The HansaeYes24 Foundation will donate 10,000 children’s books to primary schools situated in HCM City’s outlying districts for them to celebrate Viet Nam Book Day on April 21.

The programme seeks to give young students useful books on various subjects like science, culture, history and children’s stories and 100 bookshelves to 100 primary schools at the end of this month.

The foundation said it was committed to carrying out the annual programme, which was launched last year, in the next few years to encourage and develop a reading culture among young students and raise public awareness of the importance of reading for school-aged children.

The foundation was established in 2014 by the South Korea-based Hansae Co. Ltd. — VNS
