HCMC – Lifestart Foundation, a charitable organization, has recently provided 15 smart TVs along with stands and wall mounts to primary, secondary, and high schools in the central coastal province of Quang Nam.
The TVs and other equipment, which have a combined value of VND220 million, have been given to 10 schools in Phuoc Son District, benefiting over 1,500 local students and teachers.
This initiative aims to enhance teaching methods in preparation for the 2023-2024 academic year. It was carried out in collaboration with the Quang Nam Union of Friendship Organizations and the Red Cross of Phuoc Son District.
Phuoc Son is one of the poor areas in Quang Nam Province, primarily inhabited by ethnic minority groups.
Many schools in this district lack necessary equipment for educational purposes, hindering efforts to promote digital transformation and the use of information technology in education.
Karen Leonard, the founder of Lifestart Foundation, said that the program is aimed at improving the quality of education in disadvantaged schools for both teachers and students.
Previously, Lifestart Foundation provided clean water filtration systems meeting the Ministry of Health’s standards to over 8,500 students and teachers in 28 schools across Quang Nam Province. This program had an estimated cost of VND1.3 billion.
Established in 2000, Lifestart Foundation is a non-profit organization supporting disadvantaged Vietnamese families. The organization has given VND33 billion in education scholarships to underprivileged youth in central Vietnam.
