Quang Binh (VNA) – A ceremony was held on March 29 to inaugurate a 1.2 billion VND (54,000 USD) pre-school in Truong Son commune of Quang Ninh district, one of the most impoverished localities in the central province of Quang Binh

The school consists of two fully equipped classrooms with tables, chairs, teaching tools and a playground, giving local children a high-quality place of learning. 

This is part of the “Cung nhau xay dung tuong lai” (Building the future together) programme jointly organised by Prudential Vietnam, Plan Vietnam and the Saigon Children’s Charity. The programme has helped build 20 pre-schools nationwide between 2013- 2015. 

According to Vice Chairman of the Truong Son communal People’s Committee Nguyen Son Hai, the mountainous commune’s rate of poor households is over 66 percent. More than half of its population are from the Van Kieu ethnic minority group.

At the ceremony, children of the school received gifts from the donors, including clothes, school bags and learning tools.-VNA
