The Vietnamese Embassy in Laos and PetroVietnam Oil Corporation (PVOil) on November 1st presented a kindergarten school to the administration in Do village, Bun Neua district, Phongsaly province, Laos.
Located on an area of 400m2, the kindergarten school includes three classrooms for 80 students, a room for teachers and six toilets.
The school is also equipped with 84 sets of desks and chairs, along with all necessary school stationery for three classrooms and six sets of outdoor play equipment. Total funding for the construction and equipment is over LAK800 million.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Nguyen Kim Son, General Director of PVOil in Laos, said his company has done business in Laos for many years and he himself has had the opportunity to go to many provinces of Laos, so he clearly recognizes the difficulties of Lao people in remote areas, especially education facilities for children. Based on the Vietnam – Laos special relationship and responsibility of a Vietnamese business for social issues in Laos, the company has cooperated with the Vietnamese Embassy in order to support the school for Phongsaly province.
On this occasion, on behalf of all officials and employees of the company, Mr. Nguyen Kim Son thanked the administrations at all levels of Phongsaly province for allowing and creating conditions for the company to make their social responsibilities for poor students in remote areas, to help them have better conditions to study to become useful people to further build and develop the country of Laos. He also hoped that in the future the company will continue to be able to help the people in Laos build useful buildings such as schools, clinics and clean water systems.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Laos Nguyen Manh Hung hoped that the management board of the school and the local administration would preserve and use the school effectively, so that preschool children in the locality can go to school to have the best health and knowledge backgrounds before becoming students of primary school.
Deputy Governor of Phongsaly province Thongsi Saosouphom thanked the Vietnamese Embassy and PVOil in Laos for the practical and significant gift.
He stressed that as a remote province, with more than 90% of its area being mountainous, its infrastructure is extremely difficult while the economic life of the local people is very needy, and so the presentation of the school of Vietnamese Embassy and PVOil have helped alleviate difficulties of the people. It also represents the consistent special solidarity relationship the Party, State and people of Vietnam have always reserved for Laos. It also shows that Vietnamese enterprises doing business in Laos are companies with high social responsibility and want to do long-term investment in Laos./.
