.

The Moc Hoa project is the fourth of its kind undertaken by VNIF, which is managed by VNG Joint Stock Company. It will allow easier Internet access and greater networking benefit for underprivileged people, particularly children living in remote areas.

The programme has previously launched in Huu Lung district in the northern mountainous province of Lang Son, Dak Song district in the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong and Yen Thanh district in the northern central province of Nghe An, with a total investment of 800 million VND (over 37,700 USD).-VNA
