Cau Ke, Tra Vinh – 30 Jan 2018
21 members of QSR Vietnam joined the Challenge Day taking place on 30 Jan with enthusiasm.
QSR Challenge Day is one of the activities of “Loving is Sharing” program, which was started with the building of a primary school in Hoa Tan A – Tra Vinh from September 2017. The collaboration between saigonchildren in many education projects, has proven that, QSR is one of the enthusiastic and trusted sponsor for activities supporting underprivileged children in Vietnam.
During the Challenge Day event, QSR Vietnam members helped paint and decorate the school. This wasn’t only about engagement, but also the opportunity to help experience the positive impact QSR is providing for the community. Moreover, this is also the chance for saigonchildren to work with and understand more about our partners.
After 5 months of focused and active collaboration among saigonchildren, QSR and local authorities, the primary school is coming together and is being prepared to open right after Tet Holiday. The new year is a promise of happiness for the 94 primary school students of Hoa Tan commune, Cau Ke Dist, Tra Vinh Province with a brand new spacious, and safe environmentOnly 5 months ago, our children’s learning environment was in poor condition. The old school was degraded due to the rain which caused many leaks, concrete pillars revealed the steel. Learning in an unsafe and inadequate environment can demotivate children to follow their education path.
The trip brought such an impression for both QSR members and the school board. In the next future, QSR and saigonchildren will together continue to implement education projects so to bring positive changes for children’s lives in Tra Vinh.
