Samsung Vietnam, the Dong Nai provincial Union of Friendship Organisations, and the Korea Food Organisation for the Hungry International (KFHI)/Korea on Friday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to implement the Samsung Hope School project in Tam Phuoc Ward, Bien Hoa City.

This is the first Hope School being built in the south and also the fifth School in the Samsung Hope School project series – Samsung Hope School in Viet Nam, after Bac Ninh, Thai Nguyen, Bac Giang and Lang Son.

The project will be built with modern equipment, synchronised systems including class areas, gymnasium, library, play ground, cafeteria and restrooms.

Samsung Hope School will be the place to carry out “The Child Development Programme (CDP)” for 300 – 500 disadvantaged children from primary to high school in Dong Nai. They will have a chance to be trained and to develop many different abilities such as music, art and English as well as experience many diverse vocational courses in order to orient their future.

The students will get better knowledge in physical and social fields through a lot of medical education programmes, health care, medicine supports, drugs knowledge and sex education along with many other helpful activates.

The budget for the project during the 10 year period will be more than VND22 billion including more than VND11 billion donated by Samsung. The remainder will be mobilised from other charities associations, individual donators and Samsung Vietnam.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Choi Joo Ho, Samsung Vietnam President said: “Samsung Hope Schools has been built in many different places – where Samsung’s employees are born and grow up, as an expression of gratitude to them, their family and their hometowns.

"With the sustainability growth philosophy foundation of “Education for the future generation”, we hope that this fifth Hope School of Samsung will create more opportunities to learn and nurture the dreams of more and more students – the future generations in Dong Nai and Viet Nam."

The Samsung Hope School is one of many social programmes aiming to spread education, knowledge, vision and create a good foundation for future generations in Viet Nam.

Samsung has deployed four other School Hope projects, two of them are in Bac Ninh and Thai Nguyen which opened in 2013 and 2018 respectively, the school in Bac Giang is expected to open later this year, and the one in Lang Son is already in the pre-construction stage. — VNS
