In January and April 2021, Vinschool’s charity group, comprised of School Management and parent representatives, travelled to the 04 Central provinces hardest hit by the historic floods in October 2020, namely Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien-Hue, to hand gifts and scholarships worth a total of VND3.4 billion to local School Boards and students.
In October 2020, continuous floods hit the Central Vietnam, causing houses and schools to be submerged in water. As the hardest-hit provinces, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien-Hue could not help preventing long interruptions in local students’ learning. At that time, without hesitation, Vinschool launched the “Dress for Donations” campaign among all students, parents, teachers, and staff across the system. VND3.4 billion was raised after only 4 days to help students in the Central region restore their lives and continue their schooling. This campaign clearly demonstrated one of Vinsers’ core values – “Caring”.
After conducting surveys on the flood damage and the needs of each school, apart from giving cash donations to students from adversely affected households, Vinschool also presented many classroom objects and teaching equipment of long-term value such as desks and chairs, lockers, water purifiers, desktop computers, printers, televisions, books, etc. to 30 schools in Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien-Hue.
Mr. Hoang Trong Nho, Principal of Tran Hung Dao Secondary school (A Luoi district, Thua Thien-Hue province), shared: “The historic floods last October damaged all of our computers. Before Vinschool’s support arrived, three students had to share a computer. Now each has one; their learning conditions are much better”.
Mr. Tran Huu Khuong, Principal of Cam Tuyen Primary and Secondary school (Quang Tri province), was deeply touched: “I’m very thankful to Vinschool Education System and benefactors for being very kind to us. Your care and support will have positive impacts on our education and training and motivate our students to strive for academic success despite their poverty”.
Hoang Nhat Tan, a student from Class 9A, Cam Tuyen Primary and Secondary school, was overwhelmed with gratitude: “I highly appreciate the cash donation given to me and will spend it on clothes and school supplies. I promise that I will try harder to achieve higher academic results”.
Mr. Dao Manh Hung, Head of the Quang Tri Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front, expressed appreciation to Vinschool Education System for helping local schools address their difficulties and ensure effective teaching and learning, and for providing disadvantaged students with better learning conditions.
In return, Mr. Hung presented the “Heart of Gold” Certificate of Appreciation to Vinschool Education System for offering practical help to the local schools and students heavily affected by floods.
Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong Giang, parent of a student from Class 4B1, Vinschool The Harmony Primary school, one of those who joined Vinschool’s charitable trip to the Central region, said: “I’m very happy that my daughter was taught to do good deeds right in her early years at Vinschool. She is going to finish Primary school soon. The older she gets, the more she cares about others. She is always inclined to do kind acts. I’m glad that she is studying in such a compassionate environment”.
With their loving hearts, people have generated significant impacts on the community despite their small individual contributions. Our sincere thanks go to Vinschool parents, students, teachers and staff for being really supportive of the “Dress for Donations” campaign.
