Mr. Nguyễn Vĩnh Bình – The Principal of Nghị Đức 1 primary school told that “Before, our school yard was often flooded in the rainy season which made the difficulty for the teachers and students. Many students were slipped on the yard and the teachers felt uncomfortable when they had to wear Ao Dai in the rainy season. And, in the dry season, the school yard was very dusty. Nowadays, although we only enough afford to build 310 m2 but it is so good for us. I feel glad to see the children to play together in break time in new school yard. Especially, now we have a good place to organize weekly flag-raising and training dental health for student on the concrete yard. We are very grateful to BBGV and Thien Chi supported us this program”
