On June 4th Saigonchildren provided much-needed improvements to the learning environment for students of Thang My Hamlet Satellite Site of Hoa My 2 Primary School, with the generous sponsorship of QSR, and the support of the local community and local authorities.
The school has five classes in three classrooms, all of them were built a long time ago in a rudimentary manner. Due to the decaying condition, the classrooms were structurally unsound which endangered the safety of the students inside. In addition, the whole school would flood during the rainy season. Under such circumstances, the children felt uneasy during their daily schooling activities. Therefore, the need for new classrooms was becoming increasingly serious and the need for action to be taken was urgent. With this project, the total estimated cost to build and fully equip the new primary school was US $75,404.
Families whose children are studying at the school, the teachers, the community in Phung Hiep Commune, and the local government will also indirectly benefit from the project. The project includes building three classrooms and a playground, providing training in construction supervision to the Community Management Unit to equip them with basic skills and knowledge. Also, there will be workshops regarding school maintenance in order to raise awareness among the teachers and children on the importance of school hygiene and equip them with the skills to keep the primary school in good conditions. There will be a “Challenge Day” event for volunteers from QSR to work on the construction.
As a longstanding programme of saigonchildren, the School Building and Learning Environments Programme aims to construct or renovate kindergartens and primary schools, in order to bring a safe and effective learning environment to children in the most disadvantaged areas of Vietnam. Since 1992, our School Building Programme has built 198 schools, 534 classrooms and benefited 15,500 students across Vietnam.
