Hanoi (VNA) – A project to improve pre-school and primary education for ethnic minority children in northern and central regions has benefited more than 6,000 children and teachers in Sin Ho district in Lai Chau province and Kon Plong district in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum over the past three years.

The figure was announced at a conference in Hanoi on October 23 to review the project, which was conducted by Plan International and local partners with the support of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

With total investment of 1.7 million USD, the project aims to improve the learning environment for children and ensure a smooth transition from kindergarten to primary school by training pre-school and primary school teachers as well as parents, along with upgrading infrastructure.

The project has also helped to enhance teachers and education managers’ awareness of the significance of a higher quality learning environment and student-cored teaching methods./.
