The For Vietnamese Smiles Group’s For Children in Mountainous Areas Project aims to help children in 12 northern mountainous provinces.

On January 20, the project's executive committee and Muong Lat District People's Committee opened two classrooms at Loc Ha school site of Nhi Son Commune Primary School. Both of the classrooms are 62.5 square metres and cost VND145m (USD6,200).

This is the fourth educational construction under the project which has helped improve the studying environment for the children. Other projects are in On Village, Muong Lat District, Con Village in Lang Chanh District and Vui Village in Quan Hoa District.


The charity programme to benefit disadvantaged children

In early 2019, the project will continue to expand and six more classrooms will be built in Tam Thanh Commune, Quan Son District.

Nearly 1,500 winter clothes have also been given to the children in Quang Chieu 1 Primary School, Quang Chieu 2 Primary School, Trung Ly 1 Primary School and Nhi Son Primary School in the Winter Warmth Charity Programme.

The schools suffered great damage during the severe floods in late August and early September last year.

Many individuals and charity groups have shown supports and donated nearly VND160m (USD6,800) to the project.
