On their everyday journey to school, children in remote areas of Ca Mau Province have to cross raging waterways with a small “plastic-basket” boat. Some days, they are accompanied by adults but some days, they have to manage on their own. Getting to school should never be this dangerous.
With just 50,000, you can help to build bridges to provide underprivileged children with a safer path to school.
“Chuoi Cau Gieo Duyen” – “Bridges that connect to Destiny” is one of the projects funded by Narrow The Gap Program which builds concrete bridges in Ca Mau Province to improve local living conditions.
