On 12th November 2013, 13 skillful students of the hairdressing class participated in the Community Serving Day which is organized every year by the Hairdressing Class of Thang Long School and funded by SCC. Around 50 customers – children, elderly people, women and men from the poor community of Ward 14 in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 8 came to the event to have their hair done or to have a manicure and pedicure. The event received full support from the local authorities who provided a spacious and comfortable area to work in and who also informed local people about the event loudly on the loudspeaker!
