Japan funds two primary schools in North Vietnam

The Embassy of Japan in Vietnam has provided US$244,964 for upgrading two primary schools in the northern provinces of Hoa Binh and Lang Son.

Yasuaki Tanizaki, Ambassador of Japan to Vietnam July 6 handed over the donation money as part of the ‘Grassroots and Human Security Project’ to Ha Trong Luu, chairman of the People’s Committee of Chieng Chau Commune in Hoa Binh Province and Hoang Van Quynh, chairman of the People’s Committee of Tu Doan Commune in Lang Son Province.

The primary schools in Chieng Chau Commune in Mai Chau District and Tu Doan Commune in Loc Binh District were constructed years ago and are now in a poor state and badly in need of repairs. This sum will help repair the buildings, making it safe and pleasant for the children and also provide necessary equipment for both the schools.

Ambassador Tanizaki said he hoped that the primary schools in Chieng Chau and Tu Doan Communes will greatly improve and the friendship and mutual understanding between Japan and Vietnam will be further strengthened.
