On October 25th , Phong Dong Kindergarten, in Phong Dong Commune, Vinh Thuan District, Kien Giang Province, held an opening ceremony featuring local authorities and representatives from saigonchildren. This beautiful newly built kindergarten is sponsored by our generous donors from the Saigon Summer Ball and Charity Cycle Adventure 2016  organized by saigonchildren.

The facilities of the old school were in a very poor condition which was not an ideal learning environment for the children. However, the situation has been improved significantly. The temporary classrooms built from old corrugated iron sheets and raw timber wood have now been rebuilt with the design and structure complying with the standards set for school buildings by the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam.

The new classrooms can now accommodate up to 45 children in each academic year for many years to come. Now the students and teachers can finally settle in the new school with many remarkable renovations, including:

  • Two classrooms, hygiene facilities, a playground (200m2), a school gate, and a hedge;
  • Outdoor toys on the playground, furniture and equipment such as cabinets, shelves, chairs and desks and other necessary learning resources.

The new playground and classrooms are now ready to welcome to students
