From old corrugated iron walls to freshly painted classrooms

date_range2024-05-14

The primary school in Mỹ Long town, Cầu Ngang district (Trà Vinh), has long faced challenges with the number of classrooms and functional rooms, as it receives around 450 students each year but only has 10 suitable rooms. Among them, a row of 3 rooms was constructed from corrugated iron walls and roofs, gradually deteriorating and failing to meet the requirements of the current educational facilities.

Returning for a visit over four months after the project’s inauguration ceremony, we are delighted to witness the entirely fresh appearance of the school. The previous row of 3 rooms has been demolished and rebuilt with solid materials, now completed and adorned with bright, illuminated paintings. The construction will be ready for use in the next academic year, providing a stimulating and quality learning environment for hundreds of students each year.

This project belongs to saigonchildren’s School Building and Learning Environment programme, funded by MiTek and Orlar, alongside reciprocal funding from local authorities. Alike other projects of the programme, the design and construction of these classrooms follow the standards of the Ministry of Education and Training. Saigon Children’s Charity works closely with the local community to establish a people’s supervision committee that includes parents, teachers, and locals. These are in charge of coordinating the supervision of the construction, as well as preserving and maintaining the facilities in the future. This ensures the longevity of these new facilities so they can continue to impact the lives of the next generation.
