The Singapore International Fund and Hanoi Library on March 24 launched the “ Mobile library – Wheel of Knowledge” project.

The 78,000 USD project will bring books, stories, study tools, educational games and internet-connected computers to 4,000 poor children in 10 Hanoi outlying districts of Phu Nghia, Bach Thach, Noi, Thang Tri, Luong Chau, Chu Son, Hoang Xa, Dai Dong, Phu Luu and Nam Hong.

Through this project, the children will have a chance to improve their reading culture and research skills, with the support of volunteers from Singapore and Hanoi library.

According to Vietnam’s General Statistics Office, access to internet services is very limited for about 60 percent of Hanoi’s rural population./.
