The Samsung Life Insurance Co. Ltd. (SLI) on April 22 handed over classrooms equipped with computing devices to two secondary schools in Hanoi’s suburb districts of Dan Phuong and Thanh Oai.

Each of the two classrooms consists of 30 sets of computers with sufficient support devices. The total facilities are worth more than 500 million VND (23,800 USD).

The activity was part of a project providing schools with computing facilities, agreed by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations, SLI and the Global Civic Sharing organisation (GCS) from the Republic of Korea .

Bui Thi Hoa, Director of the GCS’ Vietnam-Korea Cooperation Centre, said the project, funded with 1.44 million USD by SLI, aims to improve disadvantaged children’s access to better learning conditions.

In 2013, it presented such classrooms to 11 schools in Hanoi. Nine more schools in the capital and Vinh Phuc and Hai Duong provinces are expected to benefit from the project this June.-VNA
