Dantri Newspaper co-operated with the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and Thuong Xuan District People's Committee in the northern central province of Thanh Hoa to hold a ground-breaking ceremony for a local primary school.



Dantri Newspaper helds a ground-breaking ceremony for a local primary school on July 9.

Lying in a mountainous area some 40 kilometres from the district's centre, Xem Dot Primary School currently has only two classrooms for over 70 students who are from the Thai ethnic group.

After more than twenty years of use, the classrooms have badly deteriorated, posing dangers for teachers and students. There are no playgrounds, WCs, or clean water.

With financial support from Dantri's readers and other kind donors, the newspaper will invest over VND500 million to upgrade and build facilities at the school.

Speaking at the project's ground-breaking ceremony, the school's headmaster, Ha Xuan Sang, expressed his happiness that the school will have new, better facilities.

"Our school was built in 2003 and has badly deteriorated after 21 years," Sang said. "Our teachers and students have hoped for better new facilities, but due to the limited local budget, we've been unable to arrange investment for many years. We thank Dantri Newspaper and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs for your great support."

At the ceremony, Deputy Editor-In-Chief of Dantri Newspaper Nguyen Xuan Toan expressed his hope that the project will improve the conditions for teachers and pupils at Xem Dot School.

Toan also shared that Dantri had built nearly 80 schools and bridges nationwide.

"In addition to these projects, we're also carrying out other charitable activities, including building houses for low-income people and presenting student health insurance cards," Toan said. In this Thuong Xuan District, we've built six houses for low-income people and one school in the past two years."

Toan expressed his sincere thanks to donors and local authorities for their valuable support in enabling Dantri to carry out these projects.
