Since 2000, Vietnam’s economic growth rate has been among the highest in the world. In the meantime,concernsin part reflect the substantial differences in economic conditions between cities and rural areas in mountainous region where manyethnic groups live in.The official national language of Vietnam is Vietnamese.Since Vietnamese is the second language of ethnic minority people, their Vietnamese skills including writing and reading is very poor. This situation has contributed to the gap between the wealthy and the poor in Vietnam.
At the target school in Ra Mai Village, they now have 7 classrooms for 9 classes grade 1-9 of which 3 are temporary rooms. The 3 temporary classrooms are used by 52 students of grade 2, 3 and 4. Due to lack of classrooms, all children of this school have half-day schooling, while MOET’s(The Ministry of Education and Training)curriculum requires full-day schooling -receiving half of what any other student in the cities would normally receive, and in the process, giving them severe disadvantages for their future.
There arealso no toilets for students – they go home to use the bathroom or practice open defecation. Open defecation harms hygiene conditions around the school and causes students’ illness.Having no toilets at school is especially hard for teenage girl students. It has beenproved that lack of toilet facilities at school causes a lot of drop-out cases with girls.
Primary school children in Ra Mai village, Thuong Hoa commune have the safe learning environment and are able to access to water and sanitation facilities and the IT subject.
- Construction of 2 classrooms at school
- Construction of a latrine separated for girls and boys at school
- Provision of classroom equipment for these 2 new classrooms
- Provision of computers for pupils to learn and practice the IT subject
