Work started on the construction of a kindergarten in Ly Son island district, central Quang Ngai province on August 8. 

The project, including a two-storey building with four classrooms, was built at a total cost of 5.3 billion VND.

Of the amount, some 2 billion VND (91,700 USD) was sponsored by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) via the programme “Nghia tinh Hoang Sa, Truong Sa” (Love for Hoang Sa, Truong Sa archipelagos) and 2.2 billion VND (100,500 USD) was sourced from the People’s Committee of central Quang Ngai province while the remaining was donated by lecturers of Ton Duc Thang University in Ho Chi Minh City.

Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, VGCL President Dang Ngoc Tung said the project aims to offer children on Ly Son island better childcare facilities and helps grow them into good citizens.

Tung also presented the Ly Son kindergarten an audio system and an electronic organ, worth 26 million VND.-VNA
