In the morning of Apr 23rd, at Nam Thai A commune, An Bien district, Kien Giang province, SCC and the local authorities held a Groundbreaking ceremony of the new Nam Thai A kindergarten, Xeo Vet B site.
Nam Thai A is a coastal commune with limited transportation. The commune faces many problems with kindergarten education as there is no proper school for children, Many of the students have to study with their senior peers at primary level, leading to an unsuitable environment for the children to learn.
Kien Giang Union of Friendship Organisations (KUFO) made a proposal to SCC early this year and after a time of research, SCC have been able to work with Premier Oil, who agreed to provide a funding in partnership with local funding, to build a 2 classroom kindergarten to improve the quality of education for the kids at Nam Thai A commune.
More than 100 representatives including local governments, teachers, parents and more than 60 kids attended this exciting event.
Mr. Hong, Chairman of KUFO, expressed his gratitude to Premier Oil, the sponsor, SCC and project coordinators for this special gift to Nam Thai A on the occasion of 40th year of Vietnam reunification.
