Plan International in Vietnam will provide 3.2 million USD to support poor children in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum between now and 2016.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) to this effect was signed by the Kon Tum provincial People’s Committee and the organisation in Kon Tum city on Jan. 10.

The pledge forms a continuation of the project to improve living conditions for poor children in the locality.

The organisation will help raise awareness of children who are poor or disadvantaged of their rights and potential, especially in meeting basic living needs, while improving necessary skills.

Over the past 15 years, Kon Tum province has received 25 million USD in non-refundable aid through 197 projects from 38 organisations of 14 countries and territories.

Most of the projects focus on education, health care, social welfare and rural infrastructure in disadvantaged localities./.
