A total of 10,000 books on various subjects are being donated to 100 primary schools in HCM City under the HansaeYes24 Foundation’s book donation programme.

The annual programme aims to foster the love of reading, raise awareness about the importance of reading for school-aged children, and expand access to book reading at primary schools.

Books on various subjects like history, science, literary, culture and children’s stories are being delivered to schools this month.

Schools will have bookshelves to store the books, making it easier for reading.

As many as 40,000 books have been given to 400 primary schools in the city since the programme was launched by the South Korea-based Hansae company in coordination with the city’s Department of Education and Training in 2017. —VNS
